Cyrus silences death hoax

Pop star Miley Cyrus has debunked Internet rumours about her "death" by posting a topless photo of herself on Instagram.

An advertising scam on Facebook over the weekend encouraged users to click on a headline which read, "(SHOCKING) Miley Cyrus Found Dead in Her Los Angeles Home! Country singer Miley Cyrus found overdosed this afternoon in her Los Angeles home."

Once clicked, the post directed readers to a hoax site about completing surveys for money.

A number of Cyrus' fans fell for the fake rumours, which were given weight by the fact the singer had not reached out to her Twitter followers since Friday.

However, the Wrecking Ball hitmaker put the unfounded claims to rest on Monday when she shared a series of photos on Instagram, including a snap of herself topless, with her back to the camera, wearing just a pair of denim shorts.
