Seinfeld's Newman isn't dead - Twitter got it wrong

SEINFELD actor Wayne Knight is not dead - despite what the internet says.

Knight, who played Newman in the television series, was reported to have been killed in a car crash near the Pennslyvania-New York border, according to the website TMZ.today, a phony site not affiliated with gossip outlet TMZ.

But reports of his demise are not true, and the actor took to Twitter to confirm he was alive and well.

The 58-year-old is currently appearing in television show, The Exes.
