A viral Facebook hoax is saying Miley Cyrus died this weekend. Don't believe any of the hype that Miley Cyrus is dead, though, and don't click on any links.

According to the sham report, the singer passed away at her home due to an overdose, but it’s all a farce. The headline spreading virally reads:

“[SHOCKING] Miley Cyrus Found Dead in Los Angeles Home! Country singer Miley Cyrus found overdosed this afternoon in her Los Angeles home.”

Miley is Money

Shocking as that would be ... Miley hasn't been a country singer in years, if ever.

Oh yeah, and this alleged tragedy did not occur in any way, shape or form.

It's more than just a cruel joke, too, as this particular hoax appears designed to spread bogus surveys that make money for the scammers behind it.

Pretty shameless, but also fairly customary (sadly) in this day and age.

When users click on the post, they’re redirected to a site designed to look like Facebook, which prompts them to share the page before continuing.

There’s no video of Miley Cyrus dead, of course, or story of any sort.

She’s been the subject of similar rumors in the past, as have a host of other celebrities. Check out other stars done in by hoaxes in the past:

Floyd Mayweather apparently admits that, well, T.I. had a pretty good reason for coming at him this spring, as Floyd says he was doing the rapper's wife.

It's still not entirely clear what caused the brawl, or at least it wasn't before Mayweather, promoting his upcoming fight, shed some light on it Saturday.

Someone yelled at the press conference, "What about T.I.?" Floyd, rather than ignoring this, said, "What about the bitch? I was f--king his bitch."

The infamous T.I.-Floyd Mayweather fight broke out at a Las Vegas Fatburger in May, with Tameka "Tiny" Cottle reportedly at the center of the drama.

Tiny posted photos of the boxer and his daughter on Instagram right before the melee, and the rapper (real name Clifford Harris) was clearly not happy.

After the above clip hit the Internet, Floyd tried to run some damage control, saying he never had sex with Tiny and didn't say that at the press conference.

Instead, Mayweather insists he said "he thinks I was f--king his bitch."

He does mutter something before "I was f--king" but it's hard to hear.

Just weeks after Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott aired their dirty laundry and then some on True Tori, the couple is back with yet another reality show.

While it was filmed last year, before Dean cheated on Tori Spelling with the possibly fake Emily Goodhand, it further epitomizes their desperate thirst for fame.

Tori and Dean Moment
Tori and Dean share a touching moment. So much to say about these two.

“Tori’s friends weren’t surprised that she had signed up to do another reality show,” an insider said of their latest effort, Tori & Dean: Cabin Fever.

“Tori just can’t stay away from reality shows, and really wants to try and show the world that her family life is just as normal as everyone else’s.”

“Even though she was criticized for doing a reality show as she was dealing with Dean’s cheating scandal, Tori didn’t care,” the source revealed.

“And now, even though she currently has her scripted show Mystery Girls with ABC Family, and this new reality show too, Tori wants to film another one!”

He was already known as gun-slinging Bret Maverick from 1957-60.

In many respects, Garner was unusual for being very successful in both film and television. He starred in more than 50 films over his impressive career.

Miss Idaho, Sierra Sandison, isn't afraid to rock a bikini like a boss.

She's also not afraid to show off her insulin pump along with it.

On Monday, the 20-year-old posted a picture of herself on the pageant stage with her pump clipped to her bikini bottom, hashtagged #showmeyourpump.

The goal? Inspiring other diabetes patients to share their own pictures of their insulin pumps. Given how fast this went viral, many undoubtedly will.

"There it is," Sandison wrote of the Instagram pic above.

She shared it on social media became "diabetics from all over the country have been asking to see me and my insulin pump on the #MissIdaho2014 stage."

"I am overwhelmed with hearing how many lives have been touched by me simply wearing my pump on stage. It means so much to me, and I hope I can touch many more."

"Honestly, it is terrifying walking out on stage in a swimsuit, let alone attached to a medical device. Diabetes turned my life upside down when I was first diagnosed."

"Don't let your challenge hold you back or slow you down. Use it to, not only empower yourself and grow as an individual, but to serve and influence other people as well."

Sandison, whose viral photo comes just weeks after Bethany Townsend posed in her colostomy bag, says she took inspiration from a much older woman.

Christina Milian is dating Lil Wayne, according to reports.

"It is totally true," an insider says. "They are hooking up."

The word "rebound" comes to mind. As does "WHAT?"

  • Lil W
  • Milian

Anyone see this couple coming? Hello? Is this on?

The relationship comes one month after her second engagement ended; Milian, who was also engaged to The-Dream, has also ended things with Jas Prince.

Christina Milian, 32, and Lil Wayne, 31, were recently spotted holding hands at the 2014 ESPY Awards at L.A.'s Nokia Theatre on Wednesday.

They sat next to and smiled at each other throughout.

Milian and Rap-A-Lot Records CEO Jas Prince began dating in 2010, post-Dream, and announced they were going their separate ways last month.

We look forward to reporting on the duo's breakup within the next couple of months, unless Christina wants to become Weezy's next baby mama.

He's got a few Lil ones already.

Blake Lively covers Vogue in its new issue, and needless to say because it's Blake Lively, she looks incredible on it - no matter what she's wearing.

The 26-year-old former Gossip Girl actress dons American frontier-inspired attire in the magazine's gorgeous photo spread, shot in Wyoming.

Lively, famously private, reveals that her wedding dress was burned accidentally right after she tied the knot with husband Ryan Reynolds in 2012.

She said that while she watched Florence Welch singing at her wedding reception, sparklers were brought out, and one damaged her Marchesa gown.

"And later, my dress was hanging up and Ryan said, ‘Isn't that beautiful?' I said, ‘What?' And he pointed to the burn," Blake Lively told Vogue.
