Tyler Perry is shutting down rumors after it was reported that ‘House of Payne’ actress Cassi Davis passed away at 58 of lung cancer.
The filmmaker took to Instagram Monday to call out the hoax and let fans know Davis is alive and well.
“THIS IS A LIE,” he wrote in bold red text over a screenshot of the news story.
Perry mentioned that he was just on the phone with the “House of Payne” actress, after receiving numerous condolence calls.
“After I’ve gotten several calls from people giving me their condolences and I didn’t know what they were talking about, I was sent this article that’s going around.”
“I don’t know how she could have died and nobody told me or her. So I called her and asked her was she dead and she said hell no! Can whoever is responsible for this please stop you better be careful when you speak death over a child of God,” Perry said.
“This woman is loved by millions and you’re hurting a lot of people. Cassi is fine living her best life with no worries, no cares, no social media, and no drama. She’s waiting to shoot the next season of House of Payne.”
