Country music star Billy Ray Cyrus has shared a handwritten note that he claims was written by his estranged wife, Australian musician Firerose, in which she allegedly “begged” him to take her back just days after he filed for divorce.

The revelation comes as Firerose has accused Cyrus of domestic abuse in her own divorce filing.

The 62-year-old singer’s attorneys, Rose Palermo and Jason Talley of Cheatham Palermo and Garrett, told PEOPLE that Cyrus found the note upon returning to his home, which Firerose had vacated by court order. The note allegedly expressed Firerose’s deep feelings for Cyrus and her desire to reconcile. 

“I miss you more than I can possibly explain in words Baby,” the note reads. “Please let’s work this out and not become anything but closer out of this hellish experience. I need you. I love you. I am so sorry.”

Cyrus’ attorneys also provided an alleged text message from Firerose that echoed similar sentiments. The message, sent shortly after she left Cyrus’ residence, expressed her hope for reconciliation and highlighted her emotional distress.

“I am listening to you Baby. I love you,” the message begins. “I don’t want us to be on different sides fighting a war that nobody wins. I am going to do what you’re telling me because you promise me we can talk as soon as I’ve left and I trust you.”

The message continued with Firerose expressing her heartbreak and longing for Cyrus, stating that she felt “completely lost” and missed him deeply. She referred to Cyrus as her “best friend in the world every day for over 4 years” and described her emotional and physical state since their separation.

“I lost 5lbs since Wednesday,” the message adds. “I just can’t eat no matter how much I try. I don’t want to live without you. Please give me a chance to make this right. I can explain everything but I need you by my side. I need my Hero back.”

The message concluded with a series of emojis, including a praying, crying, and red heart emoji.

Firerose’s representatives have not responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment regarding the alleged note and text message or Cyrus’ new allegations. 

The ongoing legal battle between Cyrus and Firerose began with Cyrus filing for divorce on May 23. Firerose responded on June 14, accusing Cyrus of “extreme verbal, emotional and psychological abuse.”

In her court documents, she claimed that Cyrus filed for divorce one day before she was scheduled to undergo a double mastectomy.

In response, Cyrus filed a supplemental complaint on June 17, alleging that Firerose had been conducting a campaign to isolate him from his family and had blocked him from communicating with one of his daughters since the initial filing in May.

Cyrus’ lawyers have dismissed Firerose’s allegations as “confusing and suspicious,” pointing to her alleged note and text message as evidence that contradicts her claims of abuse. 

“If Mr. Cyrus was truly guilty of the allegations that [Firerose] alleges in her pleadings, then it is mindboggling to try and explain why she would want to return to live with him,” they stated. “Furthermore, she was pleading with him to give her a chance to explain everything to him.”

Additionally, Cyrus accuses Firerose of lying about her past marriages and using his last name to further her own career. He claims she had been dishonest about being married twice before and about her last name.

The unfolding drama has captivated public attention, as both sides continue to present conflicting narratives. Firerose’s allegations paint a picture of a turbulent relationship marred by abuse, while Cyrus’ claims suggest a desperate attempt by Firerose to reconcile despite the divorce proceedings.

The court will now have to sift through the evidence and testimonies from both parties to determine the veracity of the allegations. As the legal process continues, the public remains divided, with supporters on both sides awaiting further developments.

For now, the situation remains tense and unresolved, with each new revelation adding complexity to an already fraught divorce battle.
