Eddie Murphy is not dead. Thank goodness. I don't know what I'd do without another cheesy Eddie Murphy Movie, for another girlfriend to force me to watch. Hollywood loves these rumors and they are usually spread via a gossip addicted blogosphere. But no need to worry. I'm personally confirming that Eddie Murphy is not dead.
"Fake celebrity deaths are usually the domain of slow news weekends, but for a change we have one mid-week, a rumor claiming that Eddie Murphy is dead.
The rumor claims that Eddie Murphy “was killed in an accident on the set of the film adaptation of the video game Left 4 Dead, currently filming in Los Angeles, CA.” The cause of death is attributed to to have been a special effects mishap.
The rumors date back over 12 months, and has come in a number of variations, although they normally include an accident on a film set of some sort.
While you could argue that Eddie Murphy’s career might be all but dead, the man himself is still 100% alive and kicking. We can never be 100% sure, but we’re definite on the call: chalk this up as another fake celebrity death." via Inquisitr
