Vanilla Ice Dead? Not at All, Hoax Be Damned!

by at . Comments

Someone must not have liked his cameo in That's My Boy.

Vanilla Ice is not dead, despite a hoax that suggested he rolled his car and perished this morning. The Iceman confirms he is among the living!

The "Ice Ice Baby" rapper took to his Twitter page this morning to smack down rumors spreading on social media that he died in a car wreck:

"I don't know who's spreading this rumor about me dying in a car crash but - IM ALIVE!! I have like 30 texts, from mom family and friends," he said.

The culprit behind this latest celebrity death hoax is the time-honored Global Associated News, the notorious site responsible for generating fake news.

Eddie Murphy, Charlie Sheen, Jeff Goldblum, Jon Bon Jovi and others have been facetiously offed by the site in recent years for no reason at all.

In Vanilla Ice's case, its bogus report alleged the 44-year-old hip-hopster "died in a single vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell."

That should've been a giveaway right there, he was killed somewhere between New Jersey and New Mexico? That's hard-hitting journalism for you!

Per the rumor, Ice (real name Robert Van Winkle) lost control while driving a pal's car at 95 m.p.h. and rolled over several times, dying on impact.

Drugs and alcohol were NOT involved at least. Phew.
