Rihanna Victim of Sick Death Hoax

Truth rating: 0

By Shari Weiss


Rihanna is the latest victim of a death hoax.

A photoshopped fake article, made to look like it was from a French news site, alleged the singer “sunk into an [alcohol-induced] coma before succumbing to a heart attack.”

The phony “news” story spread rapidly on social media Monday night, leading many to believe Rihanna had died.

It is 100% false.

Rihanna is NOT dead.

Similarly false stories have previously “claimed” Bon Jovi and others.

Last January, Rihanna herself was falsely said to have died in a “plane crash.”

It’s time for these gross pranks to die out.
