The Twitterverse has lit up with an alleged CNN report that Morgan Freeman passed away — but his publicist tells us otherwise!

Thousands of Tweeters were bamboozled Dec. 17 by an alleged CNN tweet claiming Morgan Freeman passed away in his Burbank home — but is happy to report the 73-year-old legendary actor is alive and kicking!

Morgan’s rep was quick to respond to our concerned email, writing, “Not true. His production partner Lori McCreary is speaking to him now as I type.”

What a relief! We hope to have Mr. Freeman around for years to come.
