Is Bernie Mac Dead? Nasty Rumor Makes The Rounds

A rather strange rumor is making the rounds that Bernie Mac is dead.

There is NO truth to this and while Bernie Mac remains in the hospital under treament for pneumonia, he is very much alive.

"Bernie Mac is still alive and being treated in a Chicago hospital for pneumonia and is expected to make a full recovery," his rep Danica Smith confirmed today once it was apparent that the rumour wasn't going away. "We once again ask that the press respect his privacy and that of his family."

The 50-year-old Chicago native was admitted to hospital last week and remained there over the weekend. He is responding well to treatment and should be released soon.

Update: It's a week later and sadly, what started out as a rumor, has become truth. Bernie Mac has passed away at the young age of 50.
