Reports of Newman’s demise were greatly exaggerated on Sunday, according to the New York Post.
Beloved “Seinfeld” actor Wayne Knight appeared to be alive and well, contradicting rumors of his death in a traffic accident near the Pennsylvania-New York state border.
“Some of you will be glad to hear this; others strangely disappointed, but….I am alive and well!” Knight wrote on his verified Twitter feed Sunday afternoon.
The Wayne Knight-is-dead rumor was hatched in what appears to be a phony — but very detailed report, falsely attributed to US Weekly.
“Does someone have to DIE to trend? Geez!” Knight tweeted. “Thanks for all the love everybody. I didn’t know you cared. Glad to be breathing!”
