Sum 41 frontman in internet death hoax
Following his split from popstar wife Avril Lavigne last month, Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley is making internet headlines again; This time as part of a hoax reporting that he died yesterday morning.
Yesterday afternoon, US blog www.brightestyoungthings.com, picked up on a number of Twitter posts from an unnamed American promoter / booking agent claiming that Whibley had passed away.
"Friends of DC music in Las Vegas have confirmed, to much much sorrow throughout our city that Deryck Whibley, who played so many early shows in DC's punk scene, has died today,” began the post. “He was found at 10:45am by his girlfriend Hanna Beth Merjos. Details to come, we are all still reeling."
The singer’s management have confirmed that the Tweets were false and that Whibley is "very much alive and well."
