However, after the videos were shown to be making unfounded allegations, it appears the 58-year-old was the victim of an online hoax.

What precipitated the shockingly false allegations of her demise is unknown.

“Do not believe YouTube about Melissa Gilbert! All evidence suggests it is bogus information for clickbait,” one irate fan commented.

After the claims, Melissa posted a number of images to Instagram.

She added that she had recently returned to New York City after visiting Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the caption.

It follows the tragic death of Will & Grace actress Leslie Jordan, 67, who was involved in a terrible vehicle accident on October 24, 2022, in Los Angeles.
