Bret Michaels’ Rep Slams Cyrus Affair ‘Lies’

/ November 2, 2010

Just hours after Us Magazine reported that Bret Michaels and Tish Cyrus had an affair while she was married to Billy Ray, Celebuzz has obtained a statement from Michaels’ rep denying the report with some very strong words.

Michaels’ rep Joann Mignano tells Celebuzz: “The reports of my client having an affair with Tish are completely unfounded and a complete fabrication.”

The statement continues, saying that “Bret 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.”

Bret worked with Miley Cyrus last year to record his single ‘Nothing to Lose,’ which Cyrus sang a part of. The Us report that Michaels’ publicist so vehemently denies claims that he and Tish became romantically involved following his time recording with Miley.

Billy Ray and Tish announced their plans to divorce last week in a seemingly out-of-the-blue split. They had been married for 17 years, and had five children — including Miley — together.
