Is Cher Dead?

Posted on January 27th, 2012 at 1:13 am

"RIP Cher" was trending on Twitter Thursday night and took on a life of it's own.

It even got Kim Kardashian whipped into a frenzy causing her to tweet, "Did I just hear Cher has passed away? Is this real? OMG"

Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger was duped too tweeting "Is this for real? I don't see it anywhere."

Kim added "I hope this is a twitter joke and not true. I don't see it on the news anywhere. I'm praying its not true..."

From what we can tell Kim was right on track -- it was an extremely UNFUNNY Twitter joke.

It appears the "RIP Cher" trend on Twitter may have been started by a user by the name "@Lorraine_Star," who faked a retweet from CNN.

Her bogus tweet read, "RT @CNN: American recording artist Cher dies at 65 years old. Found dead in Malibu home."

Cher's good friend -- Jewelry Designer Loree Rodkin set the record straight tweeting, "It's a hoax. She's fine."

UPDATE: Cher's publicist also tells RumorFix "She's fine!"

      What kind of sick jerks are out there???!  I think that Cher has had more than her share of hard knocks in her life, to not have to hear this kind of crap that people start.  She’s a great person that deserves only good things to happen for her and Chaz.
      The best to you Cher!

      that is toooo sick!!!!!!!!!!  The person who started it should be charged.  I have been a longtime Cher fan.  Thank God Cher is fine.  I am also sure if someone was to say it, her children or sister would break the news to us.  Keep Rocking, enjoyin life Cher!!!!
