Well it totes could've happened - according to a rep for one of the song's writers, Sacha Skarbek!
The lyricist ignited rumors when he tweeted the following in 2012:
Beyonce song now becoming a Miley Cyrus song?!! Good/bad? I don't know??!!!!

Sasha's rep has now confirmed that although the track was created in a session initially set aside for Yoncé, the writers realized Wrecking Ball would work better with another singer - a la Mileybird swooping in to snag it!
"Wrecking Ball was not written for Beyoncé. Originally, the [songwriting session between Dr. Luke and Sacha] was booked to write a song for Beyoncé. But as the song progressed, the songwriters realized the song would not work for her."
Good thing it wasn't Bey's style…
Guess some things are just meant to
