"Pawn Stars" star Chumlee has taken to social media to prove that he is, in fact, not dead. Chumlee, born Austin Russell, fell victim to a death hoax earlier this week when rumors began to circulate that he had died from a heart attack. "May we live long, Rich forever," the reality star tweeted amid a sea of condolences on social media. Russell's co-star and boss Rick Harrison also debunked the rumors on Twitter. Breaking news: CHUMLEE IS ALIVE & WELL! He is actually filming today but we all really appreciate everyone's concern!" Rick Harrison (@GoldSilverPawn) March 12, 2014 "Pawn Stars" airs on the History channel and follows the daily operations of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas. The shop is family-owned, and Russell is the childhood friend of Corey Harrison, owner Rick Harrison's son. You can see Chumlee alive and well on "Pawn Stars" at 9 p.m. ET on Thursdays.
