James Haskell, who currently plays for Wasps, claims he spotted news of his passing on "fake" sites.
So to dispel the myth he had intact died of an overdose, the 31-year-old flanker recorded a YouTube video.
Sat on a sofa in a vest he said: "You may have seen there are quite a lot of fake news stories operating on Facebook and Twitter". James Haskell took to YouTube after rumours of his death were circulating online "That, A, I died, B, I died of a drug overdose or, C, I died of a steroid overdose".
That my career is over because I've got a naughty secret that I'm dying to sell drugs. "Also I've had to quit rugby and I've left everyone my family and run away.
"Just to make it clear this is absolute rubbish."
Haskell spotted news of his passing on 'fake' sites
He continued to say he was almost "humbled" to be considered in the same vein as two legendary NFL players, Tom Brady and JJ Watt, who were also victim to the ploy.
Sites trying to sell knockoff supplement will often use the names of famous people in fake headlines to get them onto their website to try to flog the gear.
"Rest assured, I am not dead, I am not disgraced," he added. "And we get drug tested all the time."
"For those of you who wish I was dead," he added. "Better luck next time!!"
