Washington: Jon Bon Jovi took to social media to quash a hoax about his death, and posted a funny picture of himself to show fans that he was still alive and well.

According to the Age, a website called dailynewbloginternational had reported that Bon Jovi died in New Jersey during a world tour.

Fans of the 49-year-old rocker were left frantic on Monday, when gossip emerged suggesting that the star had suffered a cardiac arrest and passed away.

Bon Jovi’s spokesperson swiftly dismissed the reports, and now the singer has reassured his followers he is in good health, Contactmusic reported.

He posed for a picture holding a sign that read “Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey Dec 19th 2011,” with a caption uploaded alongside the snap on Facebook saying, “Rest assured that Jon is fine! This photo was just taken.”
