Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus has filed for divorce from his wife of 7 months, Firerose (Johanna Rose Hodges). The couple tied the knot in October 2023 but has now decided to end their marriage.

The court documents cite irreconcilable differences and inappropriate marital conduct as the reasons for the divorce. Additionally, Cyrus is seeking an annulment on the basis of fraud, although the specific details of the fraud claim are not known.

It is worth noting that the couple no longer follows each other on Instagram, which has further fueled speculation about their separation.

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.

This is such surprising news considering just over a month ago, Firerose was posting to celebrate their 6 months of marriage. What do you think of this update? Let us know in the comments.
