Is Cher Dead?
“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 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.”
We are pretty confident that Cher is alive and well — and probably getting her beauty rest about now, but we have an email out to her rep to be sure.
