NEW YORK: Music icon Dolly Parton has reportedly stepped in to mediate the strained relationship between Billy Ray Cyrus and his daughter Miley Cyrus, urging the father-daughter duo to mend their differences.

According to sources close to Dolly Parton, the legendary singer is deeply troubled by the lack of communication between Billy Ray and Miley, whom she considers to be like family. Parton, who is Miley’s godmother, has expressed her disapproval of the rift and is determined to facilitate reconciliation.

“Dolly told Miley she admires her principles, but cutting her own father out of her life is a mistake she’s going to regret forever,” the insider revealed to the National Enquirer. Parton reportedly encouraged Billy Ray to extend an olive branch to Miley, emphasizing the importance of familial bonds.

Rift Between Billy Ray Cyrus and Miley Cyrus

The rift between father and daughter became apparent when Miley notably omitted any mention of her father during her acceptance speech at the recent Grammy Awards, despite expressing gratitude to her mother and sister. The absence of acknowledgment during such a significant moment underscored the strained relationship between the two.

Sources indicate that Miley and Billy Ray have been estranged for some time, with the situation further exacerbated by Miley’s absence from her father’s wedding. While Miley served as a maid of honor at her mother’s wedding, she chose not to attend her father’s subsequent weddings.
