Miley Cyrus 'snubs' dad again in Grammys post after reported 'rift' between the pair

Miley Cyrus 'snubs' dad again in Grammys post after reported 'rift' between the pair

The 'Flowers' hitmaker failed to mention her father during her Grammy acceptance speech

All eyes have been on superstar Miley Cyrus this week, following her sensational double whammy win at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards.

The ex-Hannah Montana star, 31, first left her fans picking their jaws up off the floor after taking to the star-studded red carpet - alongside her 'armed' bodyguard - wearing a dress constructed entirely of safety pins.

And later in the show, she set tongues wagging once again after beating the likes of Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo and SZA to take home the illustrious Record of the Year award for her hit track 'Flowers'.

While the award marked Miley's first ever win at the prestigious music ceremony, it was closely followed by a second for Best Pop Solo Performance for the same song.

After her double win, Miley took to the stage to make her acceptance speech, thanking her loyal fan-base, 'mummy' Tish, sister Brandi, and her 'love' Maxx Morando.

One feature of the singer-songwriter's speech that viewers at home found somewhat confusing, however, was that she didn't mention her father, fellow singer and her former Disney Channel co-star, Billy Ray Cyrus, amid rumours that the pair are embroiled in some form of 'rift'.

She concluded her speech by saying: "Not everyone in the world will get a Grammy, but everyone in this world is spectacular.

"So please don’t think that this is important - Even though it’s very important, right, guys?

"We are very excited. I want to thank everyone who is standing on the stage. I don’t think I forgot anyone, but I might have forgotten underwear. Bye."

Following the speech, one X user wrote: "Did y’all catch the shade Miley threw at her dad during her award speech?"

Another wondered: "So… why Miley Cyrus didn’t thank Billy Ray Cyrus but thanked her mom and whole team?"

While fans of the once-close father-daughter duo may have previously hoped Miley's failure to mention her dad was a 'heat of the moment' mistake, it looks as though speculation could be true.

That's because the Grammy winning artist went on to pay tribute to her fans in a post-victory Instagram upload which, again, seemed to snub her 62-year-old dad.

Taking to social media today (6 February), sharing a snap of her accepting her award, Miley claimed she 'had all the perfect things to say but none of them could come out in this moment of shock'.

She went on: "I’m happy they didn’t… because (thankfully) prepared perfection just isn’t my story. Life is so much more exciting this way."

Miley gave a special shout-out to fellow musician Mariah Carey for her support, her mother - who she claims she loves 'more than anything in the entire universe' - and her little sister Brandi.

Miley and her father have reportedly endured an estranged relationship for some years.

She also thanked her godmother, country veteran Dolly Parton, as well has her 'collaborators', 'glam team' and 'above all else', her fans.

"No award means as much to me as the years we’ve spent together," the singer wrote in the caption. "You SAW me before this recognition. A day doesn’t pass that I don’t spend at least a moment thanking heaven for sending me such supportive earth angels.

"I love you with my entire heart. To many more years together."

Rumours of a rift from her father first began following her parents' 2022 divorce, after which Miley reportedly 'sided with' her mother Tish, going on to support her subsequent relationship and marriage to Australian actor, Dominic Purcell.

Miley went on to unfollow her father on Instagram before rumours began swirling they were no longer on speaking terms, following his marriage to singer Firerose (real name Johanna Rosie Hodges), 34.

Tyla has contacted Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus' representatives for comment.
