The report about the actor losing his life was a hoax.  He’s alive and well.  Rumors about his death spread throughout the internet after a R.I.P. Facebook page was created.  According to Fox a picture of the 49-year-old actor standing next to Paul Walker’s ghost went viral for obvious reasons.  Back in 2013, Walker, who played Brian O’Conner, was killed in a car accident.


One person that is definitely happy about the story being fake is his twin brother, Paul.  MTV reports that the Find Me Guilty star used Facebook to clear up rumors about the identity of his brother.  Actions like these set him apart from other celebrities and explains why he has so many Facebook followers.


Another person that’s happy that the rumors are false is the actor’s wife, Paloma Jimenez.  The couple have three children yet they are not married.  According to recent rumors, the actor recently cheated on the 32-year-old.  The Mexican model reportedly decided to give Vin a second chance.
