Don’t Worry, Shaggy Is Not Dead

Someone edited the singer Shaggy’s Wikipedia page and changed it to say he died after being stabbed in a bar fight. Mr. Boombastic, however, told TMZ he’s not dead. Phew.

1. “He has been reported as deceased on Janury 23, 2013 by Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. Reason of death has been specified as fatal injury on the liver caused in a bar fight.”

2. Which then spread to Twitter yesterday.

3. A rep for Shaggy, though, told TMZ that the singer is NOT DEAD.
