Make no mistake about it, legendary singer CHER is alive and well, despite rumors that started surfacing on Twitter early this morning.

News of Cher's supposed death became a hot topic overnight, and even fooled some celebrity tweeters like Kim Kardashian. Kim immediately sent a tweet to her millions of followers with the devastating news, but added that she hoped it was false... and indeed it was!

The tweeter who orginially posted the story falsely attributed the news to CNN, stating "American recording artist Cher dies at 65 years old. She was found dead in her Malibu home."

Once Kim Kardashioan realized that the story was a hoax, she immediately sent out another tweet saying " "Can't believe people would make up a sick joke like Cher died. These people need to get a life! Thanks twitter for clearing that up!"
