After 17 years of marriage, Miley Cyrus' parents, Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus, are divorcing. Divorce papers were filed Wednesday in Tennessee citing irreconcilable differences.

"As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family," they said in a statement (via PEOPLE).

"We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."

The couple have five children, including Miley. The pair began dating in 1991 and secretly married on December 28, 1993 at his home near Nashville, Tennessee.

Billy Ray has one previous marriage to Cindy Smith, a sales representative he met while touring in Ohio. They divorced in 1991.
