Celebrities are always the center of attention, whether it's baby news, who they're dating, or what they may have posted on social media. But there are some things celebrities would rather not be the center of...and those are conspiracies.
These are some of the most popular celebrity conspiracies that have surface, and you get to judge if you think they're legit!
1. Beyoncé's Fake Pregnancy
When Beyoncé was pregnant with her first child, Blue Ivy, there was a lot of speculation that she was actually using a surrogate and wasn't actually pregnant. Fuel was added to this fire when she appeared on The Wendy Williams Show and it appeared as though her belly completely folded in on itself. Her reps called these rumors of "fake pregnancy" "stupid, ridiculous, and false."
2. Michael and Latoya Jackson Are The Same Person
Despite numerous pictures of the siblings together, many fans of the Jackson family believe Michael and Latoya, who are two years apart, are actually the same person.
3. Courtney Love Killed Kurt Cobain
Though it was ruled that Kurt Cobain killed himself, there are a group of people who believe that he was actually murdered. There are a lot of suspects, according to these people, but at the top of everyone's list is Courtney Love. According to private investigator Tom Grant, who was actually hired by Love herself to investigate the death, part of Cobain's suicide letter was handwritten by Courtney Love.
4. Katy Perry is JonBenét Ramsey
This one is probably the biggest conspiracy theory you'll hear. According to many believers, JonBenét Ramsey never died, just her name did. They believe it was all a hoax so that the singer Katy Perry could emerge.
"Nobody died, nobody got hurt," claims Dave Johnson, one of the conspirators. "That sacrifice was in name only, and that was to get something, and that something was to become a star."
Ramsey's parents and Perry's parents look eerily similar, so this theory won't be going away any time soon.
5. O.J. Simpson is Khloé Kardashian's Father
Khloé has always been adamant that her father is Robert Kardashian, regardless of what people say. While she does look a little different from her other sisters, that's not uncommon in families. There have been rumors that Khloé is actually the illegitimate daughter of O.J. Simpson, seeing as he and Robert were close. However, when Kris Jenner, Khloe's mom, brought up the idea of a paternity test to Khloé, the sister refused.
"Seriously, my dad is Robert Kardashian. My other dad is Bruce Jenner. If you f****d other people during the same time and you do not know, go on Maury."
6. Marilyn Monroe Was Murdered
Though her death was ruled a probable suicide, there are a lot of people who believe Marilyn Monroe was murdered due to her connection to JFK. They believe the CIA ordered her death in order to prevent any news about her affair with JFK from leaking out. The CIA also believed that Monroe had knowledge about possible aliens, and they didn't want that information leaking, either.
7. Prince Harry Isn't Charles's Son
Talk about a Royal Scandal! Around the time Prince Harry was born, it was revealed that Princess Diana was having an affair with James Hewitt. This, of course, sparked rumors that Hewitt was actually Prince Harry's father, not Charles. Hewitt says this rumor is “worse for [Harry than me], probably, poor chap.”
Despite admitting that he and Harry look alike and have the same hair, Hewitt vehemently denies the rumor. "There is really no possibility that I am Harry's father. I can absolutely assure you that I am not."
8. J.K. Rowling Isn't Real
J.K. Rowling wrote the entire Harry Potter series...or did she? Rowling's story of being a struggling mother on welfare to a literal billionaire seems too good to be true for a lot of people. There's a theory that Harry Potter was put together by a team of expert researchers and advertisers who created the books and franchise. They believe J.K. Rowling is just an actress who was hired to play the part of the author.
9. Stephen King Killed John Lennon
There's an entire subset of people who believe that Stephen King was hired by Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan to kill John Lennon. They don't believe Mark David Chapman was involved at all. According to these theorists, Nixon and Reagan wanted Lennon's anti-war message out of the United States, so they hired King to pose as Mark David Chapman and kill Lennon.
10. Nicolas Cage Is A Vampire
Jack Mord, an antiques dealer, found a photo of a man he believes to be Nicolas Cage in 1870.
“Personally, I believe it’s him and that he is some sort of walking undead/vampire, et cetera, who quickens/reinvents himself once every 75 years or so,” he wrote. “150 years from now, he might be a politician, the leader of a cult, or a talk show host.”
Nic Cage himself responded to the theory, saying it's not true.
"You can't take picture of vampires. I don't drink blood, and the last time I looked in the mirror I had a reflection."
That sounds like something a vampire would say...
