LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- A rep for Bret Michaels has denied a report claiming the rocker had an affair with Miley Cyrus’ mom, Tish.
“The reports of my client having an affair with Tish are unfounded and a complete fabrication,” Bret’s rep said in a statement to Access Hollywood on Tuesday. “He has been a close friend of the family for some time and has worked with Miley. It’s unfortunate that the sad breakup of Billy Ray and Tish has to be further tainted with these lies being reported.”
Additionally, a rep for Tish denied the report to Access Hollywood.
Previously in the day, Bret’s rep told Access, “This is untrue. My client is not that type of person. He has worked with Miley and Tish on a professional level.”
Earlier in the day, a report surfaced which claimed the 47-year-old Poison frontman and “Rock of Love” star was romantically involved with Tish, 43, while she was married to Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus.
Earlier in the day, Us Weekly claimed to have info from a source, which said the 47-year-old Poison frontman and “Rock of Love” star was romantically involved with Tish, 43, while she was married to Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus.
“It was a professional relationship that turned into something more,” the source claimed to the mag, adding that Bret “became close to the entire family” while working with Miley on the duet “Nothing to Lose” earlier this year.
The news comes just one week after news of Billy Ray & Tish’s divorce filing, which Us Weekly claims was a result of Billy Ray finding out about the alleged tryst.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Miley’s dad filed divorce papers in the family’s home state of Tennessee on October 26, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
In his filing, the former “Achy Breaky Heart” singer asked the court for shared custody of the couple’s three minor children and an “equitable distribution of the marital estate.”
A rep for Billy Ray had no comment on the report of the alleged affair when contacted by Access Hollywood on Tuesday.
Billy Ray and Tish, who have five children total, wed in 1993.
