Dwayne Johnson, known as The Rock, has not died but has become the victim of two death hoaxes in the same week. One says he was killed in a fall and another said he died during “Fast & Furious 7″ filming, but neither are true. A recent one being spread via Facebook says Johnson died after falling to his death in New Zealand. It comes a few days after one–complete with a “RIP” image–said he died while filming a movie stunt for “Fast & Furious 7.” Amid the scams, Johnson tweeted on Wednesday: “Alright.. 3 hrs sleep, but kickin’ jet lag’s [expletive]. Its time to work.. Good morning from lovely London.” He also offered his condolences to the family of wrestler Ultimate Warrior, who died Tuesday night.

UPDATE: My Secret Meeting With Jonathan ––Fani-Kayode

A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, says his closed-door meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Tuesday has earned him insults.

Fani-Kayode, an ardent critic of the President, laments on Wednesday, that what transpired at the meeting had been the subject of so much "online speculation". Writing on his Facebook page, he insists that he has a right to pay a courtesy visit to Jonathan, just as governors who belong to the opposition APC do.

Reacting to the Muslim/Muslim presidential ticket saga in APC, Fani-Kayode said:
“What I have said is very simple and clear. I will say nothing until I am ready. Let those that are insulting me and making assumptions continue to do so. That, in itself, tells me a lot.”

How soon? || ANS: That is in the hands of God.

You should know since you have a steady relationship. || ANS: We have been together for a while.
