Singer Kelly Osbourne has slammed Miley Cyrus' father Billy Ray for making public statements that he wished his daughter never become famous on the television show Hannah Montana. The singer, who acts with Miley in the upcoming film So Undercover, termed it as “harsh" and “disrespectful".
“I think that's a really inappropriate thing for someone to say, especially when what they did together gave that person their career back and that's not fair to do that to their own child. I think it's an inappropriate thing to say. He might have thought of it in a different way but in black and white (printed in papers) it seems just so harsh... I love Miley, she's a dear friend of mine, and I know how hard she works. She works so hard and I just think that discredits everything that's she's done in her life - not just for herself but her whole family and I just think it's disrespectful," she told CNN.
Kelly's mother Sharon Osbourne also said that Miley's dad should not have made such statements to the media. “I do (think it's inappropriate) too, and I don't think he should have done that in print... She (Miley) made him relevant again," she said.
It may be recalled that Billy Ray started attacking his daughter after parting ways with wife Tish. He shocked many by making statements, “The damn show destroyed my family... I hate to say it, but yes, I do (wish the show hadn't happened). I'd take it back in a second." However, he has taken back his remarks after patching up with Tish.
