Pawn Stars star Chumlee has taken to Twitter to prove that he is, in fact, not dead.

Chumlee, born Austin Russell, fell victim to a death hoax earlier this week when rumors began to circulate that he had died from a heart attack.

"May we live long, Rich forever," the reality star tweeted amid a sea of condolences on social media.


Russell's co-star and boss Rick Harrison also debunked the rumors on Twitter.


Pawn Stars airs on the History channel and follows the daily operations of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas. The shop is family-owned, and Russell is the childhood friend of Corey Harrison, owner Rick Harrison's son.

You can see Chumlee alive and well on Pawn Stars at 9 p.m. ET on Thursdays.
