“Everything happens for a reason and the main thing for me, as Miley’s daddy, is she’s happy,” Billy Ray Cyrus said in an Entertainment Tonight interview.

“All I know for sure is I heard my daughter say today she’s the happiest she’s ever been in her life immediately following (the breakup),” he added. “That’s when I saw Miley being so happy.”

On Monday, the 20-year-old singer discussed about the feud with Sinead O’Connor whom she admires and calls an inspiration.

“I think she’s an incredible artist and an awesome songwriter and I was really inspired by her for my ‘Wrecking Ball’ video … I don’t know how someone can start a fight with somebody that’s saying, ‘Hey, I really respect you and I really like what you did.’”

Her father Billy Ray also took to Twitter to express his support, saying, “Wanna know how I feel as a Father?Just heard my daughter say@MileyCyrus. “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my whole life.’All I ever wanted.”
