Jackie Chan died of heart attack: 2011 Death Rumor

Jackie Chan, 56, allegedly died of heart attack Monday night, March 28, 2011.

That's according to a website which looks like Australia's Yahoo!7News (au.news.yahoo.com).

The website using the link url pastehtml.com claims that a Los Angeles hospital confirmed Jackie Chan's death after he suffered a heart attack while promoting new movie 'Kung Fu Panda 2'.

The sad news about this Chinese Hollywood superstar immediately circulated on social networking sites, such as on Twitter and the terms "RIP Jackie Chan" made it to top trending topics on Twitter.

The original tweet stating that Jackie Chan is dead generated more than 14,000 retweets.

But it turned out to be just another death hoax this 2011.

Jackie Chan's representative has already issued a statement both on Twitter and Facebook denying that he passed away. "Jackie Chan is alive and well. He did not suffer heart attack and die, as what was reported in many social networking sites and in online news reports. Jackie is fine and is busy preparing for the filming of his next movie."

I think the new movie that he's currently filming is "1911", which is said to be Jackie Chan's 100th movie and is due for release in September.

So, don't believe the rumor guys. And remember, the April Fool's Day is coming in 3 days, so this could be an early April Fool's joke.
