Ricky Martin is alive and well after becoming the latest target in an internet death hoax.
Over the weekend, a video titled “Ricky Martin Dead in Tragic Accident New Years Day” began circulating on the web
It claimed the 43-year-old died in a car wreck on a freeway in Los Angeles.
The clip showed a horrific car accident and a body being thrown from the car.
It didn’t take long for gossip columns to pick up the story and report it as news.
But, it was all a prank!
Ricky is still livin’ la vida loca on the beach in Puerto Rico.
He responded to the hoax on his Twitter page writing, “Hello from heaven.”
He also posted a photo of himself watching a beautiful sunset on Instagram.
