Country Singer Billy Ray Cyrus appears to have moved on from his ex-wife, Tish Cyrus. The singer and his new lover, Firerose, sparked engagement rumors earlier this month when the younger songstress flashed a sparkling huge diamond ring.
This new development comes only five months after Tish filed for divorce from the country star, citing “irreconcilable differences,” despite having shared 28 years of marriage.
However, the split between both parties didn’t sit well with their older daughter Miley Cyrus who seems to have taken a side that did not tilt towards her father.
Billy Ray Cyrus Gets Engaged To Younger Lover
According to The Sun, the 61-year-old singer got into a relationship with Australian-born singer Firerose, ignoring the ongoing feud he has with the “Wrecking Ball” singer after his separation from her mom Tish.
The new couple has now sparked engagement rumors after the young singer was spotted with a diamond ring posted on her Instagram on September 13. In the photos, Firerose sat on the edge of a stone bench with her left hand carefully placed on her lap, displaying the gigantic ring.
While it is unclear how long the pair dated before getting hitched, they earlier released a song together last year called “New Day” and performed as a duo, leading to a growing fondness for themselves.
However, this engagement is likely to deepen the friction that already exists between the father and daughter, who once shared a close bond and starred together in the Disney Channel’s mega-hit series “Hannah Montana.”
Following the divorce, the pair unfollowed each other on Instagram after a series of disagreements. There is uncertainty as to whether the “Old Town Road” star started seeing the Australian singer before announcing his separation from his ex-wife.
A family insider revealed that Billy and Miley argued over what happened towards the end of her parent’s marriage, and since then, they saw things differently.
In addition, the “Malibu” singer’s team declined to make any comments when asked about the engagement. Hopefully, the father-daughter duo can make amends and become a happy family once again.
About The ‘Busy Man’ Singer And His Ex-wife’s Third Divorce Saga
Back in April, Billy and Tish made headlines when announced their divorce from each other for the third time!
According to legal documents filed in Williamson County, Tennessee, obtained by The Blast, “The Last Song” actress cited “irreconcilable differences” and stated that she and the “Butterfly Fly Away” singer had not lived together for more than two years.
After getting married in 1993, they share five children comprising daughters Miley, 29, Noah, 22, Brandi, 34, and two sons, Trace, 33, and Braison, 27.
The “Achy Breaky Heart” icon initially filed for divorce in 2010 but later withdrew his petition five months later. At the time, he said in an interview, “I’ve dropped the divorce. I want to put my family back together. Things are the best they’ve ever been.”
Nonetheless, things took a different turn by 2013 after Tish filed for divorce in June of that year. The couple later said they were working on their relationship in couples therapy to help resolve some of their differences. They are now finally separated.

Following the turn of events, the singer/songwriter has allegedly completely cut ties with her estranged father due to the annulment of her parent’s marriage. As previously reported by The Blast, the duo had been on thin ice with each other before finally having a disagreement that dissolved their relationship.
A family friend spoke about the altercation that ensued between the once sweet pair to an online publication choosing to remain anonymous. The friend confirmed that the two stars hadn’t spoken since their fight.
“Miley has simply had enough of her Dad. Things were already tense between the “Prisoner” crooner and Billy Ray, but they had a blow-up this summer. There hasn’t been a word between them since,” claims the insider.
The source further explained, “Miley told him she always felt like he was trying to cash in on her fame, dating back to when she played Hannah Montana on TV. She believes Tish is the one who looks out for her. It’s a huge rift that may never heal!.”
