No need to console Justin Bieber: Despite an online report to the contrary, Usher is alive and well.

On Monday, prank site Global Associated News claimed that the 33-year-old "Yeah" singer had been killed in a single-vehicle crash on the roads of New Jersey. (The non-news site has also killed off Eddie Murphy, Owen Wilson, Luke Perry, Denzel Washington, Ryan Gosling, Mariah Carey and many more.)

Fortunately, per Gossip Cop, Usher is very much alive. The same hoax already "killed" him off back in April.

It's a good thing Usher is OK: He's set to receive a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame next year.
