Someone started a vicious rumor yesterday. The rumor in question purported that singer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jon Bon Jovi[/lastfm], 49, had died. Reps for Bon Jovi, and even the man himself, would like everyone to know that he is very much still alive.
Jon Bon Jovi is the latest victim of a celebrity death hoax that seems to keep floating around. Denzel Washington, Missy Elliot, Tom Cruise, and Eddie Murphy have all fallen victim to some of the recent hoaxes, according to E! Online.
Of course, the news of Bon Jovi’s death spread like wildfire across Twitter. The singer took to Facebook to dispell the rumors by posting a picture. A tweet on Bon Jovi’s Twitter page says, “‘Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey’ -jbj. Rest assured that Jon is fine!”
He wasn’t “shot through the heart.” He didn’t go down “in a blaze of glory.” Jon Bon Jovi is still very much “livin’ on a prayer.”
