Actor James Avery has been forced to deny his death following recent rumours.

The actor, who played Uncle Phil in 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' said that he was "p*ssed" when people began to post RIP messages online.

E! reports that Tweeters mistook the actor, who starred alongside Will Smith in the funny sitcom, for a Scottish footballer - Phil O'Donnell.

Someone called the star's mum about his death and apparently she began to cry.

His publicist said:"Someone called his mum, and she called his house crying. That's why he was so upset."

The 61-year-old is still acting and makes appearances in 'The Karate Kid' and the upcoming 'Transformers 3'.
