"It's 100 percent false. Someone doctored a J-14 article and posted this online," publicist Meghan Prophet tells PEOPLE. "It's ridiculous and completely untrue. Miley is not pregnant. She just wrapped season two of Hannah Montana and will go on tour beginning Oct. 18."
The rumors began circulating when a blog posted a mock interview with the teen star, supposedly given to J-14 magazine, saying she was expecting a baby. J-14 has also posted a denial on its Web site saying, "Despite Internet rumors, J-14 NEVER reported that Miley Cyrus is pregnant."
Indeed, the young star is actually about to hit the road a 54-date tour that kicks off on Oct.18 in St. Louis. In fact, she'll play to a sold-out crowd one night before her father's tour comes to town.
More on Miley
The elder Cyrus, speaking to PEOPLE last week from the Hannah Montana set, added that hitting the road "makes me very happy. There's going to be people in the audience and people singing along again."
Billy Ray's tour, to promote his latest CD Ready, Set, Don't Go, kicks off a free concert Sept. 29 at the University of Texas-Pan American in Edinburg, Texas.
As for his time on last season's Dancing with the Stars, he jokes that the career detour "got a little sick and twisted."
"I found myself on the wrong side of the microphone," says Cyrus. "I was on the dance floor and no, I'm supposed to be the singer...The dancers dance and I sing."
But he'll be going back for more: On Oct. 9, Cyrus will make his return to Dancing and "get things right" as the show's guest performer.
