Some radio stations even carried the news as fact - but the singer's at home in New Jersey with her family...

A spokesperson for WHITNEY

HOUSTON has said the star is “fine” after rumours of her death swept across

America yesterday (September 13).

According to press reports this morning, a

rumour circulated the US yesterday (September 13), claiming the singer had died.

It is thought that some radio stations carried the news as fact.

However, the

star’s publicist Nancy Seltzer denied the rumours. She said in a

statement: “I’ve just spoken to Whitney.

She is perfectly fine and does not understand why, with everything going on in

the world right now, they have to find new rumours to dig up. She is home in

New Jersey with her family.”
