A lot of people were horrified and shocked as they read a CNN iReport with the headline ôGotye dead at the age of 32ö
, posted by a certain ôMJTheDestroyö, stating:
ôAt 4:32 AM EST, it was reported that Gotye had shot himself in the head with a 9mm handgun. He was pronounced dead at 4:45 AM, and the investigation concluded that the cause of death was suicide. It was confirmed shortly after by family and friends. He was quickly taken to the Central Montmorency Hospital, but died from his injuries shortly after. His family has stated that they plan a closed funeral.ö
But just a few hours, the "Somebody That I Used To Know" singer tweeted to confirm that HE IS ALIVE and the rumors are 100% false:
CNN iReport is a program designed to collect and utilize user-generated content as part of CNN's existing editorial process. Not everything posted there are correct and anyone with an internet connection can post an ôiReportö on their site.
