Billy Ray Cyrus and Firerose split in May.

“He believes that she married for other reasons but love,” the insider revealed of the blonde beauty, whom the father of Miley Cyrus met in 2010 while on the set of Hannah Montana.

“He believes she married him so he can take care of her financially. They’ve had drama and trust issues about money,” the source explained, noting, “He wants her out of his life.”

Despite the sad separation, the confidante added, “They have a prenup. He’s disappointed right now, but surely will turn it around quickly. He tends to be a very positive guy.”

As OK! previously reported, the “Achy Breaky Heart” artist, 62, filed for divorce from Firerose in May after only about seven months of marriage.

Per the pair’s agreement, Firerose was asked to move out of their marital home by the end of May and Billy Ray was required to pay $5K per month for her new lodging for three months or until the divorce is finalized.

Billy Ray also does not “believe that [Firerose] flew or was planning to fly to and from California on the dates of the scheduled flights purchased, but more likely purchased those flights and then canceled them to obtain future flight credits on Delta Airlines,” according to the legal paperwork.

The Grammy winner, who split from ex-wife Tish Cyrus in April 2022, asked the court to require Firerose to reimburse him for the charges.
