Until sometime close to 2010, it was never known that the Cyrus family from which came Miley Cyrus had someone else who is known as Christopher Cody Cyrus. Christopher is one member of the family that has generated a lot of interest since he has managed to get himself out of the shadows, even though he has never forced himself as part of the family.
Christopher Cody Cyrus Biography
Cody was born on April 8, 1992, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He was born to Billy Ray Cyrus by Kristin Luckey, who was at the time a waitress. Prior to his birth, his parents had dated for some time in 1991, and they broke up before he was born.
By the time he was born, his father who is an American singer, songwriter, and actor, had divorced his first wife, Cindy Smith, and was ready to marry actress and producer, Leticia Jean Finley who was already pregnant with his half-sister, Miley Cyrus.
Having always been away from his father and the rest of the Cyrus family, Christopher Cody Cyrus was raised by his mother and he attended the Myrtle Beach Intermediate School in South Carolina before moving to Forrestbrook Middle High School also in South Carolina. From here, he went to the University of Texas Law School.
Cody’s Family and Siblings
Unlike a larger part of his half family that is composed of singers, actors, and actresses, Christopher is not into the entertainment industry and although he shared a picture of himself with a guitar on his Instagram page, there is hardly any indication that he will have anything to do with music.
His half brothers and sisters
It is not only Hanna Montana (Miley Cyrus) that Cody has a half-sibling. His father also has other children including American actress, Noah Cyrus who was born on 8 January 2000, Actor Braison Cyrus born on 9 May 1994, American Musician Trace Cyrus born February 24, 1989, and actress Brandi Cyrus born on 26 May 1987.
While Brandi and Trace were born by Tish to her ex-husband, Baxter Neal Helson they have been legally adopted by Billy Ray, hence the change of name. Miley Cyrus, Braison, and Noah were born to the singer and actor by Tish. What this means is that of his biological children, Christopher Cody is the eldest.
Quick Facts About Cody Cyrus
1. He leads a very low profile life
While his family is one of the biggest families in the entertainment industry, Christopher has always stayed away, leading a low-profile life. He once worked in an electric store where he was paid $7.5 per hour and depended on his mother to give him a ride to school. This is even as he had a family with a father who’s very wealthy and a half-sister worth hundreds of millions.
2. Still speaks well of his father and sister
Although he has remained in the dark for almost forever, Christopher still speaks no ill of his family. He revealed that he maintained good terms with his father but doesn’t have any relationship with the actor and singer. About Miley Cyrus, he describes her as someone who is just like anyone else, not obsessed about herself, and easy to laugh at herself.
3. His net worth
One would easily get to assume that just because he is the son of Billy Ray Cyrus who has a net worth of $20 million and a brother to the pop singer Miley Cyrus who is worth about $200 million, Christopher should be very rich. Surprisingly enough, although his present net worth still remains very much unknown, there was a time when his net worth was nothing to write home about.
4. Cody’s love life
The relationship status of Christopher Cody Cyrus is not known, however, he has declared his love for an unknown woman in a Facebook post he made. More so, he is always seen with a woman and two kids on Facebook. It is not known whether they have any relationship or not.
5. Social Media
As it turns out, just as he is different from his other siblings in how he was raised, so is the difference as regards trying to stay private. Because of this, Chris Cody is not a great fan of Social Media as he doesn’t have what can be called official accounts. In fact, he is not too engrossed in his personal accounts as he doesn’t have many activities there.
