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 don't think this should have been reported if TMZ didn't know for sure. They just wanted to be the first in the media.

I'm praying this is not true.

23. Doesn't appear to be Jay-Z. It was some doctors.

TMZ will you hurry up and confirm or deny? You should not have posted this news until you were for sure about it.

That's terrible. I hope it's not true. Either way, I feel bad for those victims and their families, whoever they are.

Aaliyah's plane was a Cessna. I don't think TMZ would post this if they had no facts to back it up. I'm praying it's not true...

If I've heard this rumor, surely by now Jay-Z's publicist has heard it.

Why doesn't Jay-Z's publicist issue a statement saying he's okay?

#23 -Amanda,
That link was to a plane crash in April near Murphy, NC, not the one today.
I'm 1.5 hrs. from Asheville, NC and the speculation is that it was a famous person's plane that crashed. Please note, this is not confirmed, just speculation.
