If we were to believe every conspiracy theory we read then we’d say George Bush was behind 9/11, Jay Z and Beyonce are part of the Illuminati and Paul McCartney died in 1966.
But the one thing conspiracy theories have in common is they all have a significant amount of ‘evidence’ that backs them up.
The latest news in celeb conspiracy theories? Apparently our favourite punk-rock early 00’s singer, Avril Lavigne, died in 2003.
Because, of course she did.
The theory comes from a Brazillian fan site who claims the 'original' Avril was replaced by a 'new' Avril, an actress, thirteen years ago.
The site offers composite photos of original Avril and her double, 'Melissa Vandella', to show the differences between the two.
An 'Avril Ranger' (the name the Sk8er Boi singer's fan base have given themselves) has backed up this theory and says,
"As we all know, it is a popularly believed that Canadian pop singer Avril Lavigne took her own life in 2003 shortly after her parents divorce and was replaced by a doppelganger who left several clues about the death of the original Avril Lavigne in the lyrics of her follow-up album."
The user, Vulps, then goes on to list the songs in question, which were released after original Avril's supposed death. Like these lyrics from 'Nobody's Home',
"She wants to go home, but nobody's home.
It's where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go to dry her eyes.
