There’s a viral hoax saying Jasmine Tridevil, the “three-breasted woman,” has died is fake.

The bogus report was published on Huzlers.com, a satirical website.

The disclaimer for the site reads: “Huzlers.com is a combination of real shocking news and satirical entertainment to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief.”

The article, which has thousands of shares and “likes” on Facebook, says she was “found dead this morning.”

A few days ago, after the photos of her went viral, TMZ reported the whole thing is fake.

“But we got a document from the Tampa International Airport Police Dept. describing a baggage theft. According to the doc … someone stole a bunch of luggage off an American Airlines conveyor belt, including a black nylon roller bag,” the site said.

Inside the bag, according to TMZ, contained a “3 breast prosthesis.”

She told the police it was valued at about $5,000.

Hoax-debunking site Snopes.com also said the whole thing is fake, and wrote that Tridevil and Alisha Jasmine Hessler are probably the same person.

“Furthermore, an Alisha Jasmine Hessler was taken into custody in Hillsborough County, Florida on 14 March 2013, and subsequently charged with fraudulent use of personal information. And the Tampa television station (WTSP) that recently interviewed ‘Jasmine Tridevil’ reported that earlier in the month Alisha Hessler had filed a stolen baggage complaint at Tampa International Airport that listed a “3 breast prosthesis” among the items lost,” it said.

“In December 2013 Hessler made headlines for an incident in which she claimed she was beaten while on the way home from a club, then offered her attacker the choice of standing on a street corner wearing a dunce cap and holding a sign that read ‘I beat women’ rather than being reported to police and charged with a crime.”
