(KGTV) — The gossip website Hollywood Unlocked published a story Tuesday claiming to have received exclusive intelligence that Queen Elizabeth had died.
The Queen is battling a case of Covid-19, but the story is fiction.
According to the Associated Press, the 95-year-old Queen spoke on the phone with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday.
On Thursday, Buckingham Palace reported the queen is experiencing cold-like symptoms.
Hollywood Unlocked CEO Jason Lee has now taken down some of his social media posts defending the false story.
