Jon Bon Jovi....Not Dead

In another of those wild fire internet rumors, the world thought that Jon Bon Jovi was dead.

A fake story was posted on that, according to the Los Angeles Times, was a copy of their article announcing the death of Michael Jackson in 2009. Whoever faked up the story simply changed Jackson's name to Bon Jovi's and replaced Los Angeles with Asbury Park, NJ locations and people. Of course, it spread across the internet in record time.

A picture of Bon Jovi was posted on his Facebook page taken by David Bergman with the poster saying "Rest assured that Jon is alive and well! This photo was just taken." The picture shows Jon in front of a Christmas tree holding a card saying "Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey...December 19th, 2011 6:00."
