Celebrity death hoaxes have seen an alarming rise lately, and Jennifer Lopez is the trend's latest victim.

On Monday (April14), the hashtag #RIPJenniferLopez began trending on Twitter, causing some fans of the "American Idol" judge to fear the worst, but rest assured, Jenny from the Block is still very much alive.

Shortly before her "death" began trending, JLo herself posted photos from her appearance at the GLADD Media Awards, where she was honored with the Vanguard Award.

Other celebrities who have fallen victim to the hoax over the last couple months include Justin Bieber, One Direction's Zayn Malik and "Pawn Stars" star Chumlee.
