Bernie Mac is still alive and recovering from pneumonia despite the rumors that he died:
“Bernie Mac is still alive and being treated in a Chicago hospital for pneumonia and is expected to make a full recovery. The actor-comedian (real name: Bernard Jeffery McCullough), 50, was hospitalized in Chicago for pneumonia.
“Mr. Mac is responding well to treatment and will be released soon. He asked that his privacy and that of his family is respected while he gets well.”
It was further stated that the pneumonia was not related to Mac’s 2005 diagnosis of sarcoidosis, an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in organs such as the lungs or lymph nodes.
We wish him a speedy recovery. That pneumonia can be no joke..
