AceShowbiz - %cBlake Shelton% is not dead. Contrary to the inaccurate story, the 40-year-old country singer is alive and well. He falls victim to death hoax after a "R.I.P. Blake Shelton" page was created on Facebook on Tuesday, March 28.
The fake Facebook page gave details about the time when Shelton died as it encouraged fans to leave their memories and tributes to "The Voice" coach. "At about 11 A.M. ET on Tuesday (March 28, 2017), our beloved singer Blake Shelton passed away," the page read. "Blake Shelton was born on June 18, 1976 in Ada. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page."
Though the fake Facebook page has now been removed from the social media site, Shelton's death report still garners widespread attention as hundreds of fans mourn the singer on social media. Proving that he's alive, Shelton took to Twitter on Wednesday, March 29 to respond to the death hoax. "Well s**t...," so he wrote after a fan tweeted him a screengrab of an article headline that read, "Blake is gone 1976 - 2017."
