Miley Cyrus' parents file for divorce.

After 17 years of marriage, Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus have decided to call it quits.  The couple filed divorce papers in Tennessee yesterday morning, citing "irreconcilable differences".  They released a joint statement: "As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family. We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."

Tish and Billy Ray share five children together: Trace, Brandi, Miley, Braison, and Noah.  Billy Ray also has another son, Christopher from a previous relationship.

This is one Hollywood split that shocked me; they seemed like such a tight-knit family.
