Cher is alive and well! And looks like the icon has become yet another victim in the social media realm when a death hoax spread like wildfire last night on Twitter. 

According to GossipCop, "RIP Cher" became a trending topic which of course, created more tweets and condolences for the star.
Cher isn't the only celeb who fell victim to faux stories. Earlier this month Rihanna was apparently "killed" and several weeks ago a Jon Bon Jovi rumor spread as well. The New Jersey native put the story to bed by posting a photo on Facebook indicating, "Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey."
