Another celebrity death hoax surfaced on Monday, this time trying to claim the life of Jon Bon Jovi.
A blog item suggested that the 49-year-old musician had died in New Jersey Monday - a posting that the Los Angeles Times says looks awfully familiar to their 2009 story on Michael Jackson's death - but the report was certainly erroneous.
His rep confirmed this, sending out a statement that the singer is alive, well, and still actively attending charity events, as he did last night in Red Bank, New Jersey.
By Monday evening, Bon Jovi turned to Facebook with photographic proof that he was fine.
"Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey" he jokes in the photo, courtesy of a handmade sign. The caption for the image promised fans, "Rest assured that Jon is alive and well! This photo was just taken."
Obviously he's never been to Camden
Never undderstood New Jersey jokes, untill I moved to florida and woke up how dirty ugly and weird its up there. Still, jersey def looks like heaven(if u r from Somalia lol..)
never believed this for a second, no way that bon jovi would ever be caught staying at the empress hotel in asbury when is house is 20 minutes away
@Bob, sorry but people are still listening. #1 albums still after all these years prove that.
Why would he need a publicity stunt?He is still popular,and far more famous than everyone posting here put together will ever achieve 4n our lifetimes.Enjoy Jersey Jon,the people knocking it,probably couldnt find it on a map anyhow.
I think that it is just mean and stupid to do something like this. it makes the fans sad and too many good artist die too soon. and how would u feel if someone did something like this to u? one thing if it was a joke from a friend and had a note on the very bottom.
This looks like a blatant PR stunt to get people thinking and talking about Bon Jovi just before Christmas.
The amount of major news covera
publicity stunt to make sure nobody forgets about the guy
Everyone knows that New Jersey is the armpit of America.
Looks like New Jersey? OMG, so Bon Jovi must be in Hell ! Anyway, he is ok.
Jon Bon Jovi? A class act and example for everyone. Good work Jon.
I wish this had been true.

Living on the edge.
Living on a Prayer...
come to melbourne florida for a concert sumtime. we have a big stadium
i am very glad he is still alive. many of his songs have been uplifting for me. keep up the good deeds and music- luv u
I think its rediculous for people to hoax someones dealth expecially a well known artist that has done so much more then most celebraties. We need more people in the world like jovi. And for those that that did it, grow up and find something usefull in life. Stop finding faults statements to over compinsate for something.
Its over johnny nobody is listen anymore
I need more proof than this Bon Jovi died back in the 90s along with the "mullet" and everyone knows that.
For someone to say that he died i was angery for saying that i love his music and him
Really? I can't imagine what hell looks like!
Heaven is full of guidos?
Unless his killers had him prepare and date this sign before they off'ed him. This proves nothing.
I like him. He runs some kind of soup kitchen for the needy. Not many actors even think of the needy. In his way, he is a hero!
That's AWESOME!! not many average citizens do that.
New Jersey is yuuuuky. I hope he stays there.
FIRSTY!!!!!! in Jersey
