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!”
