Emanuel Steward Is Alive & The Family Is Upset Of False Reports
OS ANGELES (LALATE) – Emanuel Steward is not dead. A false Emanuel Stewarddeath report today has been denied by his family. The trainer’s family tells news that Emanuel Steward did not died this October 2012, as erroneously reported elsewhere this morning.
TMZ erroneously reported today “Emanuel Steward Dies — Legendary Boxing Trainer Dead at 68″. The news article published roughly an hour ago also falsely stated “Emanuel Steward — one of the most famous trainers in the history of boxing — passed away this morning”. The Detroit Free Press and several other news sites continued to report Steward’s death.
Thereafter, the Detroit Free Press corrected their story to report a statement from Steward’s sister. She confirms he is very much alive.”At this point, I’m asking EVERYBODY to LEAVE US ALONE so that we can comfort and communicate with Emanuel”, Diane Steward-Jones said in a news statement today. “His surgical team just dropped by and scoffed at the reports he is dead.”
Tom Leyden of Detroit-WXYZ received a news statement also from Emanuel’s sister. “You can tell folks that he is alive and being treated by some of the best experts in the world. The Steward family is dismayed and greatly disheartened and disappointed that during this personally challenging time, people would callously and thoughtlessly run wild with untrue statements in order to garner their ‘15 minutes of fame.’ “
She also told news “Where is the moral compass of those seeking to capitalize on this situation? Does anybody take the time to check out the facts anymore? Many of those issuing reckless statements have our phone numbers as well as Emanuel’s office number and yet, they haven’t called, just issued statements that are terrorizing Emanuel’s children, siblings and relatives that aren’t able to be here at the hospital.”
