Miley Cyrus has laughed off rumors claiming she is pregnant with rapper Juicy J's baby, just weeks after her split from ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth.
The "Wrecking Ball" singer, 20, took to social networking site Twitter on Monday where she responded to false reports claiming she made a pregnancy announcement during Saturday's BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta.
Cyrus, who has worked with Juicy J in the past, is not romantically involved with the hip hop artist, whose real name is Jordan Michael Houston.
"Waking up to the news that I'm now pregnant with (Juicy J's) baby," Cyrus tweeted to her 14 million Twitter followers on Monday.
"Me: "did you know I'm pregnant with @therealjuicyj baby this morning" @CheyneThomas : "what are you gonna name it?" Me: "Juicy J Jr DUH" she joked in another tweet.
On Saturday CreamBMP.com, which is a satirical news site, claimed Cyrus, 19, attended the BET event with her father, Billy Ray Cyrus.
Sources reportedly told the unreliable site that the singer announced that she is expecting a child with Juicy J and some fans were initially unaware that the report is false, according to E! News.
The pop singer's mother Tish also helped refute the bizarre pregnancy rumors in a telling tweet.
"hahahahaha YEP! read that last night!! This is my favorite one yet!" Tish tweeted.
The pregnancy report comes just two weeks after Cyrus and Hemsworth, 23, ended their engagement in September. The pair, who began dating in 2010, mutually parted ways after a series of relationship woes in part stemming from her infamous MTV VMAs performance.
"Liam really does care about Miley, but her racy new look and sort of ghetto attitude isn't exactly what he signed up for," an alleged friend of Hemsworth previously told RadarOnline.com prior to the pair's split.
"Her VMA performance absolutely mortified him and he couldn't be more embarrassed. He doesn't really see anything sexy about what she did on stage," the source explained.
Over the past year the former Disney star has made headlines for her substantial weight loss; drastic haircuts; getting her 10th tattoo and wrist cutting suspicion.
Sources claim that her questionable behavior ultimately pushed "Hunger Games" star away.
"It's pretty much over. He knows he can't stay with her when this is who she's become," the source explained. "He doesn't want to babysit her anymore. He has to move on."
