Did rapper Lil Wayne almost die in a car accident? This is the latest celebrity death hoax to hit the Internet -- and we help you separate fact from fiction.

This isn't the first time Lil Wayne has been the victim of a celebrity death rumor. Three years ago a rumor surfaced that his daughter, who was eight at the time, died in a car accident -- that, luckily, also turned out to be nothing but a rumor.

If the Lil Wayne car accident post shows up on your Facebook wall, recommends you delete it (click on the "X" in the right hand corner) and report the post as spam.
