    Report: Bernie Mac is dead at 50

    DAILY NEWS STAFF

    Saturday, August 9th 2008, 8:04 AM

    The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that comedian Bernie Mac died early Saturday morning, citing a close friend of the funnyman's family.

    Mac, 50, was being treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago for pneumonia. His publicist had repeatedly denied he was dying.

    Sun-Times columnist Stella Foster said she received a call from a family friend an hour after the "Ocean's Eleven" star was pronounced dead.

    "It brought tears to my eyes because Bernie Mac has always been my all-time favorite entertainer and comedian. It pains me to have to report that," Foster said.

    Last weekend, several Web sites erroneously reported the comedian's death, and the Sun-Times report could not be immediately confirmed.
