INDIANAPOLIS (LALATE) – Billy Ray Cyrus sung the National Anthem (photo above) for NFL’s Monday Night Football this evening, less than one week after his divorce from wife Leticia Finley (Tish) Cyrus. Billy Ray Cyrus and daughter Miley, with the exception of one brief news statement, have yet to comment about the divorce. But tonight, that didn’t stop Bill Ray Cyrus heading to Indianapolis to headline tonight’s Texans vs Colts game. Reaction on Twitter was mixed, one fan writing “Billy Ray Cyrus singing the National Anthem…does that mean “Acky Breaky Heart” at halftime?”
Cyrus is divorcing Tish, his second wife, after 17 years. The couple confirmed their divorce last week having married less roughly 1 year after Cyrus’ first divorce to Cindy Smith. And while the divorce news was confirmed last week, the couple’s split “was a long time coming” claimed E! News at the time.
Just in September, Tish Cyrus made news for seeking to change her name just like Miley did earlier. The pop singer had changed to Miley Cyrus from Destiny Hope Cyrus; Miley’s mom told news at the time she wanted to change her name from Leticia Finley Cyrus to Tish Cyrus.
And while Billy Ray took to the field tonight, his divorce case will be played out in Tennessee. His daughter Cyrus turns 18 on November 23. Miley along with Braison, 16, and Noah, 10, are currently of minor age are hence subject, at least currently, of custody claims in the divorce.
