Pawn Stars star Chumlee is the latest celebrity to fall victim of a death hoax.

The reality star, real name Austin Russell, is is not dead despite a tabloid report.

Taking to Twitter to prove he's a live and well, Chumlee wrote Wednesday, "May we live long, Rich forever."

Condolences on social media were sent out to Chumlee and his family Wednesday afternoon after a website EBuzzd published a story that the 31-year-old had passed of a heart attack.

The site later retracted their reporting, adding to the post, "We'd like to update our story ... It appears that our sources were incorrect and as fans of Chumlee, we are happy to report that he is alive and well."

Rick Harrison, Russell's boss and co-star, also tweeted: "Breaking news: CHUMLEE IS ALIVE & WELL! He is actually filming today but we all really appreciate everyone's concern!"
