LOS ANGELES — Shaggy was not stabbed in a bar fight this week, and he sure isn’t dead despite Internet reports to the contrary — this according to the living, breathing Reggae pop star himself.
Once again, the Internet cranked out a rumor that Shaggy kicked the bucket after taking a knife to the liver during a brawl in Los Angeles. In fact, someone even updated Shaggy’s Wikipedia page with bogus info, according to TMZ.
But lo and behold, Shaggy lives. That said, the rumor wasn’t entirely surprising, considering this isn’t the first time he’s been rumored dead online. It’s happened on multiple occasions, according to TMZ.
A rep for the Reggae star tells TMZ that Shaggy “is like a cat with 9 lives.”
“But I can happily report that he’s alive and kicking and in the same building as me right now as we speak,” the source said.
