Rocsi Diaz’s man Eddie Murphy seems to have nine lives these days.
The popular comedian was the victim of an online death hoax Wednesday where rumor had it Murphy had tragically died in a snow boarding accident in Zermatt, Switzerland.
But according to entertainment news site Gossipcop.com, the rumor is 100 percent untrue and the star of "Daddy Day Care" and "Dream Girls" is alive and well.
This isn't the first time Murphy has allegedly “died” or has been allegedly “killed,” at least four other snow boarding accidents and death rumors have surface online.
Other Hollywood heavy weights such as Lady Gaga, and Adelle have also been victims of death hoaxes in the past.
As for Mr. Murphy's love life...
Diaz and Murphy became an item earlier this month, as the funnyman and the 106 and Park star stepped out hand in hand at the pre-BET Awards celebration in Los Angeles, Calif.
Later, the new couple was spotted in Maui, Hawaii taking paddle board lessons and getting wiped out by the waves. Murphy and Diaz didn’t shy away from the cameras as the two hugged often,The Daily Mail UK reported.
Word on the street is that Diaz, who recently left her VJ position at 106 and Park, is pursuing a career in acting and that Murphy is speculated to be guiding her in her new endeavor.
Diaz, 28, is hitting the big screen in the new flick “Soul Ties,” and according to The Daily Mail hopes to make the big time.
Murphy has also been linked to singers Toni Braxton and Melanie Brown, (Mel B) from the Spice Girls, whom he fathered a child with.
