LOS ANGELES, March 21 (UPI) -- Tish Cyrus, the wife of U.S. singer Billy Ray Cyrus and mother of pop star Miley Cyrus, says her family weathered a "huge storm" but is stronger for it.
Billy Ray recently announced he and Tish had canceled divorce proceedings and reconciled. The couple have been married for 17 years, but had filed for divorce a few months ago.
Billy Ray said in interviews the fame brought on by "Hannah Montana," the TV show he co-starred in with Miley, put tremendous strain on the family, and he wished he and his daughter never got involved with it. Miley, 18, also has earned criticism for her sexy image and hard-partying ways.
"Big thanks to all of our family, friends, and fans who have kept us in their thoughts and prayers," People.com said Tish wrote on her Facebook page Monday. "I feel so blessed to have so much support from all of you. ... Our family weathered a huge storm and I feel we are stronger than we have ever been. Much love to all of you guys! You're the best."
