jon bon jovi robbed gi Jon Bon Jovi isn't dead, just the latest victim of Internet death hoaxWe’re starting to think that being the target of an “Internet death hoax” should be a certified rite of passage for which celebrities receive some kind of Girl Scout-like merit badge. If they did, Jon Bon Jovi would be the latest to add that annoying accomplishment to his sash.

According to Gossip Cop, a story circulating on Twitter claimed that the Bon Jovi frontman had been found “in a coma” at a hotel in New Jersey and was taken to a hospital where he subsequently “suffered cardiac arrest.”

But Bon Jovi’s reps tell Gossip Cop that the 49-year-old rocker is alive and well and will, in fact, be performing at a charity gig Monday (Dec. 19) evening in New Jersey.

Don’t worry, Jon. We still want you (waaaant you) “dead or alive.”
