Pawn Stars Chumlee is one of the most known personalities of the show. Hence, fans got worried when speculations about his death began circulating on the Internet recently.
One of the reasons fueling the rumors is that the TV personality has been inactive on social media recently and fans were not used to it. Before his inactivity, Chumlee just came back on Twitter. In fact, he shared a post several days ago.
Another reason could point to fans’ eagerness to know Chumlee’s plans for this year after an unfavorable 2016. In March 2016, Chumlee was arrested following a raid in his house over allegations of sexual assault. Multiple firearms and illegal drugs were also found in his property.
Chumlee was charged with 20 felony counts, including drug and weapons charges. The reality TV star pleaded guilty to a felony weapons charge, unlawful possession of a firearm, and to gross misdemeanor of attempted drug possession. He accepted a deal which calls for three years probation and counseling.
However, this is not the first time that Chumlee was rumored to be dead. In March 2014, he also fell victim to a death hoax.
