Jon Bon Jovi has laughed off internet rumours that he's passed away.

The 'Livin' On A Prayer' hitmaker took to his twitter account to reassure fans he's still alive, and posted a picture to dispel speculation he'd met his untimely end.

He uploaded a picture of himself with a big smile on his face as he holds up a piece of paper with the date on, and he tweeted: "Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey - jbj. (sic)"

His twitter read: "Rest assured that Jon is fine! This photo was just taken."

One blog article had claimed Jon had gone into cardiac arrest at the Empress Hotel in his home state of New Jersey and said he had died later in the evening.

The 49-year-old musician is currently starring in movie 'New Year's Eve', which features a star-studded cast including Lea Michele, Katherine Heigl, Zac Efron and Halle Berry.
