David Beckham is not dead

Beckham didn't die in a car crash, and the false death reports about the soccer star have angered his fans.

In another prank from a hoax tabloid "Global Associated News" on Wednesday, the soccer star died in a single vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell. The site stated that paramedics pronounced Beckham dead at the scene.

"Highway Safety Investigators have told reporters that David Beckham lost control while driving a friend's vehicle on Interstate 80 and rolled the vehicle several times killing him instantly," the site reported.

Fans then turned to Twitter to see if reliable news sources were reporting this accident. But they couldn't find any.
