NO! Tina Turner is not DEAD!

I don't get where people get their gists from especially what goes on twitter. Tina Turner's supposed death was well twitted on Saturday even though she's alive and very well. We've heard so many stories of deaths of living people from twitter, even our own 2face, Ma Awolowo and even Mandela were not exempted. Na wao, abeg, people should check their facts before making our hearts break jor. 

Read the full gist from E!entertainment after the cut. 

What's Twitter got to do with it?
Tina Turner is the latest celeb to fall victim to the Twitterverse death hoax.
On Saturday, Twitter was abuzz with tweets that the 72-year-old songstress had passed away, with the rumor supposedly steaming from an "anticipated" obituary. However, the singer's rep denied the rumor and confirmed the "What's Love Got To Do With It" singer is still alive and well!

CNN's Deborah Feyerick also confirmed the iconic singer's status as being still among the living, tweeting: "She wasn't dead on Sunday, she wasn't dead on Thursday, she's not dead today. Someday this will be true, but not this week."
Tina's erroneous death report joins the long list of false alarms for stars such as Justin Bieber, Usher, Patrick Dempsey and Chris Brown.
