The old news was reported when Miley Cyrus was 23. It was claimed that Liam Hemsworth’s girlfriend’s “lifeless” body was discovered by her entourage in a bathtub after she drowned from a prescription drug overdose.
The death hoax is doing the rounds on Facebook. The story appears to be genuine and has reportedly been edited to make it look like a legitimate source — Now8News.

In the last few months many celebrities have become victim of death hoaxes, thanks to false death rumors circulating online.
Some of the stars include Jaden Smith, Angeline Jolie, Sylvester Stallone, Nicolas Cage, Vin Diesel and more. Many of the death hoaxes have used the logo of CNN to make the story look real.
This took fans of the various celebs on a ride. For Liam Hemsworth’s girlfriend, this is not the first time that she has become a victim of a death hoax.
