After confirming Tom Petty’s death, CBS has walked back its initial report after a clarification from the Los Angeles Police Department. The LAPD said it had “no information about the passing” of the singer in a pair of tweets posted Monday afternoon (October 2).

TMZ, who first broke the news of Petty suffering from a cardiac arrest, reported in its latest update that Petty was clinging to life, but wasn’t expected to live past Monday.

The family reportedly has a do not resuscitate (DNR) order on Petty.

Although he’s not expected to survive the day, for now, his death is not confirmed.

“The LAPD has no information about the passing of singer Tom Petty,” the tweet read. “Initial information was inadvertantly provided to some media sources. However, the LAPD has no investigative role in this matter. We apologize for any inconvenience in this reporting.”

Petty was reportedly rushed to the hospital on Sunday (October 1) after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Tom Petty, beloved rock icon, reportedly passed away on Monday (October 2). According to TMZ, he was brought from his Malibu home to the UCLA Santa Monica Hospital on Sunday night (October 1) in full cardiac arrest after he was found unconscious and not breathing.

He was put on life support, but the decision was reportedly made early Monday to take him off due to his lack of brain activity.

Petty was sampled by a bevy of Hip Hop artists, including Chamillionaire, Pimp C, De La Soul and South Park Mexican.

Born in Gainesville, Florida, Petty dropped out of high school at 17 to pursue a life in rock-n-roll. In the late ’70s, he established Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, which would eventually attain commercial success. The group released 13 albums, culminating with 2014’s Hypnotic Eye. 

He was an integral member of The Traveling Wilburys, alongside Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, The Beatles’ George Harrison and Electric Light Orchestra’s Jeff Lynne. The supergroup was established in the late ’80s and released two albums — Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 and Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3.

In 1990, Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group. The album was also nominated for Album of the Year.

Petty also had a plentiful solo career. His 1994 album, Wildflowers, spawned the hit “You Don’t Know How It Feels” and was produced by Def Jam Recordings co-founder Rick Rubin.

Although there was initial confusion surrounding Petty’s condition, sadly, he reportedly didn’t pull through.

Petty was 66.
