BILLY Ray Cyrus and Leticia “Tish” Cyrus filed for divorce after 17 years of marriage after Tish Cyrus allegedly had an affair with rocker Bret Michaels.
Michaels, 47, “became close to the entire family” in February when he recorded a duet, called Nothing to Lose, with Disney star Miley, a source told Us magazine. The song is a racy duet in which Miley sings background vocals as Michaels belts out lyrics like, “Yeah we both know better than this, still we can’t resist … Slowly get undressed.”
“It was a professional relationship that turned into something more,” the source added about the romance that allegedly developed with Tish, 43, and the Poison frontman.
“Billy Ray was completely unaware of what was going on,” the source said of the Achy Breaky Heart singer who is seeking joint custody of their three minor children, Miley (who turns 18 on November 23), Braison, 16, and Noah, 10.
A rep for Michaels denied the allegations. “There has never been an affair or a fling,” his rep told the entertainment magazine.
A rep for Tish Cyrus also denied the rumour.
Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus, who married in December 1992 and have five children, filed divorce papers in Tennessee on October 27 citing irreconcilable differences.
“As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family,” the pair said in a statement. “We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.”
