Rumors of the television host’s alleged demise gained traction on Saturday after a ‘R.I.P. Belén Esteban’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the Spanish television host’s passing:

At about 11 a.m. ET on Saturday (September 19, 2020), our beloved television host Belén Esteban passed away. Belén Esteban was born on November 9, 1973 in Madrid. She will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.

Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Spanish network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of a television host of Belén Esteban's stature would be major news across networks.

A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (89%) of respondents think those Belén Esteban death rumors are not funny anymore.
