Billy Ray Cyrus: 'Hannah Montana' 'Destroyed My Family'

Photo Courtesy - Walt Disney Records(NEW YORK) -- No amount of fame and fortune is worth the trouble that came with Hannah Montana.  That's what Billy Ray Cyrus says about daughter Miley starring in the hit Disney show.

He tells GQ he wishes Hannah Montana had never come into their lives, adding, "I hate to say it, but yes, I do.  I'd take it back in a second.  For my family to be here and just be everybody okay, safe and sound and happy and normal, would have been fantastic.  Heck, yeah.  I'd erase it all in a second if I could."

He added, "I'll tell you right now -- the damn show destroyed my family."

Billy Ray also says whenever his 18-year-old daughter found herself causing controversy, he would be cited as the person responsible.

Cyrus said, "Every time the train went off the track...her people, or as they say in today's news, her handlers, every time they'd put [the blame on] me...I took it because I'm her daddy...OK, nail me to the cross."

Billy Ray, who confessed "there's no doubt" his family is under attack by Satan, also says he's worried because so many people want a piece of his daughter.

"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 want to get her sheltered from the storm."

Billy Ray also discussed the infamous salvia incident, in which Miley was caught on camera smoking the herb from a bong.  He said one of Miley's "handlers" told him "it was none of my business."  He then added, "I should have said, 'Enough is enough -- it's getting dangerous and somebody's going to get hurt'...Honestly, I didn't know the ball was out of bounds until it was way up in the stands somewhere."

'Hannah Montana' Comes to an End; Final Episode Airs Sunday

Photo Courtesy - Walt Disney Records(NEW YORK) -- The final episode of Miley Cyrus' TV show Hannah Montana airs on Sunday.

The Disney Channel series first debuted March 24, 2006, when Cyrus was the fresh-faced daughter of country star Billy Ray Cyrus.  Now, five years later, Miley's an international superstar who's sold millions of albums and concert tickets and millions of dollars' worth of merchandise.

In the final Hannah Montana episode, titled "Wherever I Go," Miley/Hannah is called upon to make the biggest decision of her life -- whether to go to college, or to accept a role in a movie.  Cyrus wouldn't go into details about the episode, but said, "I think everyone realizes that they can't live on Hannah Montana's coattails forever.  You gotta move on at some point."

Leaving behind the show on which she grew up will be a strange experience for Cyrus, who always felt it was her comfort zone.  She said, "It's going to be hard, after a tour or a movie, not [being able to say], 'OK, yeah, I can go back to the show and people that I'm used to and people that I like and have known me before any of this stardom thing ever happened.'"

Cyrus will next appear in the upcoming film L.O.L., opposite Demi Moore, and is also shooting another film called So Undercover.  She'll likely continue to tour and record as well.  Cyrus said, "I know, like, 100 percent what I wanna do, and that's continue to entertain people."

The final episode of Hannah Montana airs at 7 p.m. E.T. Sunday on the Disney Channel.
