Rumor Control: Montell Jordan Is Not Dead

Montell Jordan is the victim of a death hoax. The R&B singer was falsely said to have been “found dead” in his Atlanta condo in Twitter messages attributed to “CNN.”

This is 100% false and the This Is How We Do It singer is alive and well.

The real @CNN account never reported Jordan’s alleged “death,” nor did any other legitimate news outlets.

Nevertheless, the rumor quickly spread on social media, especially Facebook and Twitter, where Jordan’s name began trending nationwide.

Jordan was in good humor about the “news” tweeting…

“Sorry to disappoint… But I’m a new daddy and still got a lot of living to do!”

Jordan added…

“My son just told me I can’t be dead because I’m sitting here talking to him.”

A similar rumor falsely “killed” Mariah Carey in June.

Smh. We wonder who these social networks will kill off next!
