Miley Cyrus’ parents Billy Ray and Tish have called off their divorce. Tish h had filed papers asking for a legal separation in June citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for their split, but now the couple have decided to save their marriage after dealing with their issues in couples therapy.
Tish revealed she and Billy Ray are giving their relationship another chance to E!’s Ken Baker, who revealed: ‘I spoke to Tish and she told me they both woke up and realized they love each other and decided they want to stay together. They recently went into couples therapy, something they hadn’t done in 22 years of being together, and it’s brought them closer together and really opened up their communication in amazing ways.’
Tish has been ‘energized’ by the therapy sessions and is delighted she and Billy Ray, who have been married for 19 years, are staying together. Ken added: ‘She also said marriage can be really hard .. and admitted they’ve had rough times. But they both realized they didn’t want to be another statistic and want to make it work.
They went into the therapy with the goal of divorcing in a way that was healthy for the children, but ended up coming out of it with the realization that they in fact want to stay together. Tish sounds happy and energized about having this fresh start.’
This is the second time the couple have called off a divorce. In March 2011, Billy Ray filed for a legal separation but changed his mind after deciding he didn’t want to break up his family. His reason at the time was that Miley’s fame had put too much stress on the family.
