Lost Custody of the Children

Following their divorce, a custody battle ensued between them as both wanted to take the kids along with them. They had a series of court appearances in this regard. Finally, he failed to secure the custody of their two children; instead, the court gave the custody of their 2 children to Tish Cyrus, while Baxter received only limited visitation rights and occasional phone conversations with the children.

This was also short-lived because Tish filed another lawsuit stating her children’s unwillingness to meet or speak with him again. After a lengthy hearing, her request was graciously granted by the court. Today, it is believed he is no longer in contact with the children any further.
