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.

I cannot believe TMZ would post something so horrible without confirming its veracity. Shame on TMZ for being either so careless or so heartless - depending on how this turns out. Desperate vultures.
