Billy Ray Cyrus is denying rumors that he deleted Lindsay Lohan's phone number from daughter Miley Cyrus's cell phone.

On Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show Tuesday morning, the Idol host brought up reports claiming that the two young stars met Grammy weekend and traded numbers, but that Billy Ray went through Miley's phone and erased Lindsay's digits.

Billy Ray's response: Not true. "We love Lindsay," he said.

Cyrus, 46, emphasized that he wants his kids to think of him as a "best friend." "I wanna be the person [Miley] wants to talk to," he told Seacrest. Fifteen-year-old Miley has a lot of friends, and "I just want to be one of those friends."

When Seacrest asked Billy Ray for words of wisdom on how to keep a teen star from running into trouble, the former "Achy Breaky" country star said it's all about "having a good heart and loving people and knowing that you're here for a reason."
