Add Usher to the lengthy list of celebrities who have been killed off via an Internet hoax. Earlier today, Global Associated News reported that the singer had been killed in a car crash in New Jersey.
“Usher died in a single vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell,” claimed the website. “He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics responding to the vehicle accident and was identified by photo ID found on his body.”
Fortunately, though, Gossip Cop confirms that Usher is alive and well. Global Associated News is quickly becoming infamous for killing off celebrities. Others who’ve fallen prey to the prank include Denzel Washington, Mariah Carey, Luke Perry and Eddie Murphy.
