Billy Ray Cyrus, erstwhile country star and stage dad to the rapidly maturing Miley Cyrus, filed for divorce from Tish, his wife of 17 years, on Tuesday.

"As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family," the couple wrote in a joint statement. "We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."

Cyrus listed "irreconcilable differences" and not "achy breaky heart" as the reason for the divorce.

According to Us, he's asked for joint custody of Miley (17), Braison (16) and Noah (10).

Re "the rapidly maturing Miley Cyrus," we see her taking some of the same steps as Brit-brit. Wouldn't call increasing skanquosity "maturing."

I believe the "maturing" comment was a well-delivered bit of satire from the ladies of Celebritology, reddragon1.

I heard there was an irreconcilable difference over whether "skank" or "skanque" was the best career trajectory.

Egads. This means he's going to be out in the singles market.

With that hair, those sunglasses, that chin hair thing, those necklaces....

LizJen - please make a vow to not cover the BRC dating scene or at least give us ample warning so we don't accidentally read it.
