Rest assured, Jon Bon Jovi is alive!  He was the victim of an online hoax that spread like wildfire yesterday afternoon saying that he had died in Asbury Park.  The rumor went viral right after the website dailynewsbloginternational "reported" his death from a cardiac arrest and was found unresponsive in a hotel room in the Empress Hotel in Asbury Park, according to eolnine.com.

With that announcement, it spread like wildfire across Facebook, Twitter and other news outlets.  It was also being reported that hundreds of reporters were at the hospital waiting on official word of his condition.

When Jon received word of his death he wanted his fans to know that he was alive so he posted a pic on his Facebook page showing him in front of a Christmas tree holding a sign that read,

Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey, December 19, 2011, 6:00"

He posted the pic and comment for all of his nearly 15-million likes to see!

So it looks like Bon Jovi is still on schedule to appear at the Bamboozle Festival in Asbury Park in May.
