"Wolf of Wall Street" star Leonardo DiCaprio has become the latest celebrity victim of an internet hoax as social networking sites were abuzz with rumours about the actor's death.

According to a celebrity gossip website, the 39-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio was such a novice on the slopes that he lost control of his snowboard at the luxury Zermatt ski resort and hit a tree at neck-breaking speed on April 10, reported Daily Star.

The site then said that Leonardo DiCaprio was killed by the impact of the crash.

Leonardo DiCaprio however has denied the rumours and said, "I would love to meet the person who is starting rumours of my death."

This the second time that the superstar has been targeted.

Back in April 2009, Leonardo DiCaprio's spokesman had to issue a statement assuring fans that he was still alive and kicking.
