Evel Knievel died today at the age of 69 reports his official website. He reportedly died of liver failure triggered by hepatitis C. He contracted hepatitis C 15 years ago from a blood transfusion.
Evel was recently in the news for ending a dispute with Kanye West over Kanye’s 2006 video “Touch the Sky.” In the video Kaney plays “Evel Kanyevel” and copies one of Evel’s famous stunts.
Evel’s rep told TMZ, “The world has lost a one of a kind human being. Someone like this we’ll never never see again.”
