Billy Ray Cyrus told Miley to dump Liam Hemsworth or ‘he’ll boycott the wedding’

Miley Cyrus Liam Hemsworth

Billy Ray Cyrus is pouting, and when Billy Ray pouts, he gets results. The man and his mullet are very good at the art of emotional blackmail, and I think this time around, Billy Ray’s guilt-trip tactics are the means to a worthwhile end. The end being the hopeful cancellation of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s wedding plans. I think the general consensus is that a 19-year-old girl and a 23-year-old boy, even in the best of situations, would be better off waiting at least a few more years before tying the knot. There’s no pregnancy involved, so why the big hurry?

A glance back through our archives reveals that Billy Ray was once a big fan of Liam’s relationship with his daughter, and the Enquirer once printed a story that claimed Billy Ray was all for Miley heading to the altar as early as age 18. When Miley and Liam briefly broke up early in their relationship, Billy Ray was even said to have begged” Liam to come back and even live with Miley, who was 17 at the time because he liked the thought of Liam keeping Miley out of trouble and acting as a “babysitter” of sorts. Now the Enquirer has changed its tune and claims that Billy Ray is thinking differently lately because he’s so upset that Liam (allegedly) cheated with January Jones and humilated Miley in the process. It further follows that Billy Ray is refusing to attend Miley and Liam’s wedding if they go ahead with it. Will the mullet get his way?

Billy Ray Cyrus

Billy Ray Cyrus is begging his wild-child daughter Miley to call off her upcoming wedding to Aussie hunk Liam Hemsworth.

Amid reports that the Hunger Games hottie chated on Miley — and fears that Liam used the former Disney star to boost his career — the “Achy Breaky Heart” crooner has launched a campaign to convince his daughter to dump Liam before she gets her heart broken.

“Billy Ray sees the writing on the wall,” said a source. “He’s fed up with the disrespectful way Liam treats Miley by sonstantly flirting with other women in front of her. “He’s had deep reservations about Liam from the start, because when Miley hooked up with him, she was the big star and he was an unknown in America.

“Billy Ray thinks Liam hitched his wagon to Miley and used her fame to turn himself into an A-list actor. He feels so strongly about it that he told Miley he’ll boycott the wedding if she goes forward with it.”

Miley, 20, and Liam, 23, who first began dating in 2009, hit a rough patch in recent weeks after he was caught getting cozy with “Mad Men” siren January Jones at a pre-Oscars party in late February. Rumors about an impending split began to swirl in early March when Liam jetted off to his home turn in Australia before continuing onto Asia for work projects.

Meanwhile, Miley was spotted without her engagement ring but squashed breakup reports by claiming that the sparkler was getting repaired. Then, on March 20, Miley tweeted a photo of herself wearing the ring — and Liam wass potted back at LAX.

But even if Miley and Liam are patching things up, the same can’t be said for the tense relationship between her fiance and father. “Billy Ray won’t stand by and watch Miley get her heart broken,” added the source. “He’s praying she takes his advice before she really gets hurt.”

[From Enquirer, print edition, April 8, 2013]

In related news, this week’s issue of Star implies that Liam wanted to postpone wedding plans while he and Miley try and work it out, but “she won’t take no for an answer.” Gahhhh. These two just need to, you know, not get married. I know (from experience) that it’s difficult to convince young people not to rush into married life, but I can also attest (from experience) that a short marriage is much worse than no marriage at all. Cool your jets, Miley.

Here are some “vintage” photos of Miley and Liam in 2010. I hate to say it, but at that point, Liam looked like he was more into the paps than his girlfriend.

    Agreed…”cool your jets, Miley”, or as Billy Ray would say “Hold yer horses!”

  2. marie says:

    wow, the Enquirer needs to employ spell check.

    Miley needs to call the wedding off and move on, or wait, when is her new music supposed to be released? maybe she’ll end it then. Either way, neither one of them are ready for marriage.

  3. Hautie says:

    Okay, I couldn’t see anything but that hair do of Billy Ray’s.

    What exactly is sprouting from the front of his forehead? It looks like it got scared and puffed up!

    Miley will marry this boy, if she can get him to the altar. Simply because she sooner die than be dumped. And have the tabloids gloat about it.

    (Why not just walk away with your pride intact?)

      Holy crap that was funny !

    • Belle Epoch says:

      HAHAHAHAHA !!! His forehead got scared and puffed up! So brilliant.

      His picture made me laugh but that comment did me in. These folks sure are klassy!

    Whoa Elvis!

