We all love a good conspiracy theory that can stretch our imagination beyond its limits. Humans love to challenge the status quo, so why wouldn’t we question if we landed on the moon, or who actually killed JFK? These questions keep people up at night who beg to know the *ahem* ‘real’ truth behind some of the biggest stories in history.
Celebrities aren’t immune to this, either. For years, there have been rumors floating around about your favorite celebrities. We’re about to dive straight into some of the wildest celebrity conspiracy theories that definitely aren’t true and should not be treated as such. Still, it’s fun to imagine, right?
Avril Lavigne Has Been Replaced
In the peak of her success, her record company panicked when one day they discovered that Avril Lavigne had dropped dead. Worried that this may affect the progress of a new album, they quickly found a replacement to trick her fans and keep her success alive. Meet Melissa Fans: the real person who has literally replaced the singer to ensure a fruitful career. Many fans have posted side-by-side comparisons of Lavigne’s changing face, that definitely has nothing to do with plastic surgery.
Oh Lorde-y, I Hope There Is A Conspiracy
Lorde was 40 years old when she wanted a change in career and suddenly made it big as the pop star we all know today. Unfortunately, society was less than kind to older women, and so she adapted her birth certificate to bring her age down. She became the 17-year-old sensation we all know today. To this day, people are still unaware they are actually admiring the talent of a woman in her mid-40s. At the risk of being exposed as a fraudster, Lorde must live out the rest of her days as a teenager with plenty of ‘melodrama’.
Britney Spears Worked With President Bush
Teen idol and 1990s pop sensation Britney Spears went and did it again, causing an electoral upset right before the 2006 midterm election. She had colluded with President George Bush to cause an outrageous news cycle the day before the election was to take place. Amazingly, Democrats and liberals were so upset at the news of her breakup with K-Fed that they didn’t go to vote. This didn’t stop the Democrats from still earning wide gains across the country.
Keanu Reeves Will Live Forever
Keanu Reeves is 54 years of age but doesn’t look any different to when he first came on to television screens in the 1980s. That’s because he is actually immortal and refuses to age to prolong his career. His 35-year career has consequently allowed him to appeal to multiple generations of fans, from Speed, The Matrix to the Sad Keanu meme hitting the internet in 2015. He will live on beyond any of us, staring in the inevitable Maxtrix reboots until the end of time.
The CIA Murdered Bob Marley
At the peak of his success, Bob Marley was determined to expose the CIA’s attempt to put an end to the Jamaican Prime Minister Michale Manley. A man with a huge global appeal, the American organization couldn’t risk Marley speaking out at their intentions, and decided that actions must be taken. They murdered the famous Reggae singer. He had already battled melanoma and cancers in the past and so it was easy to navigate. His legacy lives on through is 11 children by 8 different women.
Beyonce is Solange’s Mother
When Beyonce started her career in Destiny’s Child, she became an inspiration to younger women everywhere. Therefore, it was imperative that no one discovers her secret daughter, Solange, who she had welcomed while still a teenager. The entire Knowles family decided it was best to cover this up by adjusting some birth certificates and playing along for the rest of the days. This is eerily similar to the 100% true story that actor Jack Nicholson discovered his sister was actually his mother.
Beyonce Was Never Pregnant
IVF treatment is the latest craze in Hollywood these days. Prominent figures such as Brad and Ange and Kim and Kanye have used other women to carry children. We can now reveal that Beyonce had faked her pregnancy by wearing a cushion in public. She was never pregnant with Blue Ivy and pretended. This was to appear more human in front of her fans and have an angelic glow for 9 months to help promote her newest album.
Stevie Wonder Isn’t Blind
Stevie Wonder is a fantastic performer and artist regardless of his blindness. But he needed a ‘one-up’ on his competitors when he first got big in the 1960s. Being a fan of Ray Charles, he decided to follow in his footsteps and pretend to be blind like his hero. It’s a hard act to keep up for an entire life, and he has frequently attended basketball games in the hope no one would notice. One time, he even caught a falling microphone stand – and struggled to explain how he saw it.
Tupac Moved To Cuba
Tupac has been the center of a myriad of controversial conspiracy theories in the past, but this one isn’t like the rest. When the whole world was wondering about his whereabouts or whether he was even dead or not, Tupac was sipping his cocktails on a beach in Cuba. The man loved cigars but couldn’t be seen down there due to sanction on the island. He did what any sane cigar lover would do: he faked his death and moved to the island.
