A fake report created by pranksters that claimed “Hannah Montana” star Miley Cyrus died in a car accident Friday morning was proven to be a hoax, as MyFOXLA learned that the teen was alive and healthy Sunday.
According to MyFOXLA, the report was made up to look like a Yahoo News post via Reuters and was then posted on the Wikipedia entry for Miley Cyrus. The story circulated quickly Friday, despite the fact that the teen star performed at New York’s Fashion Week “Fashion Rocks” later that day.
The report, which contained numerous misspellings, showed a fake screenshot of the star and claimed that the teen star was on her way to film scenes for "Hannah Montana" when her vehicle collided with a large truck.
MyFOXLA denied the rumor, noting that Cyrus is “alive and kicking.”
