Being reported to have died of cardiac arrest during a world tour concert, the Bon Jovi lead singer assures fans he's alive and well by posting a photo of him holding up the sign on Facebook.
Jon Bon Jovi gets creative when squashing his death rumors. After news of his demise surfaced online, the lead singer of Bon Jovi puts up photo of himself standing in front of an ornamented Christmas tree while holding up a sign that read, "Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey."
The sign Jon holds also included the date and time the snapshot was taken, which is December 19, 2011 at 6 P.M. The photo itself was posted on the Facebook page of the 49-year-old rocker's band along with a message that reads, "Rest assured that Jon is alive and well! This photo was just taken."
Earlier on Monday, a website called "dailynewbloginternational" came out with a report that Jon has died of cardiac arrest. It detailed that the rocker was found unconscious in a room at the Empress Hotel in Asbury Park, New Jersey after a world tour concert, and was taken to Jersey Shore Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Los Angeles Times' L.A. Now blog later mentioned that the fake report on Jon's death by dailynewbloginternational seemed to "have copied" some of the sentences from the Times' 2009 story on the death of Michael Jackson.
