Beloved US TV star Jaleel White is laughing off reports he committed suicide while partying in Miami, Florida.

News of the death of the actor, who played Steve Urkel in TV hit "Family Matters," has been circulating on the Internet for a month after a bogus story reported his demise.

The report was backed by news that White's neighbour alerted police after hearing a gunshot coming from the actor's Los Angeles apartment.
The hoax also featured bogus quotes from White's former "Family Matters" co-stars.

But White was living large at an Ocean Drive magazine private party last week (08JUN06).

Here's the hoax article:

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) ? Jaleel White, who played 'nerdy' neighbor Steve Urkel on "Family Matters" found dead Monday. He was 29 years old.

White was pronounced dead on arrival after admission to an LA hospital early Monday morning. The death is being investigated as a suicide.

Born Jaleel Ahmad White, he began his career at the age of three acting in television commercials, before landing guest spots on shows such as "The Jeffersons" and "Mr. Belvedere." It was in 1989 that White landed the role that would make him famous, playing wacky neighbor 'Steve Urkel' on the ABC program "Family Matters."

Following the cancellation of "Family Matters" in 1997, friends claim White became obsessed with the character, and grew despondent, despite further successes as star and producer of the UPN sitcom "Grownups", and as a writer for NBA.com

Neighbor and friend, Bradley Spencer alerted police after hearing what he described as "a loud bang" coming from White's Los Angeles apartment.

Authorities state that upon entering the home they discovered a young African-American male with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Also found was a note, which read simply "Did I do that?", a popular catchphrase from the show.

"Jaleel was an uncommonly good man, an exceptional role model and a great comedic actor," said William Bickley, who created the series, and Thomas L. Miller, one of the executive producers, in a joint statement.

"We feel privileged to have known him and worked with him. He'll be missed and remembered every day by his many, many friends," they said.

Actress Kellie Williams ? Laura Winslow on the series ? described White as a consummate professional actor. "Everyone adored him," she said.

"We have all lost a dear, dear brother," said Reginald VelJohnson, who played Carl Winslow.

White, an only child, is survived by "cousins, aunts, uncles, and wonderful friends," Bickley said.

"Also found was a note, which read simply "Did I do that?", a popular catchphrase from the show." :sidelol:

Jaleel White wrote a series of columns for NBA.com a few years back. They were freakin' hilarious.

Jaleel White was such an excellent actor. I liked him on family matters but he also guest cameo in Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
