Justin Bieber has fallen victim yet again to a death hoax, with the Internet killing off the "Sorry" singer in a Lamborghini car crash. According to the latest report, Bieber was found dead after the vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell.
The report, which appeared on justin.bieber.swellserver â€” which looks like a fake news site â€” claimed it has got complete details about the car crash. The website claimed the "What Do You Mean" singer was pronounced dead by paramedics responding to the accident and was apparently identified by a photo ID on his person.
The website also said Highway Safety Investigators told their reporters Bieber lost control while driving a friend's vehicle, which was speeding at 95 miles per hour (mph) in a 55-mph zone, and rolled several times, killing him instantly.
The report further stated: "Memorial services for Justin Bieber have not yet been announced. The service is expected to be a closed casket funeral due to the severe head trauma."
Soon after this, a "RIP Justin Bieber" message on a Facebook page went viral.
Hundreds of Bieber fans immediately started mourning and posting condolence messages on the Facebook page, which attracted nearly one million likes.
It goes without saying that even Twitterati went into a tizzy over this news. But when Kailash Kher tweeted (which looked like a spam message and was removed later) the news and expressed his shock, many wondered if it was just a hoax.
The "Where Are You" singer's rep finally cleared the air and said: "He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He's still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet. (sic)"
This is not the first time the Canadian singer has fallen prey to an Internet death hoax. Even in 2013 and 2014, death hoaxes had claimed Justin Bieber had died in a similar fashion.
