It just wouldn’t be New Year’s Eve without someone starting a Twitter rumor about a celebrity death.
For the record … Eric Wright Jr. a.k.a. Lil Eazy E is not dead.
We know this for a fact because he called friend and journalist Jasmyne Cannick today and left her a message stating that he’s alive albeit not that well.
Additionally, the Associated Press is reporting that Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Ryan Case said Saturday that Eric Wright Jr.’s name was on a rental agreement for one of the cars that collided Friday in East Texas. He says Wright was mistakenly listed as killed but actually was not involved in the wreck.
Wright, who raps under the stage name is Lil’ Eazy-E, posted on Twitter that close friends died. Those killed in the rental car were: Debra Thompson of Long Beach, Calif.; and Curtis Sanders, Michael Mathis, Lawrence Bridnac III, of Compton, Calif.
Those killed in the other car were 29-year-old Sonia de la Torre, of Annona, and her three young children.
We’re saddened to hear about the loss of Lil E’s cousin and the the 7 other victims, but we’re glad that he’s alive and well.

*One may have never thought it was possible but Beyonce just might be tired of Lady Gaga. Well they’re just rumors for now, but the story is an insider, according to the National Enquirer, says the singer is just tired of the devilish antics of Gaga and her scene snatching acts.
It’s really hard to tell since the two have been like best buds as they demonstrated in last year’s “Telephone” and “Video Phone.”
Apparently, some beefin’ went down recently between the two … if the Enquirer’s report is to be believed.
“The bad blood between Beyoncé and Gaga has been brewing for months, but it really exploded after the Grammy Awards in February,” the insider said. “Beyoncé thought Gaga’s entrance was way over the top and ridiculously self-serving. Every other artist worked the red carpet in a traditional manner, but Gaga made it all about her.”
According to Gaga’s folks, she’s a bit shocked by her peer’s disapproval.
“At this point, Gaga is used to people criticizing her. It’s part of being so successful,” said a source from Gaga’s camp. “But she never expected it from Beyoncé whom she saw as a friend and supporter. Gaga plans to confront her the next time they run into each other and demand an apology.”
But that might not happen according to the source. They say Beyonce wants to “take Gaga down a few pegs.” Whatever that means.
*The (false) Facebook fee rumor is so persistent that it even warrants a page on Snopes.com, the website that that tracks down internet urban legends.
In the wake of free Internet provider NetZero changing its tune, could it be true that there is a kernel of truth to the Facebook monthly fee scuttlebutt?
The amount varies. The Snopes page answers to a $4.99 Facebook fee email rumor, but other messages carry taglines specifying $14.99 per month. Questions raised ask whether – if Facebook were to charge a monthly fee – users would continue with the service.
