Van Vicker Reacts To Reports That He Has Ebola

Ghanaian actor Van Vicker is preparing to take editors of an online publication to court after they falsely alleged he had contracted the deadly Ebola virus.

An article which surfaced online last week (07Oct14) suggested the star had fallen ill with the disease while shooting the Bendu Sudan movie sequel in Monrovia, Liberia and had been quarantined after being denied entry back to Ghana.

However, Vicker insists the report is completely fabricated.

He says, “The worst thing about being popular is when rumours are spread about you for no reason. But this was a full blown article. Not a rumour. That’s the most disgusting bit of it. Garbage! It was just ridiculous but my worry wasn’t really me. My worry was my kids, how they took it.”

And Vicker, 37, reveals he is determined to follow through with his legal threat in a bid to put a stop to the spread of hurtful, false gossip.

He continues, “We will be serving them (with legal papers) soon… They can get ready to be served. The good thing is not necessarily what I’m going to make from them (in damages). That is not the primary goal. I want to put a stop to all these false stories that go out now and again.”

The deadly Ebola disease has already killed more than 4,000 people in West Africa since the outbreak began earlier this year (14).
