Billy Ray Cyrus on why he’s scared for Miley & why he skipped her birthday

Billy Ray Cyrus has admitted that he is scared for his daughter Miley Cyrus.

Billy Ray is worried that his daughter, who’s recent controversial behaviours includes smoking salvia from a bong, is being put in danger by the people around her.

“Every time the train went off the track… her people, or as they say in today’s news, her handlers, every time they’d put the blame on me… I took it because I’m her daddy… OK, nail me to the cross,” he said.

“I’m scared for her. She’s got a lot of people around her that’s putting her in a great deal of danger. I want to get her sheltered from the storm.”

Billy Ray, who is currently in the process of divorcing Miley’s mum Tish Cyrus, says he kept away from Miley’s 18th birthday party, because it was held at a bar and Miley is under-age.

“You know why I didn’t go? Because they were having it in a bar,” he said. “It was wrong. It was for 21 years old and up… all them people, they all wanted me to fly out so that then when all the bad press came they could say, ‘Daddy endorsed this stuff.’ I started realizing I’m being used.”

“After the incident with the legal high, her handlers told me it was none of my business.”

“I should have said, ‘Enough is enough — it’s getting dangerous and somebody’s going to get hurt’…”

“Honestly, I didn’t know the ball was out of bounds until it was way up in the stands somewhere.”
