BRET MICHAELS, the American rocker and former Poison frontman, had an affair with the mother of Miley Cyrus which led to her separation from husband Billy Ray Cyrus, according to US Weekly Magazine. Billy Ray filed for divorce from Tish Cyrus on October 27th 2010 after 17-years of marriage, and a source close to the family suggested that he had found out about the fling with Michaels.
According to the insider, 47-year-old Michaels "became close to the entire family", after he and MILEY CYRUS released the duet 'Nothing to Lose', however, he and 42-year-old Tish reportedly continued to see each other and began a relationship. The source went on to say, "Billy Ray was completely unaware of what was going on". A representative for Michaels, who is due to undergo heart surgery in January said, "There has never been an affair or a fling".
Michaels, who has previously dated Pamela Anderson, has two daughters with KRISTI LYNN GIBSON. RAINE ELIZABETH SYCHAK was born in May 2000 and JORJA BLEU SYCHAK was born in May 2005.
