Fans of Logan Paul have been freaking out over rumors he will make a big comeback with appearances on "Ellen" and "Dr. Phil," but representatives for both shows told BuzzFeed News he is not scheduled to be on either.

The rumors began after a video from DramaAlert, a YouTube channel hosted by a man who is known as Keemstar. Keemstar makes videos about the latest in the chaotic realm of internet celebrity.

In a video on Friday, Keemstar said another vlogger, Mike Majlak, was filming in Logan Paul's home and filmed footage of a whiteboard titled "Action Plan."

"If you look closely on the whiteboard you can clearly see on Wednesday, it says gradually return to YouTube," Keemstar says.

The footage again cuts to the whiteboard as he says: "Apparently he's gonna be on the Ellen Show." Keemstar also said it was rumored Paul was going to appear on Dr. Phil.

Paul's camp did not return BuzzFeed News' request for comment about his return and his possible appearance on these shows. YouTube, similarly, did not respond to a request for comment.

The "Logangsters," were alerted to the Keemstar video and began to lose it.

An account called "Logang For Life," uploaded the clip from the vlog and people were insanely excited.

But sorry Logang, neither appearance is happening, at least at this point. Representative Melissa Little Padgitt of "Ellen" told BuzzFeed News in a statement that Logan Paul is not booked to be a guest.

Jerry J. Sharell, Executive Director of Communications on Dr. Phil, told BuzzFeed News "this is not true" about a possible Paul appearance.

BuzzFeed News followed up to ask if there are current, ongoing discussions

Still, as of Sunday morning, fans and internet sleuths are flooding Ellen's mentions and creating new, fake information surrounding the rumor. One fan page went so far as to broadcast a time for Paul's "appearance" on the show.

MAKE SURE TO TUNE IN AT 7:40 ON ELLEN ON WEDNESDAY!!!! LOGAN WILL MAKE AN APPEARANCE!! #saveloganpaul #savelogang… https://t.co/KomfCtfUyL

Those not in the "Logang" were @-ing "Ellen" and spamming their mentions—taking issue with what they think is Paul's upcoming appearance.

Sorry, Logang, looks like his return will have to be recalculated. And everyone else, stop freaking out!
