Billy Ray Cyrus Files for Divorce From Firerose After 7 Months of Marriage

Billy Ray Cyrus has filed for divorce from Firerose, according to court documents obtained by People. The couple was married for seven months.

The 62-year-old country star made his filing in Nashville on May 22, citing “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct.” He is also seeking an annulment on the grounds of fraud.


Billy Ray’s representatives declined Billboard’s request for comment.

The Hannah Montana alum and 37-year-old Australian singer — whose real name is Johanna Rose Hodges — first started dating in 2022 after years of friendship. They got engaged later that year and tied the knot in October 2023.

“10/10/23 will always be the beautiful, joyous day that our two souls united as one in holy matrimony,” they wrote in a joint statement at the time. “It was the most perfect, ethereal celebration of love we could have ever imagined. For both of us to hear the preacher say, ‘Billy Ray and Firerose Cyrus… I now pronounce you husband and wife’ that was the sacred moment our new forever began. Long Live Love!”

News of their split comes just a few days after Billy Ray made a heartfelt post about his daughter Miley, whom he shares with his second wife, Tish Cyrus, along with 30-year-old son Braison and 24-year-old daughter Noah. Uploading a throwback photo of the 31-year-old “Flowers” singer as a toddler, he wrote: “I’m incredibly proud of her. She’s a survivor and a true artist. She learned early on to love and appreciate the fans who make everything possible. We both cherish the connection we have with our fans and are grateful for every single one of you!”

The post came as a surprise to some fans, as rumors of a rift in the Cyrus family had been circulating since Billy Ray and Tish legally separated in 2022 after nearly 30 years of marriage. Said rumors were fueled by Miley when she noticeably didn’t thank her dad in her Grammys acceptance speech for record of the year this year, simply shouting out her mom and sister Brandi before joking, “I don’t think I forgot anyone, but I might have forgotten underwear.”

Before wedding Tish in 1993, Billy Ray was married to Cindy Smith from 1986 to 1991.
