The Cosby Show star was falsely reported to have died on Monday (August 27) due to a fake 'R.I.P. Bill Cosby' page which was started on Facebook.
Cosby is merely the latest in a series of death hoax rumors which have been highlighted in the media in the last several weeks.
Russell Brand laughed off rumors of his demise on Sunday (August 26) by tweeting a link to an article claiming he'd died in a snowboarding accident in Switzerland.
Eddie Murphy has also twice been rumoured to have died in a similar accident in Switzerland in the last few months.
Kris Jenner, Vanilla Ice and Madonna have also recently been the victims of death hoaxes.
