This time around, the latest celebrity death rumor circulating on the internet is regarding Aretha Franklin, but it is just a hoax

It seems that this is the week for fake celebrity death news as Aretha Franklin has become the latest victim of these death hoaxes on the internet. Before this, Charlie Sheen, Aaron Carter and Morgan Freeman had been declared dead by these death hoaxes, but all of these news items were false.

Twitter was again buzzing today with the death news of Aretha Franklin, however, it was just false news and these rumors were denied by her rep. Earlier this month, Aretha Franklin was diagnosed with cancer but according to reports, she is doing fine now and is not dead!

Although the type of cancer has not been disclosed yet, it is being speculated that Aretha Franklin, the queen of soul music, is suffering from pancreatic cancer.
