Did Rachel from the "Boyfriend" video pass away?


It seems like every girl Justin Bieber associates with becomes of victim of something!

Just ask Rachel Barnes, the girl who was lucky enough to score the role in Justin's "Boyfriend"video.

She recently became the latest Twitter death hoax victim after #RIPRachel started to trend on the social media website.

According to some of the tweets, Barnes succumbed to cancer. Twitter-ers quickly started tweeting her their condolences.

"Rachel Barnes, the girl who played in the Boyfriend video died from cancer today. She's got all our love. May she rest in peace," one tweeter wrote.

Totally not being true, Rachel had to shut down the death rumors and confirm she was still with us.

"Glad I'm alive too," she wrote on her Instagram page while responding to a tweet.

A day later, she posted a photo of her flipping the bird with the caption, "feeling feisty."
