Is Jon Bon Jovi dead? No! False report of Bon Jovi death appears to copy LA Times’ Jackson story from 2009.
A false internet report claiming that rock star Jon Bon Jovi died appears to have been copied from a 2009 Los Angeles Times story that announced the death of Michael Jackson. A website called “dailynewbloginternational” posted the story claiming that Bon Jovi was dead on Monday.
The story had changed some words and details, falsely reporting that Bon Jovi died in New Jersey during a world tour. But some of the sentences appeared to have been copied from the Times story on Jackson’s death that ran on L.A. Now after he was stricken at his Holmby Hills mansion.
The LA Times said it was looking into the issue but emphasized that the newspaper was not involved in the false report.
