Stephenie Meyer IS NOT DEAD!
I didn't hear about this until just now, but apparently a rumor has been going around that Stephenie Meyer is...dead? Don't worry, this is completely FALSE! Stephenie Meyer is alive and well (her brother said so on her official site).
Our favorite Twilight guy, Kaleb Nation, made a rap song to try and spread the word that this rumor is not true:
While we're on the topic of addressing rumors, there's another one that needs to be busted. Rumors have been going around that Chaske Spencer was an addict who got clean in a hurry so he could function while filming New Moon. Chaske set the record straight on his website:
"Personal Message from Chaske Spencer Setting the Record Straight
To all the wonderful, incredibly loyal fans:
For those of you that read that I was in rehab, I wanted to make sure you heard the truth from me directly. Yes it is true, that I was in rehab, however it was over 19 months ago, long before NEW MOON was even on my radar. It was a pivotal time in my life where I was lucky enough to have supportive friends and family to help me get healthy. I am grateful that I have been clean and sober now for 19 months and cannot imagine my life if I had continued using drugs and alcohol. Almost everything else that was written about this is blatantly false and we are exploring our legal options. That was my past, and I am thankful that I had the opportunity to create a new future for myself. I encourage anyone who is in a similar place to seek support from their friends and family and know that without them, I would not have had the chance to be where I am now.
I want to thank all of you for the support you have shown, and continue to show. I appreciate each and every one of you.
