Has the QE2 been sold for scrap

Disturbing news are once again circulating giving us account of the QE2 being sold for scrap to Chinese interests, I am still hopeful this will not materialize and are just rumours, it cannot be considered shocking news, the future of the ship has been on balance since she left her home port of Southampton back in November of 2008. Whichever way we look at it and understanding how difficult it is to preserve a ship this size as an hotel, conference and museum centre, I believe if she goes this would be a crime against Maritime History and the Shipping World.
