'The Fridge' is alive
August 15 , 2013
William Perry has been a victim of the Internet rumors that are calling him dead.
The rumors began on twitter when a football site erroneously tweeted about a Super Bowl star's passing but the posts were eventually deleted.
Perry's representative from his talent agency said he had spoken to Perry's brother and confirmed that the 50-year-old Chicago legend was fine. The news was verified by Tim Bourret, sports information director.
Perry's death has been a concern since his alcoholism was reported by ESPN in 2011.