  5. Liv says:

    I’m willing to buy most of the story but this:

    “… and used her fame to turn himself into an A-list actor”.

    He probably profited by her early success, but there’s no way she got him his roles. Ridiculous.

  6. Eve says:

    Thought that was George Michael (circa album “Faith”).

  7. RuddyZooKeeper says:

    Are those Uggs, Billy Ray?
    I don’t quite believe BRC threw out the “Won’t-Walk-You-Down-The-Aisle” ultimatum. But it doesn’t really work anyway. Neither of my parents attended my wedding, and though I should have backed out I just dug in my heels. You know everything when you’re somewhere between 17 and 23.
    And seeing her with hair again is unnerving.

    Are those Uggs……….

    Why is Miley so dead set on this relationship? Does she think Liam is going to be a big A-list deal like his brother & she likes the idea of them being this super duper hollywood power couple? Maybe if he sticks to big & dumb action flicks like his brother cause dude can’t act worth a damn.

  10. MonicaQ says:

    I’m going to say I’m terrible at talking about young people relationships–I met my husband at sixteen and we’ve been together since but didn’t get married until we were 25. But…I would wait. I know she loves him and all of that but there’s a lot going on. Maybe go to school a little bit? Make a new album?

    And if he *did* cheated, well…that’s something they are obviously going to have to work on. Yeesh.

  11. Nan209 says:

    I totally thought he was George Michael.

  12. Hakura says:

    If Liam did cheat, it obviously gives off discomfort with the idea of getting married. BRC should’ve never seen Liam as a ‘babysitter’ or to ‘tame’ her.

    Miley may have been a former Disney child star, who moved on to do music, but Britney she ain’t, including the boyfriend babysitter concept.

    While I’m sure he could no longer support the relationship since as of late, & may have made this threat, I just can’t see him going through with it.

    • gie says:

      Assuming,Liam Hemsworth,doesn’t want to go through the wedding, the big question is, why did he comeback to Miley Cyrus & wanted to patch things up with Miley this time?He could have walk away as simple as that.Nobody can force anybody, if they really doesn’t want to marry somebody anyway.So, one thing for sure Liam hemsworth cannot, cannot walk away from MILEY CYRUS as well as MILEY herself,woahhhh…DESTINY FOR SURE,is proving very hard to scape… AMEN..

      • Hakura says:

        I never said that showing discomfort at the idea of marriage meant that he didn’t want to be with Miley, or didn’t care about her.

        I just get the impression that the rush down the aisle is being pushed for from one side of their relationship, as opposed to both (the way it should be). Marriages are hard enough on their own, even harder when both parties might not be *totally* ready for it.

  13. ramie says:

    Big deal. No Billy Ray mullet at the wedding?

  14. Minky says:

    Yeah, they need to wait or call it off if he really cheated! I was in such a hurry to marry the first time around (at 20), that even despite HUGE red flags and my family and friends encouraging me to wait, I did it anyway. Four years and whole lot of tears and frustration, we divorced. If we had waited even just another year, it would’ve made a huge difference. 20 is so young, and so is 23 (my ex was 24 when we married)!!! Even now, facing my second marriage in less than 6 months at 31, it’s taken me four years to even feel like I was ready again or that our relationship was ready!! I’m all for taking time and building foundations these days. LOL… Hard won lesson!

  15. Talie says:

    Did he use her for fame…maybe, initially. I think he probably fell for her at some point, but she should explore more. He’s not at his brother’s level.

  16. blaize says:

    She looked so much better with her hair like this. Her new haircut and the color don’t suit her.

    I think some people can handle marrying at 23, 20, or even 19. One of my best friends married her boyfriend a few months after she graduated high school (they had known eachother since they were preteens)and they’re doing great. But Miley Cyrus doesn’t seem mature enough for marriage yet. She probably won’t be until she’s at least 25.

  17. gie says:

    LIAM HEMSWORTH will have so much to prove at this point,if he really loves MILEY and is a cheater& cannot contain himself, then he should step back from MILEY himself, if he truly loves her,because even if he hides his cheating ways, he should remember,he cannot hide from those eyes in hollywood, will be expose one way or another& will lost face & dignity all over again,as he already is at this point.

  18. K-rock says:

    Is he wearing Uggs? lol

  19. joe says:

    He let his daughter date a 20-year old man when she was only 15 and even let the guy move into their house so why does he suddenly care?

  20. Rob says:


    I’ve been against Liam hemsworth since The very beginning…of all this “Drama”

    Billy ray has a good–judgement when if comes to miley
