Leona Lewis Death Hoax Rattles Twitter Fans

Waking up to find out the world thinks you’re dead must be disturbing to say the least – just ask Leona Lewis. The “Bleeding Love” songbird is the latest victim of an internet death hoax.

A joke that the 25-year-old waitress-turned-international singing star had passed away sent fans on Twitter into a frenzy on Thursday night.

One blogged: “Is Leona actually dead or is it just a rumour? Please tell me it’s not true. I feel like crying.” Another wrote: “Is Leona really dead? What a waste of talent.”

This isn’t the first celebrity death hoax to sweep the world’s fast-growing social networking site. Johnny Depp and Bill Cosby have both been the target of internet death jokes this year alone.
