Billy Ray Cyrus filed for divorce in May after seven months of marriage to Firerose.

Firerose told Page Six on Sunday that Cyrus isolated and verbally attacked her during their time living together on a farm just outside Nashville. She claimed the Achy Breaky Heart singer closely monitored her communication and movements, causing her to fear her husband and feel like a prisoner in their home.

The outlet reportedly "reviewed evidence of [Cyrus] yelling at [Firerose]."

"He would rage at me, shout at me at the top of his lungs. He would terrify me, yelling, 'You stupid dumb f------ b----, crazy w----,'" Firerose alleged, "It was illogical and insane and terrifying."

“Billy had very strict rules,” she continued, “I didn’t have a car. I was only allowed to go to the local chiropractor and allowed once a month to get my nails done."

She said visits from family and friends were not allowed by Cyrus, who allegedly demanded she read any texts or emails she received aloud to him "for permission." Firerose "couldn't find the courage to leave" in the face of the "systematic isolation," she claimed.

Sources close to the musician backed her story, calling Cyrus "very picky about who could come to the property."

“It definitely wasn't this abundance of joy,” a stylist who has been close with Firerose for six years said, adding, "It felt like Firerose was in a prison that she didn’t sign up for."

Another insider claimed to be "one of the only friends who was aware of the verbal, emotional and psychological abuse Firerose has endured by Billy, as she was completely isolated and afraid of sharing what she was going through with others."

The friend, who works in mental health, said they "could tell she was becoming worn down.”

Shortly after she was diagnosed with the BRCA1 gene — putting her at a heightened risk of getting breast cancer — she decided to schedule a double mastectomy for May 23, the day Cyrus filed for divorce and allegedly told her to leave their home. She ultimately did not have the surgery, she said.

Firerose, whose relationship with Cyrus began while he was still married to his ex-wife, Tish, said she "would never ever have entered into a relationship with a married man, but he was such a great manipulator."

She recalled Miley's dad assuring her that he was divorcing Tish, saying, "Every day, he told me, 'I'm getting divorced' but he said it was complicated because of the kids, and they had been married for so long. I just accepted everything he told me to be true."
