Bruno Mars is dead. At least that's what the internet is saying. However, the singer didn't die. He's just the victim of a car crash internet death hoax. Bruno Mars is just fine.

A report appeared on Sunday saying that Bruno Mars died in a car crash. Global Associated News, or Local Team News 9, said that he died in a single vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell on November 28. The report says that Bruno Mars lost control of the vehicle and rolled the car, killing him instantly. It then says that memorial service plans will be announced and that he will have a closed casket due to head trauma.

The report is false. Bruno Mars didn't die in a car crash. Since there are so many details to the accident, it's easy to believe that its real, but Global Associated News creates fake news reports.

 A message at the bottom of the site reads: "FAKE... THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! 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!"

Global Associated News allows people to enter a celebrity name into a generator, which then creates a fake news story about their death. Other celebrities have died in the same exact car crash before. Some recent ones include Tony Hawk, Kobe Byant, Jerry Springer, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller.

If that wasn't enough proof that he's still alive, the singer has been tweeting on his Twitter account. He didn't mention the death hoax, but he seems to be doing pretty well as he thanked his fans for all of the support that he received for his latest album.

Yet some users on Twitter believe the rumor and now fans are mourning and questioning the death of the "Locked Out of Heaven" singer.

Some examples of tweets include:

" My little sister found on google that Bruno Mars died in a car wreck!! :("
" Bruno mars died this morning???"
" If Bruno Mars is dead I will cry ): #wahhhh"
" Bruno Mars died RIP"

This isn't the first time the internet has tried to kill off Bruno Mars. This same death hoax was going around this time last year.

Internet death hoaxes have become a trend this year. Some other celebrities who became victims of a death hoax in recent months include actor Vin Diesel, musician Skrillex, Rapper Lil Wayne, Actor Vince Vaughn, Tom Kenny, the voice behind SpongeBob Squarepants, country singer Taylor Swift, legendary actor Morgan Freeman, Comedian Bill Cosby, Alfonso Ribeiro aka Carlton from the Fresh Prince, and Bill Nye the Science Guy. All of these celebrities are just fine.
