Judd Nelson Dead? Newest Death Hoax Hits The Internet
Rest easy, everyone. Judd Nelson (aka John Bender from The Breakfast Club) is alive!
The “Brat Pack” star was the latest celebrity to fall victim to the vicious death hoaxes that continue to pop up in Hollywood.
The report surfaced on the website foxnews.es, a site that looks a lot like the actual Fox News site. The report said that sources were saying that Judd had been found dead in his condo in Los Angeles.
But it was all just a hoax. His manager and agent confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that the actor, best known for his role in the John Hughes classic and St. Elmo’s Fire, was definitely still alive.
His agent, Gregg Klein, told the outlet that Judd didn’t even live where the faux news site had said he did.
He also attached a photo of a very alive Judd with the caption, “Reports of Judd Nelson’s death are not accurate please see attached photo.” (See the photo here.)
However, fans still freaked out over the possibility that Judd really died.
Judd Nelson is NOT dead….right???
