Patrick Swayze

Despite a report from KISS-FM radio station in Florida claiming that actor Patrick Swayze died early Tuesday, reps for the cancer-stricken star say he is alive and well, blasting the death claims as “categorically false.”

“This is to confirm that Patrick Swayze did not pass away this morning contrary to severely reckless reports stemming from a radio station in Jacksonville, Florida. Patrick Swayze is alive, well and is enjoying his life and he continues to respond to treatment,” the actor’s rep said in a statement this afternoon.

The Dirty Dancing star, who also starred in the critically-acclaimed 1990 film Ghost, has been undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer since March 2008.
