ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Ja Rule is not dead. Ja Rule is battling a fake RIP death tale today concerning Turks and Caicos and a jet ski. And Will Smith is not dead either. But both performers are the victims of false celebrity death reports today.
When he was incarcerated months ago, Ja Rule battled a fake death report. After the false tale surfaced online, fans, who forgot that Ja Rule was in prison, were baffled why the rapper wasn’t taking to Twitter to disputing the report. But now that Ja Rule is a free man, he is still battling fake death tales. Ja Rule has not died in Turks and Caicos; he was not on a jet ski today; he was not visiting the Marina in Parrot Cay; and he wasn’t hanging out with Chris Brown.
In February, Chris Brown battled the same fake Turks and Caicos death story. Created by Mediafetcher aka Global Associated, the Ja Rule tale also concerns Turks and Caicos. “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 were no specific details because the report was a complete fabrication.
Turks and Caicos is a typical location used by Mediafetcher for their fake death stories concerning male rappers. Among them are Lil Wayne. “Lil Wayne was the only passenger on the personal watercraft at the time of the incident. Specific details are not yet available” read Weezy’s fake Turks story.
But is Ja Rule joining the cast of Real Housewives of Orange County next season? Nope, yet he and Tamra Barney are both “dead” the same way today. “Actress – Tamara Barney dies following Jet-Ski crash in Turks and Caicos Islands” reads another fake death tale published on Mediafetcher today.
Ja Rule, Lil Wayne and Tamra Barney were not on a jet ski today; they were not in Turks and Caicos. Bu they are all the victims of the same Mediafetcher template. As Mediafetcher states in small print at the bottom of Ja Rule’s story “this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes.”
