Miley Cyrus may be a super celebrity known all around the world, but she is not the only famous member of the family. The members of the Cyrus family individually are seen doing something now and then. But a name 'Baxter Neal Helson' seems to have been entirely forgotten by hi family.

Baxter Neal Helson is the name of the former fling of Miley's mother, Tish Cyrus. Tish was married to the local drummer named Baxter Helson from 1986 to 1989. She was once called a Rock ‘n’ Roll groupie by one of her former friends, probably because she got pregnant with Baxter’s baby at the age of 19. She was pregnant with Brandi Glenn Cyrus who was born on May 26, 1987. She later gave birth to Trace Dempsey Cyrus on February 24, 1989.

So, far even image related to Baxter Neal Helson has not been retrieved on the net. 

Her Present Status:

Tish started dating her current husband Billy Ray Cyrus, a musician, from 1991. Except for a few bumps on the way, they have been married for 22 years. 

She has not been linked with any other people except American singer Bret Michaels in the past. But who cares about the past when her present relationship with hubby Billy has been awesome? Just look at this picture she uploaded on Instagram with him. They look happy in love.

The Custody Battle:

The divorce between Baxter and Tish was not the last they heard from each other. A series of trials took place about the child (Trace)’s custody matters. A court paper explains that while primary custody was provided to the mother (Tish), the father (Baxter) was granted visitation and phone calls. But after the father moved to the Nashville area, he filed a petition to enforce specific visitations time.

On the other hand, the mother filed a motion stating that the child should not be forced to visit the father because she along with her mother and a treating psychiatrist had witnessed the child showing disinterest to visit his father. It was particularly because of a haircut his father gave him without his will.The kid also didn't like his father calling him ‘Neal’ when he wanted to be called ‘Trace.' The mother thus requested the court for a supervised visitation, which was denied at the time.

The court, however, ordered them to stop using derogatory statements about each other during the visitations, granting Tish 's motion against the Plaintiff.

Miley's Momager:

Tish's real name is Laticia Jean Finley and she is Miley’s ‘Momager’ in a sense that she is not just her mother but also her manager.

Bradi and Trace may be biologically related to Baxter, but they have still chosen the Cyrus name. Both of them are close to father Bill.
