Gotye was forced to deny reports he had committed suicide, after he was reported to be dead by CNN.
On Sunday night, rumours begin to circulate on Twitter that the singer had shot himself, leading CNN to report his death.
This led Gotye to take to Twitter and deny he was dead, writing: "I'm not dead. #Pinkalbumtitles'."
His bandmate Tim Shiel then joked about the gaff, tweeting ''It saddens me to confirm the news of Gotye's passing - he suffered cardiac arrest while flying a unicorn over a double rainbow.''
