Ricky Martin is NOT dead and the videos on popular video sharing website YouTube that claim that the Puerto Rican singer, actor and author has died in a car accident on New Years day is a hoax. The video is a voice-over of Lt. Keith Boyd of Marin County Sheriff’s Office announcing the death of Robin Williams back in August 2014.
The Fake Ricky Martin Tragic Accident Video
Report says: Multi-platinum artist Enrique Martin Morales, known by the stage name Ricky Martin died at 4:30 pm eastern time while driving his BMW CONVERTIBLE CAR on a freeway in Los Angeles, CA.

“Hello from ?#heaven.”
