A representative for Christian Slater has shot down false reports suggesting the actor had died following a snowboarding accident in Switzerland.
The sick claims spread across the internet on Monday (31Jan11), alleging the True Romance star lost his life at the luxury Zermatt ski resort - the same place that was at the centre of similar celebrity death hoaxes involving Owen Wilson, Charlie Sheen, Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy in December (10).
But a spokesperson for Slater insists the 41 year old is still alive, telling the New York Daily News, "It is not true."
