                              He had posted a video being interviewed saying he was not dead and it was just a rumor. I knew I should have ripped that video off of YouTube. Something strange is going on in hollyweird.

                                @Lenae23 doesn't matter what his son says. You know how hollyweird works. He did a video last week debunking his death. That video has since been removed. Maybe he was going to go through with the ritual but change his mind, and they killed him afterwards.
