Kanye West is dead? If you believe everything you read, you might think this is true, but it’s not.
A fake death rumor made it’s way to the internet this week, claiming the rapper/producer was killed in a car accident on Tuesday evening (October 20th).
The rumor prompted Twitter users to send “RIP Kanye West” tweets across the micro-blogging network, helping the phrase become the evening’s top trending topic.
West’s girl, Amber Rose, took to her official Twitter profile (@DaRealAmberRose) to dispel the rumors, and let everyone know Kanye is alive and well.
“This ‘RIPKanyeWest’ topic is not funny and its NOT TRUE! He has people like myself and his family that love him very much,” Amber tweeted. “Its in extreme poor taste to have that as a trendy topic. It’s totally disrespectful to make up a story like this where all human and we all make mistakes and to say someone died cuz of a mistake is ridiculous. U wouldn’t want someone to say that about u.”
Following her reaction, Amber began to post several tweets with the hash tag “#LongLiveYeezy,” in which she posted several Kanye quotables. Below are a few of them:
— and we all make mistakes and to say someone died cuz of a mistake is ridiculous. U wouldn’t want someone to say that about u.

The news comes over a month after Kanye stormed the VMAs stage during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech, drawing backlash across the board.
Even President Obama called him “a jackass.”
Despite it all, Amber says she will stand by her man. “I’ll always ride for my man!!!! I’m bout to get off here and still RIDE for him. LITERALLY. Holla,” the model tweeted.