‘HiddleSwift’ Was Never Even A Thing
A woman so famously secluded never shares too many intimate details about her personal life. She even hides in suitcases when traveling in airports. There’s no reason she would willfully expose her relationship status to the public, so she created a faux-romance with British actor Tom Hiddleston to make Calvin Harris jealous. It confirms that they never actually dated and the relationship was nothing more than album material. Better to shake this theory off.
Stanley Kubrick Directed The Moon Landing Footage
The year after Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, the director got a call in the middle of the night. He answered to none other than President Richard Nixon. He needed the director’s help in making credible footage for America to show the world. That way, the US would be victorious in the space race against Russia. He quickly filmed some footage on soundstage 51 in Burbank, CA, and the rest is history…or not.
Katy Perry Is Actually JonBenét Ramsey
JonBenét Ramsey, the child star and beauty pageant winner, was tragically killed in 1996 with no resolution to her case. Questionable alibies and evidence suggest that no one will know how she died – or even if she did. Katy Perry shares an uncanny resemblance to the young girl and many people claim that she is the same person. Seems quite unlikely, but it doesn’t stop theorists from deciphering the evidence and claims on the internet.
Paul McCartney Died
In 1967, Paul McCartney was killed in a car crash and was replaced by a look-a-like. The theory became realized due to their worldwide fame. The other members of the boyband have even given clear instructions and details about his death: have you ever played Revolution 9 backward? You might just realize that they were in on it the whole time. It might explain this version of McCartney and his desire to sing nothing but Hey, Jude for 40 years.
Anne Hathaway is Married To William Shakespeare
It’s no secret that the English poet and playwright was married to a lady called Anne Hathaway, but did you know it’s the same Hathaway from The Princess Diaries fame? Shakespeare sent her into the future where she could live and work among us in the future. She has been amazed to see that her husband’s work is still being read and discussed 400 years later. Anne Hathaway couldn’t be famous in her first life, so he promised her fame in her next one.
Nicholas Cage Is A Vampire
This is… not even the strangest thing about Nicholas Cage. Signs that he is a vampire really shouldn’t surprise anyone who has been paying close attention. Most of the scenes in he’s in are filmed at night. He had pet Octopi and Snakes at his home that he would openly communicate with to improve his acting. There’s even a picture of him from the 1800s – literal pictorial evidence shows his true vampiric roots.
OJ Simpson Fathered Khloe Kardashian
It’s hard to keep up with all the members of the Kardashian clan. There are 10 children all born to various men and women – making America’s Royal Family just as incestuous as its British counterpart. It’s no secret that Khloe looks vastly different to her sisters. This is due to an affair between Kris Jenner and OJ Simpson during the world’s most famous trial. Khloe doesn’t deny this, meaning we might see the most amazing spin-off in Kardashian in television history.
Marlyn Monroe Was Murdered
You can’t expect to sleep with both Kennedys and expect to live long enough to sign a book deal. The famous 1950s and 1960s sex symbol also gleaned interest from the mafia and claimed to confirm the existence of UFOs. Her suicide would be east to stage since she was a manic depressive and often staged false overdoses for attention. Her murder helped silence some of the questionable acts that would remain a secret for the rest of the 1960s.
Ted Cruz Is The Zodiac Killer
This was floated around the time of the 2016 election when Cruz was the frontrunner against then-candidate Donald Trump. They went head-to-head and Trump said he thought Cruz was the Zodiac Killer. In the years following the election, Cruz has neither confirmed nor denied the fact. Although he does occasionally mention it on his social media accounts. In an attempt to appeal to young people, he confesses to being a murderer. How do you do, fellow kids?
Justin Bieber Is A Lizard
According to Australians, a nation known for their reliability and accountability, they’ve seen Beebs transform into a lizard on occasion. Who needs actual evidence when the Ozzies claim to have witnessed it with their own eyes. His bodyguard, who is completely aware of his reptilian tendencies, refuses to let people take pictures of him when he is in his preferred state. The pop star has remained in his human form throughout his entire marriage to Hailey Baldwin.
Kris Jenner Is A Leaker
The Kardashians wouldn’t be America’s Royal Family today if it wasn’t for the credible sex tape from one of its most prominent members. Kim came on to our screens in 2003 when someone leaked the tape that would make its way around the world. It was, in fact, her own mother to do the deed and ensure a healthy kickstart to her daughter’s career. Today, it is buried deep on the internet and behind 15 seasons of Keeping Up The Kardashians.
