"Miley is upset," an insider close to the family said. "She is very hurt and angry."
People said Saturday that while the 18-year-old entertainer has yet to comment on the remarks made by her country music star-father, Billy Ray Cyrus, she has "seemed stressed."
"She tries to hide it behind a constant smile," the source said.
Billy Ray said recently his little girl's remarkable ascent had taken a toll on their family life. A friend of his told People that going public may have been his last-ditch effort to communicate his concerns to his daughter.
