Since my report several days ago that the divorce between Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus is “on hold,” and the November 12 report about bad behaving Miley Cyrus – who may have triggered the divorce – one major event took place in mid-December that may have been a wake-up call for Billy Ray and Tish – Miley’s bong smoking. If the divorce is off, this behavior of Miley’s can be the key reason.
A marijuana high
While the media called the substance in the bong smoking video “salvia”, in a story that is being widely reported Little House on the Praire’s former child star is claiming that Miley Cyrus in the bong video was on a marijuana high. Here is the original interview by David Moye Melissa Gilbert: ‘Miley Wanted to Get Caught’ – AOL News
No papers served
Parents can oftentimes excuse bad behavior as “acting out” but drug use is more serious. And that may have been the trigger for a possible reconciliation between Tish and Billy Ray. It is a divorce reported to have been fueled by a disagreement in parenting styles and Miley’s bad behavior. Despite claims that the divorce is still on here is the report:
If Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus reconcile, that would be a terrific New Year 2011 story. The two were seen dining together and smiling. That is not so unusual, lots of civilized couples meet on neutral territory to try to talk things over. But new reports are swirling that there are still no divorce papers! Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Back Together
I reported this back on December 12th and new reports from The Star are claiming that there are still no papers signed.
“Billy Ray Cyrus filed for divorce from Tish Cyrus Oct. 26 — that’s 38 days ago. But by Tennessee law, Tish has to be served with the papers within 30 days — and we’ve learned she hasn’t been served yet, which could mean that the couple has decided to stay together.
“Clerks at the Chancery Court Of Williamson County tell us that once the divorce is filed, there is a strict 30-day time period from day of filing for the respondent/defendant (in this case, Tish) to be served with divorce papers.
As of today (Dec. 3), it’s been 38 days. Two clerks tellHollywoodLife.com that there is no notice of service to Tish on file at the court and that when one party isn’t served within 30 days, it typically means the divorce is off. . . ” (see links at end)
A difference in parenting styles and a blow-up
Here is my report from November 12th, So is the gossip we have been hearing about Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus true? There seems to have been a big split in parenting styles which may account for the rumored screaming matches between the loving public couple and the private screamers. The National Enquirer seems to have this story down.
“Out of his mind with rage, BILLY RAY CYRUS furiously tried to kick down the door of his estranged wife TISH‘s bedroom as she sobbed uncontrollably and one of their children cowered, terrified, nearby.
“That was the explosive scene during a brutal fight at the couple’s Los Angeles home that led to the Cyrus’ ugly $100 million divorce battle, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively. . . .
“The confrontation erupted after Billy Ray tried to ground his superstar daughter MiILEY for talking back to him, and Tish intervened, the insider continued.
After learning that Tish had undermined him and given Miley permission to go out, Billy Ray went berserk with anger.
“You let everyone run wild when I’m not here!

Given what has transpired with the family, including infidelity accusations between Tish and Bret Michaels, perhaps the family has received the warning it needs to regroup.
