EMINEM, R.I.P.
Year: 2000, 2008, 2009
How he did NOT die: The story that now recovering addict Eminem had died in a car crash while high and drunk surfaced in 2000, but it came back with a vengeance in 2008 and 2009. It’s not really the most creative, but it was in the realm of possibility and there was even a fake CNN page. The hoaxers were pretty dedicated, so points for effort.
