LAPD: There is No Official Confirmation on The Death of Hospitalized Tom Petty

By October 2, 2017Music

Despite the many news sources reporting on Tom Petty’s official death, the LAPD has since posted on their Twitter account clarifying that there is no official confirmation on the death of the legendary frontman best known from the rock band Tom Petty and the HeartBreakers.

According to an initial LAPD source via CBS News and Variety, The singer was reportedly taken to the UCLA Santa Monica hospital on Monday after being found unconscious in his Malibu home, it was then later reported that he was taken off life support soon after.

Those initial reports were then followed up by tweets from CBS and the LAPD that claimed that they actually had “no information about the passing of singer Tom Petty” and any information has been “inadvertently provided”, with both apologizing.

We will keep you updated on the status of Tom Petty, we here at Rockably are holding out hope that he stays strong and this crazy day of reporting will end on a good note.
