One True
One False

Will Smith died? Sean Kingston in a jet skiing accident? Seems the holiday weekend has turned up the heat on the Internet gossip mill! Unfortunately the rumors are at least half right.

If you woke up to the news that Will Smith died Tuesday morning, you aren't alone. Word on the web is that the actor fell off a cliff while in New Zealand filming Men in Black III.

Yet as quickly as Twitter users can gasp, "Will Smith died?!?" reports are surfacing that the 42-year-old is still alive and kicking. NZ Herald reports, "Actor Will Smith last night became the latest celebrity to not fall to his death near the Kauri Cliffs resort in Northland. Internet hoaxes have plagued the five-star resort, located 17 km north of Kerikeri."

They continue, "In 2006, Tom Hanks didn't die there, while two years later, Tom Cruise didn't meet a similar fate. The fictitious curse also ensnared Jeff Goldblum and Orlando Bloom."

While we're happy to put the Will Smith died rumors to rest, we can confirm the Sean Kingston accident reports are terribly accurate.

As we reported on Sunday, Sean Kingston crashed his jet ski into a bridge over the holiday weekend. The Beautiful Girls singer and a female companion were rescued from the water and taken to the hospital.

Sean Kingston (birth name Kisean Anderson) was taken to the ICU and has since been stabilized and moved into critical care. TMZ reports that alcohol has been ruled out as a contributing factor in the jet ski crash.

A report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reads, "Anderson was operating a PWC [personal watercraft] with a female passenger westbound along McArthur Cswy towards the Palm Ave bridge. Anderson struck the bridge and was transported to Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition."

So there you have it -- the Will Smith died rumors are a total hoax, while the Sean Kingston accident report is totally true.

I was at work when I heard the rumor from Facebook... Gosh didn't read this until now.. Yall wondering why someone would do a rumor like that is because someone is bored of their dull life.. To see if anyone would buy since a thing like that.. Will Smith, you are fine african american Usher is too... But you are a wonderful actor and plays the role out well... SO when Men in Black 3 comes out then you can prove the dumb nut that you are live and living to the fullest... Good luck with the movie shooting and real life situations in your life right now... Praying for you and Sean... Sean, hope you make a full recovery to your accident..

I think you all miss the point of of insurances they promise you peace of mind and take your money willingly but if you read the small small print it says this policy will not pay out under any circumstances even if under an order to by a court of law just pay them your premium and forget you have it thats what they do.

Thank God the both are alive

The outcome could go either way, leaning towards Elba would give the role a fresh new face, while the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” could be an exciting combination of energy with Quentin.
