Billy Ray Cyrus, 62, files for divorce from Firerose, 37, after 7 months of marriage – cites fraud as one reason

Billy Ray Cyrus’ marriage to his much younger wife Firerose took the internet by storm.

Now, just 7 months after they said ‘I do,’ it seems like the couple is calling it quits.

Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus has filed for divorce from his wife of 7 months, Firerose.

The couple tied the knot in October 2023, and now the 62-year-old has filed for divorce from Firerose, whose real name is Johanna Rose Hodges.

Billy Ray Cyrus Claims Fraud in Request For Annulment From Firerose

The documents submitted to the court cite irreconcilable differences and inappropriate marital conduct as the reasons for divorce. Infact, Cyrus is seeking to get an annulment on the marriage on the basis of fraud. There are currently no details on what he means by ‘fraud.’

It was noted by that the couple does not follow one another on Instagram anymore either.

TMZ was the first outlet to break the news of the impending divorce.

The couple have previously talked about how they know one another. They shared how they were friends for years before they began to write songs together during the COVID-19 pandemic. They only began dating in 2022 and subsequently became engaged and finally tied the knot in October 2023.

“10/10/23 will always be the beautiful, joyous day that our two souls united as one in holy matrimony,” they wrote in a joint post on social media at the time. “It was the most perfect, ethereal celebration of love we could have ever imagined.”

The couple has released songs together, which include, “New Day,” “Time,” “Plans” and “After the Storm.” The couple talked about the track “After the Storm” as being a hopeful song which resonated with them personally. Cyrus even said it was a “powerful and timely” song.

At the time, Firerose said of it, “Only by the grace of God did I survive my darkest nights. There is so much truth in these lyrics and it’s my purpose to help others find strength in their toughest hours.”

In August 2023, the couple even appeared on Good Morning America to perform their song ‘Plans’ together.


“We’re kind of like… It’s a peanut butter and jelly,” Cyrus mused of their relationship previously. “I’m a left-handed singer-songwriter from Flatwoods, Kentucky, and she’s a trained orchestral musician…”

Firerose added to his sentiment saying, “It has been a beautiful whirlwind and I’m just so grateful that I get to live my dreams every day with the love of my life.”

In February this year, Cyrus celebrated his wife’s birthday by posting about her and writing that she is the “beautiful love of my life.”

Firerose also marked their six-month wedding anniversary in just April this year by posting a picture from their wedding and writing in the caption, “6 months ago I married this man. 🤍 Life isn’t always easy… but it sure helps when your husband’s also your best friend. Thank you Lord!”

This is not Cyrus’ first marriage. He was previously famously married to Tish Cyrus for 28 years. He shares five children with his ex-wife which include Miley Cyrus, Noah Cyrus, Brandi Cyrus and sons Trace and Braison Cyrus.

Billy Ray also has another older son, Christopher Cody with Kristen Luckey, who he was in a relationship with before he met Tish.
