Miley Cyrus was understandably less than thrilled when her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, told GQ magazine that he blames Hannah Montana for destroying the Cyrus fam. Now, according to PopEater, the 18-year-old singer/actress has demanded that Billy Ray withdraw from an upcoming appearance on The View, where he was reportedly planning to reveal even more about the famous family's troubles.
"When Miley found out her father was scheduled to appear on The View on Wednesday she went nuts," the source claims. "Only last week, Billy shot his mouth off in GQ, and now he planned to sit down with (Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg) and talk more crap about his family. No way would Miley or her team let that happen."
In the wake of Miley's salvia-smoking scandal, Billy Ray tweeted that he "had no idea" and was "so sad." Miley has admitted she "made a mistake" experimenting with drugs, but that didn't stop the teen idol's reputation from taking quite a hit. The studio producing her upcoming movie LOL was so worried about the bong controversy that they demanded some "editing magic" be performed to completely remove Miley from a pot-smoking scene in the film. We don't blame Cyrus (or her "handlers") for not wanting any more bad press surrounding the starlet!
According to PopEater's source: "At first Miley defended her dad, wanting to believe he had been tricked into saying bad things (in the GQ interview). Miley truly wanted to give her father the benefit of the doubt, goodness knows she's said things she wishes she could take back. But after she found out about his media trip to New York, no more excuses could be made."
Billy Ray reportedly listened to his daughter and canceled his talk-show appearance -- so no more Cyrus family secrets will be released to the press (at least for now). We sure hope Miley and her dad can work things out, or at least keep the personal drama behind closed doors!
Do you think Miley is right to be upset about her dad talking about family problems in the press? Chime in below!
