Good news for Pawn Stars fans: Chumlee is alive and well.
The reality star, real name Austin Russell, fell victim to a death hoax earlier this week after tabloid site ebuzzd ran a story claiming the funnyman died of a heart attack. Mind you, the website also currently has a story on Betty White's death (obviously not true) as well as Justin Bieber's tragic accident (also false).
ebuzzd even cited a "doctor" who claimed that Chumlee's "death" was due to his rapid weight loss, as the star recently dropped over 100 pounds.
So how did Chumlee handle the news? He took to his official Twitter page to debunk the nasty death rumor.

And in case that wasn't enough to hammer his point home, Chumlee's costar and boss Rick Harrison also took to the social media site to add further confirmation to the obvious facts.
