Oh no! On Jan. 8, Twitter went crazy with messages that the 19-year-old singer had died in a car accident. So is there any truth to these tweets?
Fans talking about Justin Bieber is nothing new, but now they’re talking about not-so-happy news. “RIP Justin Bieber. No one should go that early,” is what many of the tweets read — so what is the photo attached?
Is Justin Bieber Dead?
While we’re used to seeing Lil’ Wayne the rumor was spread with the following image attached to it:

So, it’s all for retweets! Yes you are seeing that right. We reached out to Justin’s camp for comment and they said nothing — they’re probably used to this kind of thing! He’s so famous that people will make up anything just to talk about him!
Whoever came up with this sick rumor not only got it trending, but also made up that he died in a car accident in his Ferrari! Talk about dark! Of course, they want people to retweet it to just scare girls, as the pic shows.
We know that Beliebers are some of the most devoted fans out there. When a rumor hit the web that the Biebs was diagnosed with cancer, “#baldforbieber” began trending, inspiring girls to actually shave their heads for his sake.
Well, it’s definitely working again, because people are going absolutely crazy on Twitter!
Here are some of the reactions from heartbroken fans:
R.I.P justin bieber, you will be well missed😭😭

RIP Justin Bieber. CNN reports that he died asphyxiated in a closet, because he never came out of it.

HollywoodLifers, do you think the rumor was funny to get girls to retweet it? Or was it mean?
