Don’t worry – the dog whisperer (aka Cesar Millan) isn’t dead. But if you’re constantly reading what’s trending on the internet, you may have believed that this 45-year-old TV personality kicked the bucket Wednesday morning (Dec. 3).

Following a post from the Spanish language news website Unam Noticias, which stated that Millan had suffered a massive heart attack and died early Wednesday morning, stories of his alleged death went viral. The website went so far as to claim that Millan’s wife held a press conference to express her shock and grief.

Thankfully, the awful news turned out to be nothing more than a hoax. While Millan did have a suicide attempt in 2010 following the double whammy of his dog Daddy dying and his first wife filing for divorce, we’re happy to report that he is alive and well. That’s right, Cesar Millan is still whispering to dogs everywhere, “Your pack leader is safe.”

With yet another famous person’s false passing for the books, we decided to take a look back at some of the biggest celebrity death hoaxes of the past few years.

Did you fall for any of these?
