Shaggy

Who's That Dead Guy?

Wasn't Me.

1/23/2013 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0124-shaggy-gettyReggae pop star Shaggy was not stabbed in a bar fight this week ... and he sure as hell ain't dead despite Internet reports to the contrary ... this according to a living, breathing Shaggy.

Once again, the Internet death machine cranked out a rumor that Shaggy kicked the bucket after taking a shiv to the liver during a brawl in L.A..  In fact, someone even updated Shaggy's Wikipedia page with bogus info.

But lo and behold, Mr. Boombastic lives ... and it ain't the first time he's been the victim of a cyber-death hoax. It's happened about a billion times before.

A rep for the Reggae star tells TMZ ... "[Shaggy] is like a cat with 9 lives … but I can happily report that he’s alive and kicking and in the same building as me right now as we speak."

Fantastic.

Shaggy a song wasn't me rocked our boat many a summer day!, Remember it like it was yesterday after thinking back Still have it on my first MP3 player... But just looked him up to make sure I had my facts right before letting the people who just for no reason like being "HATEFUL" besides writing a Really good song he was a US Marine who served in the Persian Gulf so as you out there who just like being mean ask yourself what have you personally done for your country? Thanks Shaggy for your service and wish you 'd make more real easy to listen to music!!!
