Billy Ray Cyrus has got beef with daughter Miley's ex

Miley Cyrus hasn’t always seen eye to eye with her dad Billy Ray Cyrus, 52, but in the wake of her Achy Breaky Heart he’s proved he’s totally got her back.

The country singer was said to be so outraged by Liam Hemsworth, 23, being snapped smooching with Mexican actress Eiza González, 23, just days after he and Miley ended their engagement that he rang up Liam to give him a good scolding!

A family insider says: Billy Ray kicked off after Miley broke down at the iHeartRadio festival last week.

‘He told Liam he was being a total jerk for flaunting his new girlfriend around town.

‘He told him to show Miley a bit of respect.’

It’s a tad rich as defiant Miley, 20, has moved on, too!

She was spotted cosying up to producer friend Mike WiLL Made It on 21 September.
