Satire site Cream BMP set off a media firestorm when it reported that pop star Miley Cyrus announced Sunday that she was pregnant with rapper Juicy J’s child at the BET Awards Show. The site wrote that Cyrus stole the pre-taped awards show when she came with Juicy J, with whom she worked on the track “23.”

Juicy J reportedly told the audience, “I assure you she’s been doing a lot more than twerking.” Cyrus responded that she and Juicy J were expecting a child, and the audience laughed, believing it was a joke. Cyrus clarified and said, “No, I’m really pregnant” to a delighted reception.

Cyrus and Juicy J have an 18-year age gap: Juicy J is 38 years old and Cyrus is 20.

The report comes on the heels of Cyrus’ breakup with fiancee Liam Hemsworth.

Cyrus laughed off reports of the pregnancy on her Twitter, posting, “waking up to the news that I’m now pregnant with @therealjuicyj baby” and “Me: ‘did you know I’m pregnant with @therealjuicyj baby this morning’ @CheyneThomas : ‘what are you gonna name it?’ Me: ‘Juicy J Jr DUH.’” Tish Cyrus, her mom, wrote “hahahahaha YEP! read that last night!! This is my favorite one yet!”
