Actress Yvonne Nelson has denied rumours suggesting that she is dead.
News went viral Monday that the actress had passed on.
The rumours particularly gained currency this week because it has been difficult to reach the actress to ascertain the veracity of the news.
Sources close to her, however, told Myjoyonline.com Monday that there was no iota of truth in the rumours.
The actress in her bid to personally dispel the remours took to twitter and said: “I'm alive and ok.....pls stop spreading death rumours.......thank you.”
This will not be the first time the actress has been rumoured to have died come close to death. In November 2011, she was said to have escaped death by a whisker after suffering from food poisoning.
Sources had said the incident took place before she embarked on a trip to Paris.
“At about 12:30 midnight Friday, she had to be rushed to the hospital for an injection. She was told it was food poisoning,” the source was quoted to have said.
The actress was also quoted to have said “One birthday gift at 12:30 was an injection. God bless you all,” after she was admitted at the hospital for the food poisoning.
