Jackie Chan reported dead... again

19 Jun – Another Jackie Chan death hoax has been circulating the web recently, causing much confusion and anger to the star's family and fans.

As reported on International Business Times, the 59-year-old action superstar allegedly passed away from a heart attack due to extreme stress, a report that was also purportedly confirmed by a hospital in Los Angeles.

In addition, a new Facebook page, "RIP Jackie Chan" was also created, causing much misunderstanding among fans of the star.

Representatives of the "CZ12" actor have responded to the death reports, saying, "Jackie Chan is alive and well. He didn't suffer a heart attack as was reported on many social networking sites and online news portals."

This is not the first time that the actor has been pronounced dead. Jackie was the victim of a celebrity death hoax in 2010, March and August 2011, as well as in 2012, with the actor reportedly dead due to a skiing accident.
