Celebrities know they’ve grabbed a piece of pop culture when the internet spreads stories that you’ve gone to the great yonder. Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch Kris Jenner can now add herself to that list.

On Monday evening, Twitter was aflutter with the rumor that Jenner had died and daughter Kim Kardashian took to her account to squelch the false news.

“The awkward moment when ‘RIP Kris Jenner’ is trending yet I’m the phone with her! LOL,” the reality star and burgeoning actress tweets.

What may have caused the Kardashian mom’s purported death rumors?

If you watch the family’s E! show, Jenner is absolutely a workaholic and she’s usually glued to her mobile phone. So possibly when Khloe joked about not hearing from her mom in a while, people jumped to conclusions? But, apparently, she was just deep into a much-needed vacation, which she wrote about on her official Celebuzz blog.

Khloe Kardashian tweeted a photo to prove it and said, “She leaves her mark everywhere! LOL.”

So rest assured, Kardashian dolls, Kris Jenner is very much alive – she’s just trying to relax a bit.

Other stars falsely pronounced dead by the internet include Robert Pattinson, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Mariah Carey and Eddie Murphy. So, Jenner is in good company — as morbid as this whole thing is.
