Betty White is dead. At least that's what the Internet is saying. However the beloved 92-year-old actress didn't die. She's just the victim of an Internet death hoax. Betty White is just fine.

Rumors started swirling lately that the actress was found dead in a bath tub. A report by eBuzzd reads, "The 92-year-old Hollywood icon, wearing a white nightgown, was found submerged in the oval tub, face-up after hotel staff noticed the ceiling below her room was leaking. Investigators have little to comment at this time but have said there didn't seem to be foul-play involved.

A bottle of unopened prescription pills was found in the room, among other prescribed medicine.

White lived in an apartment in Hollywood's East Village, but had a membership to the exclusive club frequented by celebrities. The hotel has hosted stars like Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts.

A source close to the White family said there had been a small bedroom fire sparked by a candle at her home earlier in the week, and that may have led her to stay at the luxurious Hollywood hotel while remodeling is underway to repair the minor damaged sustained."

Since there are many details to the story, it may be easy to believe, but the report is false. If Betty White had actually died, it would be all over major news and entertainment sources. White may be 92, but she isn't dead. She recently appeared on WWE RAW.

Despite the rumors being false, it made fans very upset and many took to Twitter to question and mourn the loss of the beloved actress. Some examples of tweets include:

"OH LAWD!! RIP BETTY WHITE DEAD AT 92!"

"Wait.. Betty white is dead!?"

"I'm so upset Betty White has died, she was the cutest old lady"

"Damn RIP Betty White"
