Rumors of the singer’s alleged demise gained traction on Wednesday after a ‘R.I.P. Sarah Geronimo’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the Filipino singer’s passing:

Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Filipino network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of a singer of Sarah Geronimo's stature would be major news across networks.

A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that 71% still think false Sarah Geronimo death rumors are funny.
