Ed Sheeran joins the unique company of Beyonce, Jack Black, Jackie Chan and many more stars that have falsely been reported as dead.
The “Shape of You” singer’s fans woke up on Thursday morning to reports of his untimely demise, according to Icelandic newspaper Morgunblaoio.
A photo of Sheeran, 27, was published next to an obituary for an Icelandic mechanic named Svavari Gunnari Sigurosson, 82.
Fans in Iceland quickly spotted the mistake and shared the news on Twitter, informing the world of Sheeran’s death mix-up.
Sheeran has a touchy relationship with Iceland. The beloved singer stepped in a mountain geyser and melted the skin on his foot while on a trip to see the Northern Lights.
