Seems like this on-again-off-again marriage thing runs in the Cyrus family.
Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus have officially decided to give their relationship another try…again. The couple who married in 1993, ran into a rough patch in June 2013 when Tish Cyrus filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Ken Baker, E! News correspondent and family friend of the Cyrus’, says Billy and Tish recently “went into couples therapy, something they hadn’t done in 22 years, and it’s brought them closer together and really opened up their communication.”
The original intent of their couples therapy was to find a healthy way of divorcing for the sake of their three children, Miley Rae, Braison Chance and Noah Lindsey. Instead, Billy and Tish sprang out of therapy “with the realization that they in fact want to stay together.”
Tish also told Baker that “marriage can be really hard, especially after 22 years in the entertainment business, and admitted they’ve had rough times.”
…Rough times referring to the couple betrayals and infidelity rumors, which have sparked a lot of media attention. Billy Ray has been connected to actress Dylis Croman whom he spent alot of time with last winter on and off the stage of Broadway’s “Chicago.” Tish was also rumored to have had an affair with rocker Bret Michaels. Despite the gossip, these claims are only speculation concidering both Tish and Billy have denied having any affairs. However, ITM will remind you all that Miley took to Twitter in July threatening her dad by posting a picture of Croman captioned “Tell the truth or I’ll tell it for you.” Just saying…infer what you wish.
But this is not the first time the couple threatened to divorce. Back in October 2010 Billy Ray filed for divorce saying Miley’s popularity took a toll on their marriage. Then during his March 2011 appearance on “The View”, Billy announced that he was cancelling his petition to divorce. Hmmm…Deja vu much?
Tish and Billy “didn’t want to be another statistic and want to make it work,” says Baker. And making it work is exactly what it looks like they’re trying to do.
Last week, Billy and Tish were seen holding hands and laughing at the Malibu Beach Pier. In fact, just yesterday Tish posted an Instagram pic of herself and Billy getting cozy at a restaurant on a “Date Night.”
