Following the recent scandal faced by The Cheetah Girls
star Adrienne Bailon
, the rumor that Hannah Montana
's Miley Cyrus
is dead has got fans in a rampage. It was mistakenly reported over the weekend that the 16-year-old actress had suffered a fatal demise in a car accident. A YouTube video was even released by someone claiming to be a close friend of the celebrity, reinforcing the idea that fans (or haters) will go to great lengths for their obsessions.
Online frauds continue to plague these Disney stars, which is nothing new in the entertainment world. The video that was posted included a series of heartfelt messages for Miley Cyrus, who supposedly passed away because of a drunk driving incident. Though the video was already deleted, sources have already gotten hold of what it contained.
The words in the fake video were: “Miley died this morning after being hit by a drunk driver. She always told us if anything ever happened to her then tell her loyal fans first before the public. R.I.P Miley, we'll never forget you!”
A “reliable” story that circulated the Internet was purportedly from 'Rueters', which further escalated the rumor. According to the supposed source, Miley was on her way to filming an episode of Hannah Montana
when a truck collided with her car. It even stated that there were witnesses to the accident, who said that they saw the alleged truck running a stop sign. It went on to state that Miley was rushed to Pacific Alliance Medical Centre, and that she suffered injuries during surgery.
It has been confirmed that the teen sensation is alive, and was never even involved in a car crash in the first place. All these false rumors have yet to be cleared up, as cyberspace is reeking with fans' restless comments.
Miley Cyrus has been the topic of controversy ever since she gained worldwide fame, with gossip ranging from disgraceful photos to perplexing romances. There's no doubt that these tales will continue to hound her, which means she'll just be more famous than she is now. And these days, it seems like even a truck won't be able to stop that.
