A story trending on Facebook saying actor Sylvester Stallone was found dead by his housekeeper in his Los Angeles home is not only wrong, but it apparently infected with a virus that can take control of your computer. Beware! DO NOT CLICK ON IT.
Stallone's brother. singer-songwriter Frank Stallone, took notice and posted a Facebook message to fans. "To all my fans and friends there is this rumor that my brother has died! It is totally false unless I was just speaking with a ghost. I would like to find the person who started this unfunny rumor and turn them into a ghost. We are fine and love you all. Frankie"
