Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months.
Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major American network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actress of Miley Cyrus' stature would be major news across networks.
People who have been around them recently say the relationship is highly charged, not so much romantic as full-on lust.
And as usual, Twittersphere was frenzied over the death hoax. Cyrus seemed to be enjoying a day at the beach with bestie Katy Weaver, but in typical Miley fashion, their outing was anything but dull."stay fun or be lame #turntmermaid," the newly announced VMA host captioned a naked pic of herself lying on the beach with what appears to be a marijuana joint in her right hand. The 22-year-old pop star, who is no stranger to posing nude and is apparently a big fan of her birthday suit, took to the photo-sharing site on Wednesday to share a handful of naked pics which feature strategically placed stickers on her lady parts in order to abide by the Instagram's guidelines. Selena Gomez is a singer, a dancer, an actress and a semi-nude Instagram sensation, and it's easy to see why: She's beautiful! When she first rose to fame through on Disney, Gomez famously dated Nick Jonas -- and the Jonas Brother didn't want anyone to know about it.Later, she famously moved on to Justin Bieber, with whom she's been off and on since 2010, and it has gotten pretty ugly at times.
