Dylis Croman has been identified as the mystery woman posing with Miley Cyrus in a cryptic Twitter post in which the singer gives her father Billy Ray a very public ultimatum.
Dylis Croman starred alongside Billy Ray Cyrus during his late 2012 run in Broadway show Chicago.
Billy Ray Cyrus – who recently split from wife Tish again – is seen here posing with Dylis Croman in a photograph taken last November in New York at an after party following his debut in the hit musical.
On Monday night Miley Cyrus tweeted her father, after he continued to ignore her texts: “@billyraycyrus since you won’t reply to my texts I’m giving you an hour to tell the truth or ill tell it for you (sic)” and attached an image of her with an attractive mystery woman.
Miley Cyrus, 20, was seemingly frustrated with her father’s lack of communication over the last few days, but it appears she quickly had a change of heart.

Four minutes later, all evidence of the picture and message were removed, and a new tweet from Miley Cyrus appeared claiming: “Wtf? My twitter was just actin all types of cray!”
Miley Cyrus’ later tweet seems to conveniently suggest her Twitter account was hacked. But this isn’t the first time that Miley Cyrus has used the social networking site to berate father Billy Ray.
The day after her mother started divorce proceedings she tweeted: “Since your texts and email obviously aren’t working would you like to talk like this?”
Billy Ray Cyrus didn’t reply.
However, despite being taken down, the picture of Miley Cyrus and Dylis Croman and her accompanying message have certainly raised questions about what the singer is insinuating about her father and his former Broadway co-star.
Billy Ray Cyrus and Miley’s mother are currently going through divorce proceedings again after Tish filed due to “irreconcilable differences”.
Agency news in Seoul reported that a mystery woman was sitting next to the young North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un at a concert this week.
The question of who she was, and what she was doing sitting next to Kim Jong-Un, buzzed through South Korea’s news media.
North Korean media gave no details, but showed her accompanying Kim Jong-Un to various state occasions: bowing with him in front of his grandfather’s portrait to mark the 18th anniversary of Kim Il-Sung’s death, walking with him in a fitted black skirt suit and heels, and sitting next to him during the concert performances.
The Hankyoreh newspaper in South Korea said one picture taken during the performances showed the mystery woman with her hand on the armrest of Kim Jong-Un’s chair.
The normal posture for those in Kim Jong-Un’s entourage is to keep their elbows tucked respectfully in.
This, said the paper, indicated that she was either his wife, or his younger sister.

A similar discussion erupted six months ago, when an unnamed woman appeared beside Kim Jong-Un during his father’s funeral commemorations.
It is not known whether Kim Jong-Un – believed to be in his late 20’ – has married.
But North Korea’s two previous rulers did not routinely include their partners in public events, leading many to conclude that the new mystery woman is a family member.
Not South Korea’s Joongang Ilbo newspaper, though. Its headline this week asked: “Is Hyon the new first lady of NK?”
The paper identified Kim Jong-Un’s companion as Hyon Song-Wol, a former singer with North Korea’s Bochonbo Electronic Music Band, whose popularity, it says, peaked in 1995 with her hit song Excellent Horse-Like Lady.
She reappeared to perform for the new North Korean leader in March this year, says the paper, after six years away from the limelight, during which time she reportedly married and had a child.
An unnamed South Korean intelligence official was quoted as saying that “the two have known each other since they were in their teens, and… rumors about the two having an affair have been circulating among Pyongyang’s top elite”.
If true, Seoul’s rumor mill goes, what does that say about the workings of North Korea’s new leadership – and more particularly, about the mind of its young leader?
Has Kim Jong-Un chosen this smart young woman in western dress as his partner? Is he bucking hoary old tradition by appearing with her – perhaps still married – in public?
As usual, windows into North Korea throw up more questions than answers.
For now, ”mystery woman” she may remain.
But then, let us not forget, after six months in power, the man next to her – the heir to North Korea’s closed “Communist Monarchy” – is only slightly less of a mystery than she.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has been seen attending different events with a mystery woman.
The fact was led to speculation in South Korean media about her identity.
The woman was shown on state TV on Sunday with the new leader at an official ceremony in honor of his late grandfather, Kim Il-Sung.
And on Saturday, the same woman was seen sitting next to Kim Jong-Un at a concert.

The appearances have made front-page news in South Korea.
Kim Jong-Un took power in the Communist state after the death of his father at the end of last year.
North Korean society is so closed to the outside world that no-one knows if Kim Jong-Un is married, or even his exact age.
So the appearance by his side of an elegant, black-clad, short-haired woman, probably in her 20s, has left many North and South Koreans playing guessing games.
Some South Korean news outlets suggested she might be his younger sister, Kim Yo-Jong, of whom very little is known, or even his wife.
On Sunday, the woman, dressed in a black jacket and skirt, was seen bowing with Kim Jong-Un, as part of a ceremony to mark the 18th anniversary of the death of Kim Il-Sung, the country’s founder.
She is believed to be the same woman shown by North Korea’s KRT broadcaster on Saturday walking into a concert behind Kim Jong-Un and sitting next to him.
A photo of the pair was also published in the North’s Rodong Sinmun newspaper on Monday, according to the Associated Press.
