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.

Hey dumb asses!!! TMZ did not report that he was dead. If you morons could read, you would notice that they said there are unconfirmed reports. Maybe before you jump all over people, you will wake the hell up! God damn idiots!!!

This is the most irresponsible, blatantly horrific use of media I have ever seen from a "news" sight. You people are absolutely pathetic. If anybody at your office was actually entwined with pop culture or celebrity information, this story would have been scrapped before the posting ever even occurred. Instead you have come of looking foolish once again, and not to mention you have dragged a respectable icons name through the dirt. I understand the politics of breaking the story first, but this is downright disgusting. Everybody knows that Jay-Z would never be caught on a single engine propeller powered cesna, seeing that he owns his own jet, so this is nothing short of irresponsible and borderline malicious. Idiots.

Don't you love how tmz quickly put the lame Gisele story above their bogus Jay-Z story? Bet they wish they could just remove the story completely. That might be their next move.
