When it comes to their children, parents are especially protective, doubly so when they believe they’re in danger. For Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus, the threat is all too real for Miley after her spat with Nicki Minaj, and they’ve got their major concerns.
Following the feud between Nicki Minaj, 32, and Miley Cyrus, 22, things have been quite tense, but not exactly to the point of violence. That hasn’t stopped Miley’s parents, Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus, from worrying that something will happen to their baby girl, according to our EXCLUSIVE source.

Though the VMAs were broadcast on August 30, the war between Miley and Nicki still rages on in September. Nicki has been distraught that her bestie Drake apparently has hopes to write a diss song with enemy Miley, and still fuming about her initial fight with Miley as well.
Now that this feud escalating into an all-out war, Miley’s parents are apparently going into total alarm mode. Though so far this has been a war of words, they’re terrified that Nicki will do something violent.
“Miley’s parents are taking this harder than she is,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Miley is blowing it off; she says Nicki just proved her point on live TV. She showed everyone she really is a mean person. Tish and Billy are proud of the way Miley handled the whole thing, but they’re also very worried. Their fear is that Nicki will do something physical to their little girl.”

It’s a reasonable fear for any parents to have when they see their child get into it with someone older and powerful who clearly has it out for them. Their minds obviously go to the worst scenario; they’re parents, after all!
Miley has been a bit quiet since hosting the VMAs, when Nicki called her a b—h onstage in front of everyone for talking about her to the press. Yikes. Though Miley has said she was “pissed” about Nicki’s move, otherwise — nothing. Maybe that will soothe her parents’ concerns.
If this diss track that Drake’s apparently so interested in doesn’t happen, then things will probably chill on Nicki’s end as well. We don’t see the feud lasting too long! HollywoodLifers, do you think Miley’s parents have reason to be concerned? Tell us in the comments and take our poll!
