Trans Big Brother star Rebekah Shelton is not dead, as she confirms in a video she was a victim of hacking.
"This person can't accept the fact that I am happy, that I overcame all my problems". I'm on holiday, I'm in Arabia.
Former Big Brother contestant Rebekah Shelton has died aged 32.
On Rebekah's Twitter profile, she wrote her in bio: "Reality star, Big Brother UK as Rodrigo".
Her latest tweet said: 'I'm not dead! Friends and family of Rodrigo have been frantic this morning.
She underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2014.
In 2016, she appeared on ITV's Judge Rinder show (similar to Judge Judy in the US), and talked about her transition. And she achieved so much through her transition'.More news: MoneyGram pilot is important real-world test for Ripple's payments plan

Ms Shelton has since deleted the message and posted a video on her Twitter page this afternoon to say she had been "hacked".
"We're sorry to inform everyone of the sad news that our wonderful and lovely Rebekah died unexpectedly on Wednesday night", a tweet from her personal account read. It's not easy to be a different person.
Of being abandoned after undergoing surgery, she said: "I wanted to kill myself, it was a nightmare".
Rebekah also previously admitted that she had turned to prostitution after being forced to leave her home in Brazil and candidly spoke about having suicidal thoughts after falling out with her friends and family.
She said she'd spent a month in hospital and had little support from her family during her initial surgical transition process, leaving her feel very alone and isolated. "We haven't spoken for six months because I've made a decision to leave, but that was the turning point".
"It was a big step to go full time as a woman".
"I saw that disgusting thing between my legs and I started crying around the hospital saying, 'I regret, I regret.' I wanted to kill myself because it was a nightmare".
