Leticia Jean "Tish" Cyrus (née Finley; born May 15, 1967) is an American actress and producer. She produced the films The Last Song, LOL and So Undercover, and is a manager for her daughter Miley Cyrus.[1]

Career[edit]

Cyrus has produced films starring her daughter Miley Cyrus. She was the executive producer of The Last Song, based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks. She starred in the TV show Cyrus vs. Cyrus: Design and Conquer, which launched on May 25, 2017.

Personal life[edit]

Cyrus, Finley at the time, had two children, Brandi and Trace, before marrying Billy Ray Cyrus. Both were adopted by Billy Ray after their marriage.

In 1992, Tish gave birth to her third child, Miley Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus), with Billy Ray Cyrus. On December 28, 1993, Billy Ray and Tish wed. She had her fourth child, Braison Chance Cyrus, in 1994. In 2000, she gave birth to her fifth child, Noah Lindsey Cyrus.

The family lived on a 500-acre (2.0 km2) farm in Thompson's Station,[2] outside of Nashville, Tennessee, before moving to Los Angeles for the filming of Hannah Montana.

On October 26, 2010, Billy Ray Cyrus filed for divorce from Tish in Tennessee, citing irreconcilable differences.[3] In a statement made to People the next day announcing the split, Billy and Tish said, "As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family... We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."[4] However, on March 18, 2011, Billy Ray announced on The View that he had dropped the divorce.[5] On June 13, 2013, Tish filed for divorce from Billy Ray after 19 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.[6] However, it was reported in July 2013 that they had gone to couples therapy and rekindled their relationship.[7]

Cannabis advocacy[edit]

Cyrus reintroduced her daughter, Miley, to cannabis after quitting upon the release of the album Younger Now. During an interview with Andy Cohen, Miley stated that her mother "smokes a lot of weed" and threatened to quit as her manager and start a cannabis company.[8][9][10]
