"To say Miley is angry is an understatement," the friend told PopEater. "She's furious that her own flesh and blood would make a private matter so public."
Billy Ray Cyrus aired a lot of family business in a recent GQ interview, blaming "Hannah Montana" for destroying his family, saying he "never made one commissioned dime" off his daughter and asserting that Team Miley didn't allow him to parent her through the rough spots.
"Every time something happened in Miley's career, every time the train went off the track, if you will -- Vanity Fair, pole-dancing, whatever scandal it was -- her people, or as they say in today's news, her handlers, every time they'd put me ... 'Somebody's shooting at Miley! Put the old man up there!' " he told the mag. "Well, I took it because I'm her daddy, and that's what daddies do."
One entity not shocked by Billy Ray's interview, or Miley's attempts to establish herself as an "adult"? Disney itself, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which has a Disney insider saying they saw it coming -- that since "Hannah Montana" wrapped in January, Miley and Billy Ray have been clear with the company about their desire to distance themselves from the series and the character.
