Sources tell me Miley Cyrus blames her success for her parents’ divorce and would give up every dollar and gold record she ever earned if dad Billy Ray and mom Tish would agree to give marriage one more try.
“Both parents have been equally involved in making their daughter a superstar,” a friend of the teen singer tells me. “And now that they have achieved their goal they have nothing to work towards anymore and nothing to keep them together.”
Insiders tell me Billy Ray and Tish have gone from being loving partners and parents to business managers, spending all their time and attention on their daughter’s career and often forgetting to focus on each other.
“Every marriage struggles when a child leaves home and the relationship gets re-examined, but add on top of that that every second of the past decade Billy Ray and Tish have spent building a star together, they have forgotten to make time for each other,” a music executive tells me. “It’s heartbreaking. You would think that someone like Miley has everything in the world, but I guarantee she would give it all up in a second if it kept her family together. I’m sure when she blows out her birthday candles in a few weeks her wish will be for mom and dad, not her career.”
