London: Rapper Missy Elliot has assured fans she is alive and well after false reports of her death began circulating online.

The 40-year-old was outraged after a story emerged online suggesting she had passed away. This is the second time she has been targeted by death hoax pranksters this year, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I`m great people for all who keep asking! Alive and well! Sadly sum1 (someone) was that miserable to make up such a cruel rumour! It makes me work harder (to) make `em mad! I`m done addressing the foolishness! I`m alive! God will deal with those who play about (with) things like that!" Elliot posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
