Considering she’s just twenty-nine years old, it’s pretty remarkable everything the star has done.

The then thirteen-year-old starred alongside her country singer dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, as Hannah Montana in the show which debuted in 2006.

Such a hit that it even took to the box office, seeing Cyrus star alongside her Hannah Montana cast in Hannah Montana: The Movie.

The singer also released 2 albums while starring in Hannah Montana – producing several singles, including the popular 2009 hits ‘Party in the U.S.A.’, and ‘The Climb’.

But much to fans’ disappointment, filming stopped in late 2010.

In the same year that we waved goodbye to Hannah Montana, the star began her on-off relationship with Liam Hemsworth.

The 2 first met on the set of Nicholas Sparks’s film, The Last Song, in 2009, where they starred opposite each other as love interests.

And in 2012, we well and truly kissed goodbye to Hannah Montana when the star debuted her bleach blonde pixie cut, marking a change of direction for the singer…

The star’s single, ‘We Can’t Stop’ from her fourth album Bangerz, showed us a different side to the then twenty-one-year-old.

Around this time, the star attracted headlines for her rebellious antics, too.

And many dubbed her as just another Disney star who had gone off the rails.

But she managed to survive it all…

And in recent years, Miley has continued to make music and tour the world.

But recently, some sad news has emerged from within Miley’s family.

Miley’s mom, Tish, filed for divorce from Billy Ray Cyrus after almost thirty years of marriage.

According to TMZ, Tish Cyrus filed the documents for divorce in Tennessee back in April.

The outlet reports that the pair had been married for almost thirty years and have 5 children together.

Court documents obtained by TMZ reportedly state that Tish and Billy Ray haven’t lived together in more than 2 years.

The reason for the split is reportedly listed as “irreconcilable differences.”

For many fans, the news of their divorce has not come as a shock as they have filed for divorce twice previously in 2010 and 2013, though both times it was called off.

The outlet reports that Tish has asked for marital assets to be distributed equally.

And now, just months after their split was reported, Billy Ray Cyrus is engaged.

Fans can’t believe the news…

One Twitter user wrote: “Billy Ray Cyrus getting engaged to a girl a year younger than Miley is gross. Why is it so hard for men to date people closer to their age.”

Another commented: “Wait, so Billy Ray Cyrus is 61 and engaged to a woman two years younger than Miley? What is up with straight men this month? Are you okay? Can you like not be weird for just a second?”

That’s right, the sixty-one-year-old country singer is engaged to twenty-eight-year-old Australian singer, Firerose.

The pair met while they were working on the single ‘New Day’ last year, and they clearly hit it off, as she has recently been spotted wearing a huge diamond ring after they reportedly got engaged.

However, their relationship hasn’t gone down well with Miley, not only have the father-daughter-duo unfollowed each other on Instagram, but she is also allegedly not on good terms with her father.

A source told The Sun: “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. There were words exchanged over what ­happened towards the end of Billy and Tish’s marriage, and since then, but they clearly see things very differently.”

They continued: “Neither of them is particularly eager to make amends right now without an apology. 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.”
