A representative for Adam Sandler has slammed internet gossip suggesting the star died on Tuesday, December 28. The funnyman passed away after suffering fatal injuries during a Christmas skiing trip in Switzerland, according to the crazy online story, but Sandler's spokesperson has moved swiftly to dismiss the shock speculation.
The rep tells GossipCop.com, "It's completely not true and such irresponsible journalism." Sandler is the latest star who has had to respond to a Christmas death hoax - publicists representing Aretha Franklin, actor Charlie Sheen and singer Aaron Carter have also spoken out to clear up upsetting fictional reports.
Sandler has a movie to promote when the year turns. Starring opposite Jennifer Aniston, he is a plastic surgeon in "Just Go With It" who enlists his loyal assistant to pretend to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie. The pic is released in the U.S. on February 11, 2011.
