Don’t believe everything you read on Twitter. On Wednesday (Sept. 21), a 140-character or less rumor spread like wildfire on the social networking site claiming that soccer star/husband of Victoria David Beckham had died in a fiery car crash.

From what we’ve been able to cobble together from various frantic tweets, rumor had it that Beckham lost control while driving a friend’s car on Interstate 80 (we assume in California) and rolled the vehicle several times.

But, rest assured, Beckham is alive and well and pulling pranks for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”: he recently pretended to be a Target employee pushing a new cologne.
