Billy Ray Cyrus is Getting Sued for Age Discrimination

According to WSMV, Billy Ray Cyrus’ former road manager is suing Billy for a half-million dollars, claiming that he was fired because of his age.

The lawsuit filed Monday in Davidson County Circuit Court, states that Billy Ray Cyrus complained that 61-year-old Paul A. Abraham was “old and dumb and didn’t know anything about running a farm.”

According to Abraham’s attorney, Charles J. Fridell, Paul had worked as the road/stage manager as well as on Billy Ray’s Tennessee farm since 2007 and was fired May 1st.

In addition to asking for $500,000, Paul is also seeking punitive damages for “pain, humiliation, embarrassment and emotional distress,” the lawsuit said.
