Tom Petty Death Hoax Dismissed Since Singer Is ‘Alive And Well’
On Sunday (October 01) the singer’s reps officially confirmed that Tom Petty is not dead. “He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet,” they said.
Plenty of traffic on Twitter but nothing official yet.
The NME have upgraded to:
I see nothing on the BBC or Guardian pages though. Here’s hoping that the NME are proving to be a bunch of twats again.
Oh god really!?
I’m starting to think this may not be a hoax…

That is just a regurgitation of the TMZ report.
Oh no, such a loss if true.
Rolling stone are reporting it.
FFS what is wrong with people!
I like a joke as much as anybody. This is not a joking matter.
CP to the hoaxers
Ouch, another one that hurts.
I’m saving my grief until it’s confirmed.

A few outlets have confirmed it now. Bollocks
Seems to be getting reported at more news sites by the minute.
