Hollywood star Jim Carrey has become the latest victim of an internet death hoax.

An 'RIP Jim Carrey' Facebook page was started on Wednesday (October 10), with the account's creator claiming that the 50-year-old actor was killed in a plane crash.

Carrey's spokesperson was quick to respond to the death reports, assuring E! News that the Canadian – who’s currently dating Irish makeup artist Cathriona White - is very much alive and well.

Carrey is the latest in a string of celebrity death hoax victims in the last several months as Morgan Freeman, Bill Cosby, Kris Jenner, Vanilla Ice and Madonna have all been falsely rumoured to have died.
