Miley Cyrus’s Beloved Dog Floyd Has Passed Away

Miley1

(PCM) Anyone who has ever lost a pet can certainly imagine the anguish that Miley Cyrus must be going through right now after she announced via Twitter that her beloved dog Floyd has passed away.

Miley tweeted out the following message: ”I don’t wanna say it because I don’t want it to be real… But my precious baby Floyd has passed away. I am broken”.

Floyd was first introduced to Miley’s fans back in 2011 and she claimed on Twitter “I am so in love with him it is ridiculous”. This will be the second canine loss that Miley has suffered in the last two years. Her dog Lyla was accidentally killed by her dog Ziggy back in 2012. After the unfortunate incident Ziggy was adopted out to another family.

Miley is currently out on the Bangerz tour and has apologized in advance to fans if she was not herself during last night’s performance in Boston, MA. She is still grieving the loss of her beloved pet.

Our thoughts are with Miley as losing a pet in never an easy thing!

Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz Tour Bus Catches Fire, Thankfully “Everyone Got Out Safe” — All the Details

Tour-bus1(E! News) Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz shows are hot, but things dangerously overheated Monday night when one of her tour buses broke out in flames!

“A tire blew, then the whole bus caught on fire,” a source tells E! News exclusively, noting that Miley’s mom Tish and 14-year-old sister Noah were staying on this particular bus. The scary incident, which happened “between Texas and New Orleans,” thankfully caused no injuries. All of Noah and Tish’s belongings onboard were destroyed though, says a source, adding that the pair “literally don’t even have shoes.”

Noah tweeted and Instagrammed pictures and video of the seemingly irreparable damage done to the bus. And while this was certainly a scary setback for the Bangerz crew, the Cyruses are able to keep things in perspective. “Thank u God for keeping us safe,” Noah tweeted, reassuring fans, “Yes, everyone got out safe no one is injured what so ever!! everything is okay!!”

By early Tuesday morning, Miley, Noah, Tish and the whole Bangerz crew were safe in New Orleans, “trying to get a new bus and personal items.” The “Adore You” singer is still scheduled to perform tonight at the Smoothie King Center.

Thank goodness everyone is OK!
