Miley Cyrus’ dad has called off proceedings to end his 17-year marriage.
In an interview on The View scheduled to air on Friday he said he has decided to try to mend things with wife Tish.
“I’ve dropped the divorce,” Cyrus said in the interview. “I want to put my family back together … Things are the best they’ve ever been.”
In October, Billy Ray and Tish issued a joint statement announcing plans to end their 17-year marriage.
Last month, the 49-year-old singer made headlines by telling GQ magazine that Hannah Montana had destroyed his family and said he felt Miley surrounded herself with people that put her “in a great deal of danger.”
As for how things are gong between him and his wife now, he said, “You know what? Communication I think is one of the biggest problems that we as human beings have in this whole world, and I think for the first time me and my entire family are finally communicating with each other in a way that, it’s been quite some time… and to answer your question, things are really the best they’ve ever been.”
His relationship with his daughter is also improving: “I feel like I kind of got my Miley back in a way. I feel like we are the daddy and the daughter that we were before Hannah Montana happened.”
However, he still thinks Miley’s celebrity status can pose dangers for his family: “I love Hannah Montana. I love Disney. That didn’t tear my family apart,” said Cyrus. “Now fame, fame is a different animal, you’ve got to be careful with that thing because it can… (pause)… all things considered, hey, it’s all good.”
