Miley Cyrus 2009 pregnancy denial confusion lingers

July 6th, 2009 - 9:00 pm ICT by John Le Fevre  

Miley Cyrus Confusion is reigning in the online world as to whether teen Disney star Miley Cyrus is pregnant to boyfriend Nick Jonas, or not.

An internet email and Twitter campaign in the early hours of Monday morning set the internet ablaze as rumor piled upon rumor that the young singer, actress, and author was pregnant.

The rumor gained momentum from bloggers, online fan sites and “news sites” copying and amending the original story until truth and fantasy became rapidly blurred into one.

To add to the confusion other websites re-hashed an old 2007 story wherein Cyrus denied she was pregnant, giving the appearance the denial was current and in response to the original smear campaign spread on Twitter, forums and emails in the first place.

However on Associated Content, Phillip White appears to quote a current source in his article Miley Cyrus Pregnant 2009? Again, No, quoting publicist Meghan Prophet saying “It’s 100 percent false. Someone doctored a J-14 article and posted this online.

“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.”

Whether or not Cyrus is pregnant or not will be questioned by some for days, or until a reputable online and or print publication or broadcaster publishes a statement confirming or denying the latest rumor.

This is just the latest example of celebrities being targeted in such campaigns, with singer Rick Astley rumored to have been dead last week, and Patrick Swayze some six weeks ago.

What is known for sure is that Cyrus is dating Nick Jonas, the youngest of the Jonas Brothers.

Miley is no stranger to ‘sexy scandals’ having already appeared in provocative photos and in some controversial MySpace photos. Cyrus has always said that she wants many kids but she intends to get married first.
