Pop Culture

The love affair between Billy Ray Cyrus and Firerose has fizzled out.

Divorce papers filed by Cyrus, 62, in Nashville, Tenn., claim he separated from singer Firerose, 36, on May 22. According to the court documents obtained by People magazine, the Achy Breaky Heart singer cited irreconcilable differences and inappropriate marital conduct as the reason for divorce.

Cyrus told the court he is also seeking to annul the marriage on the grounds of fraud, the details of which are unclear.

The couple married in October 2023.

At the time, Cyrus called their wedding day “the most perfect, ethereal celebration of love we could have ever imagined.”

TMZ was first to report news of the divorce.

The outlet claimed Cyrus told the court he kicked Firerose out of their home on May 24. He is reportedly providing financial compensation for her temporary housing, at first US$500 a night for 10 days, then US$5,000 a month for 90 days, or until the divorce is finalized.
