As Twitchy reported, rock icon Lou Reed passed away Sunday at the age of 71. Condolences came pouring in, but for some reason, many of them were directed to the family of Lou Bega, the singer who hit the charts in 1999 with his cover of “Mambo No. 5.”

Not only is Bega alive and well; he posted a notice to Facebook to straighten out the situation:

R.I.P Lou Reed the Genius who took Walks on the Wild side.
Ps: i have been receiving Tons of condolences because of a Journalist confusing our Identities. Lou Bega sends his condolences to mr.Reeds Family.

That wasn’t enough to stop to momentum, though.
