Billy Ray Cyrus Drops the Divorce

Singer/actor Billy Ray Cyrus is mending his family relationships and has stopped the divorce proceedings with wife, Tish.

"I've dropped the divorce," Cyrus, 49, said during an interview on "The View" scheduled to air on Friday. "I want to put my family back together ... Things are the best they've ever been." He added, "I feel like I got my Miley back. I feel like we're the daddy and daughter we were before 'Hannah Montana.'"


In October, he and Tish issued a joint statement announcing plans to end their 17-year marriage, and in an interview with GQ magazine, Billy Ray said he thought the Disney Channel show ruined his family.

On "The View," Billy Ray said it wasn't "Hannah Montana" that hurt his family. "Fame did. Sometimes when you get in this ride," he said, "you feel like you're strapped to a rocket."
