Monday afternoon, social media sites started buzzing amidst reports that rocker Jon Bon Jovi died from a heart attack. While the origins of the hoax haven't been noted, Gossip Cop comes to the rescue once again to share that this is yet another prank and Bon Jovi is just fine.
The site shares that this celebrity death hoax picked up steam on Twitter, which is frequently the case these days. The story was that Jon Bon Jovi was found in a New Jersey hotel in a coma, and was rushed to the hospital where he "suffered cardiac arrest." This story is, however, completely fabricated. Jon is fine and has not suffered any kind of medical emergency.
It can be hard to tell these days when serious things do happen to celebrities, thanks to the pranksters who find these celebrity death hoaxes so amusing. Jon Bon Jovi joins the ranks of stars such as Eddie Murphy, Charlie Sheen, Scott Baio, and Lady Gaga, all of whom have recently been the subjects of similar false reports.
