The Miley Cyrus death hoax story found its way back into the internet again after a fake news report went viral on Facebook speculating that The Voice judge had died of an apparent overdose.
Sources also say that the report claims to have a video of the singer’s supposed death, but users who click on the link actually run the risk of infecting their devices with harmful malware.
According to the website Snopes, Miley Cyrus’ death was reported with the following details:
“Miley Cyrus’ lifeless body was found by her entourage in a bathtub at her Hollywood home on Wednesday, authorities revealed,” shared Snopes. “Los Angeles investigators are trying to determine the cause of death. Officials refused to comment on reports that the famed actress/singer drowned from a prescription pill overdose. They have, however, made it clear that there were no signs of foul play.”
To make the story more convincing, writers of the fake report even added a Fox News logo to fool more readers. And apparently it worked with the death hoax prompting many internet users to search social media and the rest of the internet for any news that confirms Cyrus’ supposed death.
The Voice career of Miley Cyrus also suffered death hoax
But the singer is, of course, alive and well still bringing her flowery self to the Voice judge’s chair. Although, her career as a reality TV show judge has also been unsafe from its own death hoax, as other sources reported her quitting the Voice due to a supposed feud with judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.
According to OK! Magazine, “There was a point, according to the insider, that Cyrus broke into tears. Amidst that, the source said that Cyrus refuses to be beaten by the old men Adam and Blake.”
But Miley defended herself in an interview with Cosmopolitan sharing, “They can make fun of me for talking fast, but I think people can feel my enthusiasm,” in her interview.
As of posting, though, the singer seems to be very well and happy with her stint as a coach of the Voice.
Ironically, Miley Cyrus has also been raising suicide awareness, in light of her recent death hoax stories, sharing an Instagram post to promote the organization HappyHippies.org.
