Miley's destructive behavior has finally caught the eye of her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus.
Billy told the March issue of GQ that he wishes Hannah Montana never happened and that the show is to blame for the problems his daughter is now facing.
I'm scared for her, he said. She's got a lot of people around her that's putting her in a great deal of danger. I know she's 18, but I still feel like as her daddy I'd like to try to help. Take care of her just a little bit, to at least get her out of danger. I want to get her sheltered from the storm. Stop the insanity just for a minute. When you go through what she's been through, it takes a beating on you.
Miley's TV show, Hannah Montana which is the reason Miley became so famous, was the catalyst for her troubled behavior, and Billy wishes it never existed.
I hate to say it, but yes, I do. I'd take it back in a second, he said. The damn show destroyed my family.
Billy is in the middle of a divorce from Miley's mom Tish, to whom he's been married for 18 years. He said that the whole thing has been very difficult on Miley.
Two months ago a video surfaced of the 18-year-old singer and actress smoking from a bong. In the clip, Miley is seen giggling and talking to an unidentified woman. The bong was allegedly filled with salvia, a psychoactive herb that is legal in California. The video was reportedly shot in Cyrus' L.A. home days after she turned 18.
Miley has also been the center of many other scandals including the existence of racy photos, pole- dancing, and a controversial Vanity Fair cover when she was only 15.
As for Miley's 18th birthday bash, Billy explains why he did not attend.
You know why I didn't go? Because they were having it in a bar. It was wrong. It was for 21 years old and up ... all them people, they all wanted me to fly out so that then when all the bad press came they could say, 'Daddy endorsed this stuff.' I started realizing I'm being used, he said.
Billy also enforces the fact that he has never made a single dollar off of his daughter.
I'm proud to say to this day I've never made one commissioned dollar, or dime, off of my daughter, he said.
