Official statement in response to rumors -
"I have been made aware of recent stories across the media and internet reporting my death last month. This has understandably caused friends and family to make frantic calls, left them shaken, sobbing and in a state of shock.
While many may have considered me dead long ago (artistically or otherwise) and I do confirm I am living with AIDS, I am still very much here, and wish to let my friends and supporters know that I intend to be for quite a while.
Have sensed no malicious intent. Only half-truth's, whispers and rumors snowballing into this story. Let's everybody be cool, and have faith. Andy."
