Jay-Z in a Plane Crash-- NOT TRUE

5/4/2007 2:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: TMZ has confirmed that Jay-Z WAS NOT aboard the plane. The three aboard the plane were "white men."

Rumors have been swirling this morning that rapresario Jay-Z (aka Shawn Carter) was in a plane crash this morning.

TMZ has confirmed that a small plane registered to a citizen of Dublin, GA crashed near Asheville, NC in the Smoky Mountains. The FAA tells TMZ that the four-seat propeller plane did go down this morning, but could not provide any additional details.

Sources tell TMZ that he is on his way to Vegas this weekend to take in the Mayweather - de la Hoya fight.

No other site has this story -- TMZ, I hope you did not jump the gun with this one -- what if its true??? Did you break a story before the family/friends were notified?

No mention of Jay-Z, but it's pretty vague.

Whether or not he was on the plane it's still a sad story. I hope he wasn't though.

How does a rumor like this start... its either totally unfounded, or totally true. I guess figuring out who the source is would clear all of that up.

TMZ please update. I don't want to mention this to any of my people that don't scout the net if it has not been confirmed that Jay was on the plane. Big Jay Z fans my way. My prayers go out to the family of those who where, whoever they may be.

Would Jay-Z really be flying in a Cesna 182?

Seems like if he was flying in a small plane it would be a more luxurious jet.
