Over the years, numerous celebrities, including Betty White, Dolly Parton, and Paul McCartney, have fallen victim to death hoaxes. Tito has also become part of the death rumors list.
This death hoax incident occurred after a well-known female comedian, Luenell Campbell, circulated an Instagram post claiming Tito’s demise.
According to reports, Luenell wrote in her post:
“Popularly known as Tito Jackson “Toriano Adaryll:” passed away from multiple health complications on Sunday. “At about 11 a.m. ET on Sunday (August 20, 2023), our beloved singer Tito Jackson passed away.

“He now joins the long list of famous people who have fallen for this scam. Stop trusting anything you read online; he is still alive and healthy.”
Despite senior news producer for TMZ Loren Lorosa revealing that the report was untrue, netizens have become angry about the false claim, calling it careless, upsetting, and damaging to the singer’s devoted followers and reacting negatively to Luenell’s untrue assertions on Tito Jackson’s passing.
Luenell also expressed regret and removed the false information. She later posted another apology statement on her Twitter account:
“THIS IS NOT TRUE__The next time, I will absolutely verify my sources, but this is where I got that ugly roomer from in the first place.
