Clones, fake babies and vehicular manslaughter: 10 of the wildest celebrity conspiracy theories.

“That sacrifice was in name only, and that was to get something, and that something was to become a star. JonBenet became Katy Perry, and that’s a fact.”

I mean, that depends what you thinks ‘fact’ means… but… okay.

In early 2016, fact-checking publication Snopes debunked the theory. It was definitely unnecessary to do so. But they did it anyway.

Nicolas Cage and John Travolta are immortal and engaged in a centuries-long feud.

That was a strange sentence to type out.

In 2011, a man tried to sell a photo of a Confederate prisoner of war on eBay, and that prisoner looked exactly like Nicolas Cage.

The owner of the photo was quoted in The Hollywood Reporter as saying he personally believed it was the actor, and questioned if he was some sort of immortal being.

Then… the listing disappeared.

People latched onto the theory and considered that Cage may have dropped hints in his movies. 

He played a man convinced he was a vampire in Vampire’s Kiss and a 3000-year-old wizard named Balthazar in The Magician’s Apprentice.

“Now look, I don’t drink blood and the last time I looked in the mirror I had a reflection,” Cage once told David Letterman when asked about it.
