Meet Miley Cyrus’ secret half-brotherMay 3rd, 2009 - 1:11 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 3 (ANI): Miley Cyrus, the world’s most famous teenager, and Christopher, a part-time employee in an electronics store, have one thing in common: dad Billy Ray.
Although the 17-million-pound superstar and 17-year-old have just eight months between them and they share the same father, Miley and Christopher are worlds apart.
Days before Hannah Montana: The Movie release, Miley said: “My priorities are my friends and my family.”
While saying so, she was referring to her dad Billy Ray Cyrus, mum Tish and siblings Brandi, Trace, Braison and Noah - she has never publicly mentioned the half-brother she has seen just five times in the past decade, reports The Mirror.
Recalling their last meeting at a Miley concert near his home in Fort Worth, Texas, in November 2007, Christopher said: “While she was on stage I was watching her from the sidelines. Afterwards we spent 20 minutes in her bus. Her voice is fantastic and I’m very proud of my sister.”
Christopher was born after his mother, Kristin Luckey, had a brief relationship with musician Billy Ray Cyrus when she was a waitress in South Carolina.
They had split by the time their son was born on April 8, 1992, and Billy Ray’s new girlfriend Tish was already pregnant with Miley.
Since Christopher doesn’t share a close relationship with his dad, he feels disappointed. However, when it comes to his star sister, Christopher generously says: “She doesn’t play the superstar in private. She’s a normal teenager having fun and she can laugh at herself.
“She’s the same now as she was before all this fame. She’s still my goofy sister. Miley is not a self-obsessed person at all. She’s just trying to have fun while working hard and I don’t know anyone who dislikes her.
“Miley asked how my mum was doing and was surprised that she had a little girl aged one and another on the way.” (ANI)
