Rumor that Jay-Z had been killed in plane crash in North Carolina, while flying to Las Vegas for this weekend's big fight is false.

Everyone can take a sigh now that representative from Def Jam has put to rest a rumor claims had been killed in plane crash in North Carolina, while flying to Las Vegas for this weekend's big fight.

Rumors are swirling early Friday May 4th that Jay-Z was in a plane crash while he was heading to watch the / Floyd Mayweather Jr. boxing fight in Las Vegas this weekend. It is said that his plane crashed near Asheville, North Carolina in the Smoky Mountains.

Representatives for the star's label Def Jam, in fact, claim the death reports as "false." TMZ would later confirm that a plane carrying three unidentified men did crash near Asheville and Jay-Z was not on board.
