Billy Ray Cyrus Seemingly Calls Estranged Wife Firerose a ‘Fraud’

Billy Ray Cyrus‘ divorce from Firerose continues to get uglier.

The “Achy Breaky Heart” singer took to his Instagram Stories on Sunday (June 30) to share a clip of the word “Fraud” over a flame with rose petals falling down the screen — seemingly an indirect reference to Firerose (real name Johanna Rose Hodges), though Cyrus has not confirmed whom he’s referring to. See his Story here before it disappears.

Cyrus originally filed for divorce on May 22, citing “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct.” The pair, who first started dating in 2022, were married for only seven months.

However, the divorce has since become increasingly turbulent. Cyrus filed an emergency motion on June 13 accusing Firerose of making nearly $100,000 in unauthorized “fraudulent” credit card charges and seeking a temporary restraining order to stop her.

Her attorneys said the accusations were “untrue,” and in a response filed on June 14, Firerose claimed that she had been the “victim of extreme verbal, emotional and psychological” abuse. She claimed that Cyrus had been “unpredictable and volatile” due to substance abuse.

A week later, Cyrus fired back with yet another filing on June 24 denying the accusations and instead accusing Firerose of abuse. “Defendant’s allegations of abuse were only made to sensationalize her false complaints by using the word abuse,” Cyrus’ lawyers write. “While the plaintiff would acknowledge that he was certainly vocal, frustrated and angry with the defendant in May 2024, it is the plaintiff who, in fact, has been abused. Not only verbally and emotionally by the defendant, but PHYSICALLY.”
