VIDEO: Hackers Responsible for Britney Spears Death Hoax; Sony Music Responds

Over the weekend, tweets from Sony Music's Twitter account and Bob Dylan's Twitter account claimed that pop singer Britney Spears was dead. The false reports appear to suggest a connection to Ourmine, a group previously linked to Twitter hacks on major companies. Spears' representative immediately denied the reports.

Sony Music Entertainment has since released the following statement: Sony Music Entertainment's Twitter account was compromised. This has been rectified. Sony Music apologizes to Britney Spears and her fans for any confusion.

ABC's GOOD MORNING AMERICA shares further details on the hacking below.
