The news of Paul’s tragic death on Nov. 30 sparked reports that the actor was the victim of a death hoax just one day prior to his actual death. Read on for all the details.
After the untimely passing of Paul Walker, 40, and his friend Roger Rodas, 38, on Nov. 30 in Santa Clarita, Ca., many questioned whether the Fast & Furious actor had shockingly been named in a death hoax a day before his fatal accident. The answer is no! The hoax report never happened.
Paul Walker: Death Hoax Before Actual Death?
Reports about Paul being named in a death hoax the day before he died are simply not true, according to Just Jared. The reports surfaced from a hoax website that has an automatic name generator set for any celebrity that is typed in.
Many thought it was a creepy coincidence that the actor actually died right after the death hoax, but there never was an actual death hoax. We’re so glad that there wasn’t a full-fledged hoax that would have added to the sorrow of actually losing Paul in such a horrific way.
Paul ‘So Happy’ Moments Before Fatal Accident
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Paul was in great spirits before he tragically died in a one-car accident.
“He had been so happy,” charity guest Bill Townshend told E!. “He was there at the event and had managed to raise thousands and so many people had brought toys.”
“So many people had come out to support the charity and he was with his friends. It was a great day for him. He was so overwhelmed to have so much support,” Bill added.
We continue to send our support and prayers to Paul’s family and friends during this difficult time.
