A representative for Eddie Murphy has dismissed gossip the star passed away following a snowboarding accident, the latest in a new round of celebrity death hoaxes.
The actor suffered fatal injuries during a Christmas skiing trip in Switzerland, according to the crazy online story, but Murphy’s spokesperson has moved swiftly to dismiss the shock speculation.

The rep tells EW.com, “Absolutely false. I just spoke with him.”

Aretha Franklin, Aaron Carter, Charlie Sheen and Adam Sandler have also been at the centre of fictional death reports in the past week. Sandler was also reportedly the victim of a skiing-related accident in Switzerland.
