There have been stories circulating recently that Angelina Jolie has died including that she committed suicide because of her divorce from Brad Pitt. The fans of this beloved actress have had a strong response to this news.
However, this is just one of many death hoaxes that have been created by internet trolls recently. One scam website started this rumor but making a claim that it had posted a video of Angelina saying her goodbyes to her fans right before she took her life. The reports that stemmed from this claimed that she had died a few days earlier.
The tagline of the post was: “CNN Video Footage: Angelina Jolie Says Goodbye to Her Fans and to Brad Pitt Before Doing This Suicidal.” It seems that the website that was spreading this story because they wanted to get a lot of hits.
This particular death hoax used many URLs, which happen to be linked to different applications on Facebook. Many other celebrities have been victims of similar death hoaxes recently, including Vin Diesel, Nicolas Cage, Jim Carrey, John Cena, and Jaden Smith.
In truth, Angelina Jolie is very much alive, and her marriage to Brad Pitt is still very much intact. Though rumors are circulating about a divorce on the horizon, this does not appear to be the case at all. In fact, the couple is planning to adopt a seventh child together. There are pictures online of them being very affectionate with one another in public. Perhaps, then, it’s a good idea not to believe every rumor you read on the Internet.
