 Bret Michaels behind Miley Cyrus' parents' split?Tish broke his heart … his Achy Breaky Heart. Too soon?

US Weekly reports that rock/reality star Bret Michaels is the reason Miley Cyrus‘ parents are getting divorced after 17 years of marriage. News of the affair comes after Billy Ray filed for divorce on Oct. 27. A source says Billy Ray found out about his wife’s infidelities (there was at least one other affair) before filing.

]]>Michaels and Miley’s manager mom Tish had reportedly been carrying on a secret romance since he recorded a duet (“Nothing To Lose”) with Miley last February, after which he became close with the entire Cyrus family. A source tells the mag, ” It was a professional relationship that turned into something more.”

The source also adds Billy Ray “was completely unaware” of the relationship. He is now seeking joint custody of their three minor children: Miley, Braison and Noah. The couple also has three older children from previous relationships.

Michaels’ rep is denying the report, saying “There has never been an affair or fling.” Tish’s rep denies the affair as well.
