The rapper and former Dancing on Ice contestant appeared on Twitter on Thursday night (August 10) to quash inaccurate claims that he had died in a car accident.
"Retweet this I AM ALIVE and kicking. Crazy rumours about me dying in a car crash have gone viral all around the world. Ninjas never die," he wrote.
The incident marks the second time in as many months that Vanilla Ice has been forced to deny rumours of his apparent demise.
Eddie Murphy is also a victim of numerous similar hoaxes, having been erroneously reported dead twice in 2012 alone.
Musician Jon Bon Jovi took a creative approach to inaccurate reports of his passing last Christmas, quashing the rumours by posting a photograph of himself holding a sign stating the date and time along with the message: 'Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey'.
