Chef CZN Burak debunks rumours of death or brain tumour


DUBAI – Celebrity chef Ozdemir Burak, who is popularly known as CZN Burak, debunked rumours that he has died or is suffering from a brain tumour.

“Hello everyone, thank you very much for your kind wishes, there is no bad situation, please don’t pay attention to baseless news and posts, thank you, I’m glad to have you. The most beautiful bond is love,” CZN Burak wrote on social media.

The rumours surfaced after CZN Burak shared on Instagram and Facebook photos of himself with a surgical gown and head cap while on a hospital bed.

“Only a small checkup love is the greatest bond,” CZN Burak wrote in the caption. He did not mention the reason for the health checkup. The Insta-famous chef, who has restaurants in Turkey and Dubai, has noticeably lost weight in recent months.

CZN Burak shot to fame with social media videos of himself smiling into the camera while preparing large-sized portions of food. He has more than 34 million followers on Instagram alone.

The celebrity chef spends his time between Turkey and Dubai. Days after posting his photo at the hospital, he posted another one showing him visiting the Museum of the Future in Dubai.
