Jerry Lewis Down -- False Alarm

5/16/2009 10:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Reports claim Jerry Lewis collapsed at the Cannes Film Festival in France just a short time ago. He's 83. From what we can tell he just slipped. We're checking to be sure.

UPDATE: We spoke to Jerry's rep and she has informed us that she spoke to Jerry and his wife and he is fine. She also says, "Stories of a collapse are completely erroneous, Jerry is in good health and spirits in Cannes."

Very Interesting    

Am I the only one to notice the big lie here? His reps said, "Stories of a collapse are completely erroneous." How can it be erroneous when indeed you show a picture of him collapsing... and getting help picked back up???

Jerry Lewis is a comedic legend and philanthropist. To those of you making fun or trashing him, I ask, what have you done with your life???

After the movies, the TV work, the recordings, the stage peformances and radio he's still such a loveable superstar.
But losing Ed McMahon sure kills Jerry in the most worst way ever.
