"Don't bury me. I'm not dead!"

These 29 stars were said to have passed away, but they were alive. As long as there have been celebrities, there have been death hoaxes. There are people who still believe that Elvis and Jim Morrison are alive, but what about stars who are still alive and have to deal with rumors that they have passed away? Taylor Swift apparently died twice in 2009, but no one told the singer. Beyoncé was said to have passed away after a fan ripped out one of her earrings during a concert and the singer refused to seek medical attention. It was falsely reported in 2014 that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson lost his life while filming a stunt on the set of Furious 7. Two Dallas DJs announced that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake had lost their lives in a car accident during the time when they were dating. The Associated Press accidentally published a Bob Hope obituary in 1998, five years before he actually passed away at the age of 100. Lindsay Lohan has been dying slowly in front of the paparazzi cameras for years, but a Wikipedia prankster cited a nonexistent E! News story in 2011 that claimed she had gone to that big yacht party in the sky.

Other stars who had false death rumors swirling around them include Cher, Miley Cyrus, Morgan Freeman, Jack Black, Will Ferrell, Kanye West, Michael Jordan, Steve Jobs and many more. Did you believe any of the following celebrity death hoaxes? Get Started
