Guess this means Just Go With It 2 could still happen.

Despite tweets to to the contrary, Adam Sandler is not dead. In the latest celebrity death hoax spread via a certain micro-blogging medium, the actor was said to have been killed in a snowboarding accident in Switzerland. Trouble is, this is the same that Sandler's rep debunked again—and wasn't too excited that it resurfaced.

"It's old, from December," the publicist tells E! News. "Not worth a comment."

Sandler is/was part of an exalted group of celebs who've been rumored falsely of having died, including Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Taylor Lautner, Matt Damon and even Jeff Goldblum. Even the method isn't unique, as snowboarding mishaps have been the cause of the fake deaths of Jim Carrey, Eddie Murphy and—as if—Charlie Sheen.

We'd suggest the pranksters start acting like grown-ups, but we suspect they'd think we meant the guys in Sandler's Grown-Ups. In which case, they're probably fine.
