 Celebrity death hoaxes have been around as long as there have been celebrities.  And the socail media has only made things worse.  TheWrap.com has a list of 50 Celebs Who Were Reported Dead, but Weren't.  Peep thses few....

1.  Avril Lavigne:  Dead by suicide in 2003, replaced by a LOOK-ALIKE!  Yes, because of the look-alike angle, this conspiracy theory is still alive . . . just like Avril.

2.  Eminem:  Car accident, 2009.  Swerved into an oncoming truck while talking on his cell phone.

3.  Beyoncé:  Died 2016, after not getting a cut treated.  Remember when she accidentally ripped an earring out of her head during a show, but kept on performing, even though it was bleeding?  She probably should have had that looked at.

4.  Miley Cyrus:  Killed by a hit-and-run driver in 2008 . . . then found dead of a prescription pill overdose in a bathtub last year.

5.  Sean Penn:  Found murdered in his home last year . . . possibly by El Chapo.

6.  Hilary Duff:  Fell to her death from the Kauri Cliffs in New Zealand in 2011.

7.  Paris Hilton:  Stabbed to death by a fellow inmate in 2007, while serving time for a DUI.

8.  Taylor Swift:  Left us in 2009, due to either a car accident or an allergic reaction to sleeping pills.

9.  Will Ferrell:  2006 . . . Crashed into trees while paragliding.

10.  Macaulay Culkin:  Pronounced dead by the Internet in 2014.  But at least he had a little "Weekend at Bernie's"-style funwith it.

11. Eddie Murphy:  He's been the subject of death hoaxes on more than one occasion. On Aug. 30, 2012, he has was said to have been killed in a snowboard accident and, most recently, was again the subject of internet buzz after the death of his brother Charlie lead to mistaken identity.

12. Denzel Washington:  Remember that fake news about Eddie Murphy dying in a snowboarding accident? Facebook tried the same story with Washington in Nov. 2011.
