Who is Christopher Cody Cyrus?
Christopher Cody Cyrus was born on the 8th day of April 1992 to Bill Ray Cyrus and Kristin Luckey in South Carolina. He is of American nationality and White ethnicity. Although his father is internationally famous, not much is known about his beloved mother who raised him till adulthood.
Nevertheless, recent studies show that his mother was a waitress in South Carolina. While tending to customers, she came across Billy Ray Cyrus who was just an upcoming singer with high hopes of becoming famous someday. The pair fell in love, dated and eventually broke up a few months before she gave birth to her son.
Although Billy Ray Cyrus willfully and happily accepted paternity of Christopher, he wasn’t involved much in the raising of the lad, his excuse being his marriage to Hollywood actress Leticia Jean Finley who at the time of Christopher’s birth was pregnant. However, despite his absence from the actual raising of his first son, he was known to send monthly allowance to Kristen for upkeep.
As regards to his educational background, Christopher Cody Cyrus attended elementary school at Myrtle Beach Intermediate Schoolhouse before going on to enroll at Forrestbrook Middle High School. Upon completion of his high school education, he worked at an electric store for a brief moment where he was paid a meager sum of $7.5 per hour for his services. Despite the low pay, he did his duties with dedication and diligence as it offered him a chance to contribute to paying part of the bills which was a burden to his mother.
After a while, the boy decided to further his education by enrolling at the University of Texas to study Law. However, there’s a constant debate as to if he graduated or dropped out at some point given the fact that he doesn’t introduce himself as a lawyer.
