TMZ Made A Huge Mistake About Legendary Music Star


TMZ incorrectly claimed on Wednesday that Jerry Lee Lewis, the lead vocalist of "Great Balls of Fire," had passed away at his Memphis, Tennessee, home.

Lewis, 87, is a renowned pianist, noted for his exciting concerts in which he occasionally used his feet to play the piano.

“Jerry Lee Lewis is not dead … as we previously reported,” TMZ reported. “We’re told the rock n’ roll legend is alive, living in Memphis. Earlier today we were told by someone claiming to be Lewis’ rep that he had passed. That turned out not to be the case.”

 

“TMZ regrets the error,” the publication added.

 

The rumors probably started since the adored artist had recently struggled with health difficulties.

 

Lewis seemed flimsy and ill in a Facebook post from his official profile.

 

Jerry Lee Lewis was eventually admitted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on Sunday, according to the post from October 19. The sickness kept the great Jerry Lee from attending the ceremony.

 

“His longtime dear friend Kris Kristofferson accepted in his honor from Hank Williams Jr. and Kris and his wife Lisa were nice enough to drive down to Memphis and present it to Jerry Lee in person.”

 

Lee then said in a message to his fans, “It is with heartfelt sadness and disappointment that I write to you today from my sick bed, rather than be able to share my thoughts in person.

“I tried everything I could to build up the strength to come today – I’ve looked so forward to it since I found out about it earlier this year. My sincerest apologies to all of you for missing this fine event, but I hope to see you all soon.”

Lee first broke out into the music scene with his hit “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” in 1957.
