NEW YORK - Sony Music Entertainment's Twitter account was hacked on Monday, publishing fake statements that pop music icon Britney Spears had died.

Sony Music, a unit of Sony Corp., said in a short statement that its social media account was "compromised" but that the situation "has been rectified."

The company said it "apologizes to Britney Spears and her fans for any confusion."

A Sony spokeswoman refused to comment further. A Twitter spokesman did not return emails seeking comment.

The 35-year-old international superstar and Grammy Award winner is "is fine and well," Spears' manager Adam Leber told CNN.
