This is incredibly shocking. A new report claims that Beyonce has died due to excessive bleeding from the incident at the TIDAL X: 1015 concert, in which an earring ripped through her earlobe. We have all the important details after the jump.
What is going on?? Beyonce, 35, is apparently the latest victim of a celebrity death hoax, after a report surfaced claiming that she died due to “excessive bleeding.” The cause of her violent bleeding? The incident at the TIDAL X: 1015 festival in Brooklyn, NY on October 15, in which her earring ripped through her earlobe, causing a torrent of blood to pour down her face. Beyonce continued performing like a champ, but the report, which apparently circulated via Facebook, according to Aussie Network News, said that she bled to death afterward. Insane!
The website did not include a link to the Facebook page spreading the death hoax, allegedly called “RIP Beyonce”, but said that it gained one million likes on October 18 when it posted the terrifying news: “At about 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday (October 18, 2016), our beloved singer Beyoncé passed away. Beyoncé was born on September 4, 1981 in Houston. She will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
So did the “RIP Beyonce” page get shut down when people realized this was a total hoax? Because thankfully, Beyonce is alive! Her reps confirmed that she is totally fine, telling the site MediaMass that “She joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. She’s still alive and well.” This is far from the first time false rumors have spread about Beyonce dying. She was the victim of death hoaxes in 2012, and again in February 2015. Horrifying!
