Bret Michaels Not Dead – Singer Battles Fake Jet Ski Death Report

Bret Michaels Not Dead - Singer Battles Fake Jet Ski Death Report

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Bret Michaels is not dead. Bret Michaels is the victim of a fake death report that resurfaced shortly after 7 pm PST tonight. The same report surfaced online two years ago. The fake death report erroneously claims that Michaels died in a Jet Ski crash in Turks and Caicos. If the report sounds familiar, it should; it has been used before against countless other celebrities.

Roughly thirty minutes ago, certain Twitter users began retweeted a fake report from Global Associated as true. The report is false, and even states that it is false. Roughly a dozen Twitter users began sending out tweets to fans that the report is not only true but from today. But the same report surfaced online two years ago. The fake report reads “Musician Bret Michaels died while on a personal vacation in Turks and Caicos early this morning from injuries sustained in a Jet-Ski accident – May 3, 2012.”

But buried in the bottom of the report is the warning “and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purpose”. It remains unclear what is “entertainment” in reporting that someone has died.

If the report sounds familiar, it should. The same fabricated jet ski report was used against Ja Rule in March, against Chris Brown in February, and against Mac Miller in January. And yet, the erroneous report is still prompting confusion tonight.

Tamra Barney in 2011 battled the same fake report. She told news at the time “for those of you that have been asking, I am very much alive.” Barney later added “I guess I better call my mom before she starts freaking out…she is one of those that believes everything she reads.”

The fake jet ski crash story, however, is a relatively new fabricated tale. As a result, it caused confusion last December when used against J Cole. In recent months, Global Associated most often killed off music celebrities with their dubious Route 80 car crash story, and killed off film actors with the repeated Zermatt snowboard crash story.

But the fake jet ski death report always reads the same way. “Preliminary reports from Turks and Caicos Police officials indicate that the musician struck a concrete boat slip in a marina on Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos Islands…. Specific details are not yet available.” There are no specific details because the report is a complete fabrication.

Mac Miller, Waka Flocka, and Wiz Khalifa aren’t dead in jet-ski accidents. David Guetta hasn’t died in a car crash on route 80. And Adam Sandler and Bret Michaels weren’t snowboarding in the Zermatt hills today either.
