OMG, is Nicky Jam dead at just 35 years old?! A shocking photo that is said to be the singer’s dead body is circulating the Internet, and fans are totally freaking out. So, is it for real? Find out here.
Nicky Jam fans were in an uproar when a photo surfaced online of his alleged unconscious body on March 23, and immediately began speculating if something was seriously wrong with the “El Perdon” singer. And things got even crazier when reports surfaced that Nick had died at the young age of 35! So, what’s going on here? Is something seriously wrong?!
Breathe easy — everything is totally fine! Like many other celebs in the past, Nicky was just the victim of another Internet death hoax. The reason it was all so believable is because a fake Facebook account posing as CNN shared the news, so it was easy for fans to get duped.
It had to be super terrifying for Nicky himself to come across the rumor…especially since it meant seeing a photo of what his dead body would look like with a story about his death! “They killed me, my God, how horrible,” he wrote on Instagram, alongside a screen grab of the fake story. “People have nothing better to do.” .
He also shared a video of himself discussing the hoax, and is clearly not happy about it. “They already killed me, my God, these are sensationalists on the Internet,” he said to the camera. The same thing that helps us is the same thing that sinks us. That’s how life is.I’ll leave when God wants me to.”
Nicky is a Boston-born singer of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent, who rose to fame in 2001 with his album Haciendo Escante. He hasn’t put out a new album since 2007’s The Black Carpet, although he had a Greatest Hits record in 2014, so hopefully this little incident inspires him to get back in the studio!
Were you convinced by this hoax, HollywoodLifers? What do you think of Nicky’s response?
