As first reported by TMZ, Billy Ray Cyrus has filed for divorce and is seeking an annulment from his third wife Firerose after seven months of marriage.

PEOPLE reported that the 62-year-old Cyrus filed for divorce from the 37-year-old Firerose (legal name Johanna Rose Hodges) in a Tennessee court on May 22, citing irreconcilable differences and “inappropriate marital conduct.” Cyrus is also seeking an annulment due to fraud on Hodges’ part, saying in the filing that he would not have married Hodges “had he known” about the alleged fraud. TMZ stated that Cyrus gave Firerose a deadline of May 24 to vacate their house and agreed to pay her $5,000 per month to obtain suitable housing for the following 90 days, or until the divorce is finalized. The filing gives no further details on the alleged inappropriate conduct of fraud, but says each should be able to keep property that they own separately.

Cyrus has been married twice previously, including ex-wife Tish Cyrus whom were divorced in 2022 after nearly three decades together.  Billy Ray and Tish shares five children, including musicians Miley Cyrus and Noah Cyrus, Braison Cyrus, and he legally adopted Tish Cyrus’s two children, Brandi and Trace. Cyrus also has a son, Christopher, with a previous partner.

Neither Hodges nor Cyrus has commented on the divorce via their social media accounts, while representatives for Cyrus and Hodges did not immediately return requests for comment.
