A recent tabloid report claiming legendary singer/songwriter Barry Manilow is ill and dying is absolutely false, his rep told OK! exclusively on Wednesday.

In a statement to OK!, Manilow's rep said:

"We just saw a pretty outrageous headline on one of the tabloids claiming that Barry is ill and down to 100 pounds. Granted, he's pretty trim. But 1oo pounds? Give us a break. Even Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen weigh more than 100 pounds. And no... he's not ill.

What he rehearsing for his new show in Las Vegas, recording his new album, recording an original rock album. Putting together an arena show and sometimes even enjoying the beach.

By the way...we also saw a headline that said aliens had invaded Pomona. That headline, of course, is true."
