LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Lady Gaga is not dead. Lady Gaga fake hotel death stories ignited online last night. Today, the fake hotel death tales are spiraling out of control, fueled not but a single dubious website but multiple authors attempting to trick fans. While it remains unclear if any of these authors are linked in a concerted effort to falsely report the celebrity’s death, the timing is certainly suspect.
Lady Gaga was not found dead in a hotel today or Wednesday night. But suddenly, a series of websites began to report the same, through but a mixture of fake stories and false images. The effort to falsely report Gaga’s death today is prompting concerns, not just for her fans, but for others who are now worried that death reports have begun to spiral downward.
Usually when a fake death report surfaces, it is the work of one website. The allegations are usually so outrageous that on their face they appear to be unbelievable. There is nothing believable about a fake report claiming your celebrity fell off a cliff hiking in New Zealand yesterday, while you knew they were in concert elsewhere the same time.
For example, Global Associated has written its own fake death report about Lady Gaga. In it, it claims that Lady Gaga died in a jet-ski crash in the Turks and Caicos Islands. “Lady Gaga was the only passenger on the personal watercraft at the time of the incident” claims the fake report.
But the website disclaims the story at the bottom as false. In small print, the website adds ” this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes”.

But today’s fake Lady Gaga hotel death story is not the work of Global Associated. Rather, multiple websites, and twitter accounts, are being employed for the effort. But did they work in conjunction with one another?
First, there is a twitpic image being sent virally that shows a thumbnail images of British news anchors. Alongside it reads “Breaking, Lady Gaga Found Dead in Hotel Room”. Below the image is the website of a notable British news agency. Added is the sentence “This is the most awful day in the U.S. history.” Of course, why would a British news site state it’s awful news for U.S. history?

Many fans have fallen for the fake death report today. “[I] called mom immediately when I got home. And she told me that Lady Gaga was found dead in a hotel room. Evening news!” wrote one fan one hour ago. At least two other webpages are additionally false reporting the same fake story.
David Guetta, Adam Sandler, and Lady Gaga are not dead. Ironically, today’s fake report about Gaga surfaced less than three days after a false death report about Akon.
