brandon davis not dead getty Brandon Davis the oil heir is not deadAttention celebrity news readers — Brandon Davis, the 31-year-old oil heir grandson of Marvin Davis, former boyfriend of both actress Mischa Barton and heiress Paris Hilton and utterer of the infamous Lindsay Lohan “fire crotch” comment, is not dead.

]]>mistakenly reported Saturday (Sept. 25) that Davis died in a gas station explosion in Las Vegas. Remains were found and identified as Brandon Davis — but it was a 26-year-old Las Vegas resident, not the oil heir. Our condolences to the family of the actual victim, since the explosion happened almost a week ago and the remains were just found yesterday. How horrible.
