Every rose has its thorns, but for Billy Ray Cyrus, it's not Bret Michaels. Within days of filing for divorce, it was rumored that the Poison frontman was responsible for the split between Cyrus and longtime wife Tish. Michaels initially remained silent about the accusations, which added more fuel to the poisonous fire. However, he's now become a bit more vocal about his role in the Cyrus split, which he says is non-existent. During an appearance to plug his new VH1 reality show, the rocker explained that life as he knows it doesn't involve Miley's ma. When asked point blank on Fox & Friends if he shagged the Hannah Montana matriarch, he flat-out denied it, saying, "The answer is no. I've been friends with her family forever. It started out with me and Miley simply working on a song together. Her mom, Tish, likes 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn,' the first concert Miley ever saw was Poison, and so they wanted to remake it for the new record." Michaels went on to say that his interaction with the Cyrus clan was professional, not personal adding, "When I was in the studio, Miley came in and sang on my song ... and that was it."
