Conflicting reports regarding the alleged death of Joselyn Cano, a 29-year-old Instagram model, have surfaced.

Fellow Instagram model Lira Mercer said Cano died on Twitter. Mercer suggested Cano, who has more than 12 million followers on Instagram, died during a plastic surgery procedure. “Omg Joselyn Cano died in Colombia getting surgery. That’s wild,” Mercer tweeted on Dec. 12.

And, according to Deaddeath, Cano passed away on Dec. 7.

“She looked so good already wow prayers for her family she was so sweet,” Mercer later added.

Fans reacted to the news with shock and are assuming Cano died in Peru after a botched cosmetic butt-lift procedure. “What the fuck? Joselyn Cano died from getting a bbl in Peru? That shit is crazy,” one user wrote.

“Joselyn Cano passed away from getting a bbl in Columbia this is why I get so scared,” another said.

No official sources, such as her family, have confirmed her death, leading many to believe she isn’t dead. Many are also pointing out that as of Dec. 15, she still seems to be active on OnlyFans. “There seems to be conflicting reports since late last night, hopefully it’s not true.. Her Onlyfans account was active earlier today. I haven’t really [seen] much confirmation anywhere else,” user Cosmetic Lane tweeted.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Cano lives in Newport Beach, California, and attended San Diego State University, where she studied microbiology. Cano is also known as “the Mexican Kim Kardashian” due to having a Kardashian-esque physique.
