Tina Turner Victim of Death Hoax

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates


Tina Turner is the subject of death rumors making the rounds on Facebook and Twitter.

The legendary performer appears to be the victim of a hoax that started with a so-called “anticipated obituary” on a site called Necropedia, which claims Turner “died” on June 9, 2012.

There was also, supposedly, a mysterious “radio report” about Turner’s alleged death.

It is 100% false.

Turner is alive and well.

Her rep assures Gossip Cop she’s “very much alive,” and that he just spoke with her.

We hope these vile hoaxes “die” out.
