Celine Dion is not dead, hoax spreading on Facebook

Depending upon the hoax Facebook post you read, singer Celine Dion has died in a car crash or a plane crash.

The reports are not true and Dion says they are making her a little mad.

"Sometimes it's freaky because I have to call my family about it," she told Digital Spy .  "I was celebrating the birthday of my twins in Montreal and I was getting these phone calls saying there was stuff on Facebook that I was dead."

One story claimed that she had died in a car crash, while another stated it was a plane crash.

The Facebook posts link to a rogue Facebook app that Facebook has been shutting down as it gets reports of it.  Some of the posts bear well-known news logos to entice people to click. Do not click on any Facebook post that links to the purported story of her death.
