Is Miley Cyrus dead?
Rumors have it that the 22-year-old singer was found dead in her Los Angeles home. Speculations are now arising if her case was a homicide or if she had committed suicide.
According to a report from Now8News, the “We Can’t Stop” singer’s body was found in her bathtub by her entourage last Wednesday at 2:17 AM. Rumors are also circulating that she died of overdose from a prescription pill. The report said that an autopsy will be conducted this week.
Authorities have now confirmed that there are no signs of foul play on her death.
However, hours after the news that Miley Cyrus is dead, a Snopes report clarified that the news that Miley Cyrus is dead is only hoax.
The singer, who is rumored to be married with longtime boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, has been a victim to death hoaxes for years now, the report said.
Snopes even added that the same site has already started the death hoax in November 19, 2015.
A proof that Miley Cyrus is still alive was the fact she has been very active in her social media pages in the past few days.
In her Instagram, she has uploaded her photo doing a yoga pose as well as a photo of herself on her first birthday in 1993.
In her caption, she said, “My 1st birffffday….. My dad says nothin has changed about me as I’ve gotten older… I still just half listen with only one ear out.”
Amidst rumors that Miley Cyrus is dead, the former Disney star is also sparking speculations that she is now married with the “Hunger Games” actor. She is also reportedly pregnant with their first baby.
According to a Celebuzz report, the couple secretly wedded in their Malibu home in front of their close friends and family. Sources claim that the two rushed their wedding and scrapped off their planned ceremony in Australia upon confirming the singer’s pregnancy.
