Madonna reportedly passed away after the topic “RIP Madonna” began trending on Twitter.
The news started as a prank to coincide with the funeral of the late Whitney Houston, which is taking place in New Jersey this afternoon (February 18).
The ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer passed away at the age of 48 while staying at the Beverly Hilton hotel last Saturday (February 11).
Sources said that the trend was sparked by fans of Lady GaGa, who has long been accused of trying to model herself on Madonna.
