In short, Labelle is alive and kicking. The conversation about LaBelle’s alleged death got underway Friday after a RIP Patti LaBelle page attracted nearly a million likes.
Those who believed, in their defense, had been given a rather believable account of LaBelle’s demise.
“At around 11 a.m. ET on Friday (March 3, 2023), our beloved singer Patti LaBelle passed away. Patti LaBelle was born on May 24, 1944 in Philadelphia. She will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting and liking this page.

However, there were also some groups of people who were skeptical of the report. The news, of course, was not coming from a major US news portal.
The death bluff apparently got so serious that even LaBelle’s reps had to stand up and say:
The mother of Zurie Kye Edwards joins the long list of celebrities who have fallen victim to this hoax. She’s still alive, don’t believe what you see on the internet.
Those who didn’t believe the news from the start expressed their anger at the bogus report, noting that it was reckless, upsetting and hurtful to fans of the beloved singer.
What is Patti LaBelle doing now; Is she married?
LaBelle last appeared in the media story in early February 2023. Back then the Lady Marmalade singer told a little about her personal life. LaBelle said she was open to dating again at age 78.
During one of the episodes of The Jennifer Hudson Show in 2023, LaBelle said:
I do have a nice person in mind.
Immediately after Hudson asked Patti if she was open to dating, the Philadelphia native said:
Well, quite. How old am I? 78
LaBelle also mentioned her previous marriage to Armstead Edwards. They were husband and wife for 32 years.
Patti then talked about her feeling of finding happiness for herself “different from what I used to have with him, which was great.”
LaBelle also added that she was too good to be solo. The R&B artist then said she had a potential love interest on her radar who she said was nice. However, Patti refrained from disclosing his name.
