Bret Michaels' representatives say the U.S. rocker did not have an affair with Tish Cyrus, the wife of singer Billy Ray Cyrus, as has been reported.

Billy Ray filed for divorce from Tish last week after 17 years of marriage.

The couple are the parents of five children, including pop star and actress Miley Cyrus.

"This is someone stirring a pot. This is untrue. (Michaels) respects the family and worked with Miley and Tish on a professional level," Michaels' publicist told the New York Post.

Michaels and Miley collaborated on the song "Nothing to Lose."
