Eminem Car Crash a “Twitter Rumor” Says Manager

Earlier today (August 17) and yesterday popular social network site Twitter was abuzz with claims that rap superstar Eminem had died in a car crash.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Eminem is in fact alive and well and the reports were just “Twitter rumors” in the words of Shady’s longtime manager Paul Rosenberg. Yet it seems as if the first web posting about the Detroit lyricist’s alleged accident appeared on Yahoo News. In the story, which has since been removed, Em was on his cell phone before succumbing to “a terrible car crash.” The false article included quotes from a doctor named “Dr. Adams.”

Em isn’t the only hip-hop artist to have rumors spread about his death on the net. Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and Nate Dogg have all been victims of similar false reports. –Max G
