Jon Bon Jovi wants duped fans to know he’s not dead, and he has posted a photo proving it.
False reports of the New Jersey-born musician’s death spread online after a fake news release surfaced on social media sites.
Bon Jovi is shown in a picture on his Facebook page holding a sign that reads, “Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey.” Below that is scrawled Monday’s date.
Bon Jovi was performing at a charity concert that night at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank. His publicist confirmed Bon Jovi was alive and well and playing the show.
