NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Billy Ray Cyrus says the Disney TV show “Hannah Montana” destroyed his family, causing his divorce and sending daughter Miley Cyrus spinning out of control.
In an interview with GQ Magazine, the country star says he “would erase it all in a second” if it would bring his family together again.
Cyrus says his daughter is in a downward spiral. That’s why he refused to attend her 18th birthday party in December, saying “it was wrong” to have it in a bar. Video of Miley smoking a bong later surfaced.
Her father compares her current path with those of stars whose lives ended tragically, including Kurt Cobain, Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson.
