Miley Cyrus is trying to get fired from Hannah Montana, said TMZ.com. Sources tell the gossip website that the 15-year-old star and her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, think they can earn more money from her singing career than from television, and have been showing up late to the set and alienating the cast and crew. Miley denied the report, saying she’s “fully committed” to the hit show. A Disney spokesman said it expects Cyrus to film at least 30 more episodes of Montana for this season and next.
