Court records show Tish Finley Cyrus filed on Thursday in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences. She's seeking custody of their 13-year-old son and spousal support.

It's the couple's second divorce attempt. Billy Ray Cyrus filed for divorce in 2010 but later withdrew his petition.

The couple issued a joint statement seeking privacy for their family. They say they want to find a resolution that's in the best interests of their family.

The two got married in December 1993 and have three children together, including actress-musician Miley Cyrus.

Billy Ray Cyrus rose to fame in 1992 with his song Achy Breaky Heart.
