Can it be true? Are Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus filing for divorce? People is reporting that Miley’s mom and dad are achey-breakin’ up after 17 years of marriage and five children.

“It’s a very difficult time for our family,” they said in a press release, “and we are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.” The reason for the split is cited as “irreconcilable differences” according to the documents submitted yesterday to a Tennessee court.

October has proved a brutal month for celebrity relationships, with Christina and Jordan, David and Courtney, Blake and Penn, and Carey and Shia all calling it quits. More details to follow.
