After 17 years of marriage, Miley Cyrus' parents, Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus, are divorcing.
"As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family," Billy Ray and Tish tell ET. "We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."
Divorce papers were filed Tuesday in Tennessee and, according to People, cite irreconcilable differences. Miley is one of their five children.
