Around five months and a few weeks after his wife of 28 years, Tish Cyrus, filed for divorce, it has been reported that Billy Ray Cyrus is “engaged” to singer Firerose.
According to The US Sun, the singer-songwriter, who performs under the name “Achy Breaky Heart,” is 61 years old and is “believed to be engaged” to the musician, who “was spotted with a huge diamond ring” recently. During the course of the previous year, Billy Ray and Firerose collaborated on a single that was titled “New Day.”
Both Billy and Firerose have Instagram accounts, and a number of the posts on both of those accounts show the two of them spending time together. It is unknown how old Billy and Firerose are.
Together with his wife Tish Cyrus, who is 55 years old, Billy Ray is the father of five children: daughters Brandi, 35, Miley, 29, and Noah, 22, and sons Trace, 33, and Braison, 28.
According to the outlet, the romantic relationship between Billy Ray and Miley could impact Billy Ray’s relationship with the superstar songstress. The outlet also reported that the father and daughter had unfollowed one another’s Instagram accounts in response to the growing tension between them.
“Confusion” regarding the timeline regarding when he and Firerose began seeing each other is adding to the tension that is already present. Tish stated in the documentation she submitted for their divorce earlier this year that she and Billy Ray had not lived together in more than two years.
‘Billy is happier than he has been in a long time with Firerose,’ an insider said. ‘There had been problems in his marriage for a while. He and Tish have been on and off for the best part of a decade, but things had been over for some time before the announcement in April.’
‘Not everyone sees his decision to move on so quickly in the same light though. There has been some tension with Miley, which is sad to see, but everyone is hopeful that they will be able to get over it soon enough. Thankfully his other kids do not have an issue with him and he has just collaborated with his youngest, Noah, on a song.’
According to a report from Main Street Nashville from the year 2021, Firerose was born and raised in Sydney, which is located in Australia. She moved to Los Angeles when she was 19 years old.
She revealed to the publication that she has, for a very long time, had a strong desire to sing and write songs.
‘I honestly can’t tell you where it came from but my spirit and my soul connected to the world through music and helped me make sense of everything,” she told the outlet. ‘I would get home from school and write a song about my day and thought that it was a normal thing to do.’
She claimed that she had been able to teach herself how to play the piano: ‘It just felt right to sit at the keys. I didn’t know the names of the chords but I felt it and I played by ear.’
Firerose disclosed her plans to relocate to the United States after completing her high schooling, saying, ‘There was this very strong calling in me that I felt my fate was to be in America.’
She stated that she and Billy Ray wrote their song “New Day via Zoom” during the pandemic, and they referred to it as ‘a song of hope for a new day for any single human who is searching, reaching, and praying for a new day.’
‘Here we are with this promise of a new day that we were all just praying for. We’re all ready to turn the page. I hope that the song that we wrote together can bring a glimmer of joy to peoples’ days even if it is not complete yet a new day for everyone.’
It has been reported by The Sun that Billy and his superstar daughter Miley got into some sort of argument and that things have gotten so bad between them that they have stopped communicating with each other and have even stopped following each other on Instagram. This is reportedly the result of a falling out that was caused by Billy’s new relationship.
‘Miley is all about peace but she didn’t agree with some things that her father has done. It has really escalated and they are not on good terms,’ a source told the publication.
‘There were words exchanged over what happened towards the end of Billy and Tish’s marriage,’ the insider maintained, and since then ‘they clearly see things very differently.’
Their relationship has deteriorated to the point where neither one of them is willing to be the one to make the first move and extend a peace offering to the other in the hopes that it will help them get along better.
‘Neither of them is particularly eager to make amends right now without an apology,’ that person close to the situation shared.
In point of fact, it appears that both the father and the daughter have their heels so firmly planted in the ground that they are unwilling to budge from their positions on the issue.
‘The rest of the family are hoping it will blow over soon and they will be able to make up, but Billy and Miley are both upset,’ the source explained.
