    Dick Clark has been cremated, but no other memorial plans have been finalized, a rep for the iconic TV host and producer tells E! News.

    The confirmation comes after a report surfaced today that Clark—who passed away on Wednesday at a Santa Monica hospital at age 82 after suffering a massive heart attack following an outpatient procedure—was not going to have a burial. Instead, his body was to be cremated and the ashes scattered over the Pacific.

    No word yet if the American Bandstand host's family has performed the latter.

    In the wake of his death, a host of Clark's fellow celebrities offered up tributes to the New Year's Rockin' Eve emcee, among them E!'s own Ryan Seacrest, who spoke movingly of his mentor and friend at the beginning of Wednesday night's episode of American Idol.
