Various rumors regarding the death of TikTok star Ed Matthews have been floating around the internet with claims that he and two other people were recently killed in a car crash in Essex.
These rumors have been denied by TikToker himself, who took his account to post a video that corroborates that he is very much alive. It’s unclear how the rumors started, but a video containing an article from ‘The Guardian’ has been making the rounds, among other sources.

Ed Matthews debunks the death hoax
Ed Matthews is alive and well. Rumors about his death have been floating around the net claiming that he was involved in a fatal car accident along with two others. This, however, is far from the truth. He recently took to his social media accounts to show his followers that he is alive.
In the video, he claimed that many people have been claiming that “the matrix has it.” He added that he did not work for the CIA, swearing on that statement. The video has over 333k views and is captioned with:
I’m alive and well man #edmatthewstokky #matrix
This comes after multiple sources claimed that he had died. A TikTok posted by @themoneyhubuk showing a clip from a Guardian article titled “TikTok star Ed Mathews dead and two others injured in Essex car crash” was among several videos falsely claiming his death.
However, the Guardian article that has been seen in several videos does not appear to be posted anywhere. This is a false story and the article has not actually been published.
