Reports surfaced last night that famed poet Maya Angelou had been rushed to the hospital early Saturday evening, with many speculating that she was dead.  Now we are hearing that there is no truth to the rumors.

TMZ posted an exclusive on Angelou, only saying that she was in the hospital and that she was supposed to be honored that evening in Los Angeles at the BraveHeart Awards.

CNN news editor Saeed Ahmed took to his Twitter page and clarified the situation, saying, "Contrary to TMZ report, Maya Angelou is fine, at home, and wasn't even in LA Sat Nite said her literary agent Helen Brann."
