No, Britney Spears Is Not Dead
Britney Spears is alive and well.
Despite rumors that the 35-year-old singer had died, one of her representatives confirmed that she is alive during an interview on CNN Monday.
The rumors started because of an erroneous tweet from Sony Music’s account.
“Britney spears is dead by accident!” a tweet from Sony Music Global’s account claimed. “We will tell you more soon. #RIPBritney.”
Another read, “RIP @britneyspears #RIPBritney 1981-2016.”
The tweets have since been deleted and Spears’s manager confirmed that the rumors are not true.
“I assume their account has been hacked,” Adam Leber told CNN. “I haven’t spoken to anyone as of yet but I am certain their account was hacked. Britney is fine and well.”
“There have been a few Internet clowns over the years who have made similar claims about her death, but never from the official Sony Music Twitter account.”
