As if Paula Deen hasn't garnered enough negative attention lately, she is now the newest addition to the ever-growing group of celebrities to become victims of a celebrity death hoax.

This newest death hoax is especially cruel, claiming that she died in June after her stomach ruptured, leaving a suicide note. The hoax claims the note "outlined her intention to eat herself to death" and also had racial epithets.

The hoax lists a fake police report that claims police said Deen ate hundreds of her own pre-packaged desserts. It even includes a quote from the "police."

"We aren't sure whether or not Deen suffered from a fatal stroke related to her diabetes before or after her stomach burst," the fake police are reported as saying. "Coroners have said it's possible that she first died from eating too much sugar, and then suffered the stomach rupture post mortem."

The fake story was originally posted on a site called the Internet Chronicle, which has a strange description on their "About" page.

"At the Chronicle.SU, we take truth seriously," the site reads. "Sadly, chronicle.su is not of this earth.

"After crash landing in an asteroid December 30th, 1976, the alien husks of Chronicle editors rapidly adapted to Earth climates and bacterial flora," the site continues. "They are able to survive naturally in the wild and reproduce freely."

People have posted questions regarding the validity of reports that Deen is dead on Wiki Answers and Cha Cha, web sites that allow people to ask any general questions, which are then open to the public for answers.

The fake story was picked up by multiple web sites that reported it as real. The false death reports have become so common that there is a web site dedicated to clearing them up for worried and confused fans, Who's Alive and Who's Dead.

Previous victims of celebrity death hoaxes include Justin Timberlake, Kristen StewartAdam Sandler, Angelina Jolie, Amanda Bynes, Bill Cosby, Hillary Clinton and Nelson Mandela.
