    Default Celebrity Death Hoaxes


    Stars Who Are Still With Us







    In the age of social media, it's easier than ever for misinformation to spread far and wide. Though death hoaxes have been terrifying fans for decades now, the speed with which they make impact is faster than ever. Thankfully, none of these death stories had any weight to them.

    Chris Brown







    R&B star Chris Brown has been hit with a couple of death hoaxes, but none so amusing as the one orchestrated on both Twitter and YouTube in March 2012. Brown's detractors cheekily posted comments like, "Rest in peace – may you be greeted in heaven by seventy virgins and a baseballbat" on his official music videos.

    Paris Hilton






    In June 2007, a man named Mike Burke spread a fake CNN story about socialite Paris Hilton getting stabbed to death by fellow prison inmates at the Los Angeles Twin Towers Correctional Facility. Burke later explained, "On Friday after hearing the Paris Hilton news in regards to her going to jail, I decided to make this fake website to express my feelings about it being front page material.”

    Justin Bieber






    Justin Bieber is hoax-killed every couple of months, most recently in March 2012, when the hashtag #RIPJustinBieber caused mild panic. Fans quickly mobilized to turn the trend around with the hashtag, #RIPHatersofJustinBieber. Bieber first had to address rumors of his own passing in 2009, when tweeters erroneously reported that he'd killed himself.

    Will Smith






    It's been an awfully long time since Will Smith had a hit on the Billboard charts, but he is by no means deceased. Hoaxsters tried to make people believe otherwise in May 2011, when a story about him tumbling off a cliff in New Zealand made the rounds. An easy explanation: Smith's name ended up in a fake news generator with an official-looking logo.

    Miley Cyrus






    Long before Miley Cyrus was fake-engaged, she was fake-dead. Her YouTube page was hacked in 2008, when someone posed as her BFF Mandy Jiroux and wrote, "We're very hurt to tell everyone this, but Miley died this morning after being hit by a drunk driver. Miley told us if anything ever happened to her, then we should let her fans know before the public...R.I.P. honey, we will miss you so much."
