Tish Cyrus spoke out on why she would not bring daughter Noah to her recent wedding to Dominic Purcell.

Following recent reports that Noah Cyrus was romantically involved with actor Dominic Purcell before her mom, Tish tied the knot with the Prison Break star in August 2023. A source told ET that the reporting about Noah and Dominic has been “exaggerated,” but adds that “Noah and Tish haven’t been close since Tish started dating Dominic.”

“It’s also been an adjustment for Noah in general for her parents to be divorced,” the source continues. “Tish didn’t invite Noah to her wedding because she thought it would cause a scene and drama.”

Rumors about this drama started after Noah and her brother Braison did not attend Tish and Dominic’s wedding last summer.

Instead, the brother-sister duo hung out together and went to Walmart, as evidenced by their Instagram Stories.

However, another source told ET at the time that there was “no family drama” surrounding Tish’s wedding.

“They are all supportive of Tish, but they are all doing their own things both career-wise and travel-wise, and it just didn’t work out for Noah and Braison to attend Tish’s wedding,” the source said.


Miley Cyrus served as the maid of honor on her mom’s big wedding day and has remained supportive of the new relationship.

“Miley just wants her mom to be happy and isn’t trying to get too involved,” ET’s source added.

Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus were married for 28 years. Throughout their time together, the couple split and filed for divorce three times until Tish’s final filing in April 2022. In the court documents, the two noted they had not lived together since February 2020, and she cited irreconcilable differences as the grounds for their divorce.

Billy Ray also remarried last year, tying the knot with singer Firerose in October 2023.

A source tells PEOPLE that Noah Cyrus, has stuck by her dad’s side, even amid apparent strained relationships within the Cyrus family.

“Noah is very loyal to Billy Ray,” the source says. “She and Billy Ray have always had a really close relationship.”


At the time of their separation, a representative for the family issued a joint statement to PEOPLE exclusively on behalf of Tish and Billy Ray, saying, “It is after 30 years, five amazing children and a lifetime of memories, we have decided to go our separate ways — not with sadness, but with love in our hearts. We have grown up together, raised a family we can be so proud of, and it is now time to create our own paths.”

The statement continued: “We will always be family and look forward to a continued and loving shared experience as friends and parents. We have not come to this decision lightly or quickly but with so much going on in the world, we wanted to provide some clarity and closure, so we can remain focused on what is important. With Love and Hope… Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus.”
