Tom Petty’s daughter says her father is not dead!

Tom Petty’s daugther posts father’s photo with “R.I.P” caption




After a lot of speculation, many big websites, like Rolling Stone said earlier that Tom Petty was dead, but now, things are uncertain. Reports say that the singer is seriously ill in hospital after a suspected heart attack.

The account@dadlivesmatteronelove, that several people have attributed to Annakim Violette, the daughter of Tom Petty, posted a searing attack on Rolling Stone today amid widespread reports of the legendary rockers death.

If we take the account at face value, Violette has been posting tributes to her father all day, and one such post is one of his old Rolling Stone covers, where she goes off on the magazine for its “tabloid” nature, and for reporting his death when it has not been confirmed:

Early reports

He was reportedly rushed to the UCLA Santa Monica hospital on Monday after being found unconscious in his Malibu home. Initial reports, based on LAPD sources who spoke to CBS News and Variety, said Petty had died.

However, LAPD later tweeted that the department has “no information about the passing of singer Tom Petty” and any information had been “inadvertently provided”. The force apologized “for any inconvenience in this reporting”.
