Clam down everyone. Austin Russell –a.k.a Chumlee– is not dead.
Rumors of Chumlee’s death were circulated around social media websites after a false report of his passing was made by EBuzzd and other websites. Chumlee addressed the death hoax via Twitter (TWTR) on Wednesday with a Tweet that said “May we live long, Rich forever.” Pawn Stars co-star Rick Harrison also addressed the rumor with a Tweet saying that Russell is alive and well, reports The Hollywood Gossip.
This isn’t the first time that a death hoax surrounding Chumlee has made its rounds on the internet. In 2013 he was the subject of not one, but two death hoaxes. One of those hoaxes even claimed that the Pawn Stars actor passed away from a marijuana overdose, The Inquisitr notes.
