Celebrities are larger than life, or at least that’s how the media portrays them. Surely they must be larger than death, then. That’s the main reason diehard fans have trouble letting go of their idols.
This article is not about Elvis; we all know he must still be on some island drinking margaritas. Elvis alive; that’s classical by now.
Instead, we’ll have a look at conspiracy theories surrounding other celebrities purported to be still very much alive.
10 /10 Steve Jobs
Undoubtedly, Steve Jobs was one of the most gifted people of our modern times. A true genius, and we have a lot to thank him for.
His battle with cancer was well documented, and his 2011 passing saddened the world. However, some believe Jobs is very much alive and hiding in Egypt.
That’s because, in 2019, a photo showing a man eerily similar to Jobs emerged. There’s no denying, the man does look identical, but then why Jobs would give up his tremendous life?
9 /10 Princess Diana
With the recent scandals surrounding the British Royal family, Princess Diana has been frequently mentioned in the press lately.
Back in 1997, there were some saying Lady Di was, in fact, pregnant and was killed by order of the queen herself.
Surprisingly, some believe she survived the car crash, quoting as proof a picture showing her in a wheelchair.
They insist she even attended the wedding of her son, William. How on earth would Queen Elizabeth allow such a thing nobody knows.
8 /10 Michael Jackson
It is probably the biggest star of his generation, so it should come as no surprise that Michael is still very much alive to some of his fans.
The theory is that the King of Pop faked his death as this was the only way to deal with the huge debts he had, not to mention that scandal about all those little boys he liked to surround himself with at his ranch.
There is no hard proof to support this theory, except a minor spelling mistake on his death certificate, which doesn’t prove anything.
7 /10 James Dean
His sudden death did indeed shock the whole world. The rebel generation suddenly lost its idol in a tragic car crash in 1955.
The loss was so great he was the first actor ever to receive an Oscar after his death. Only, did he die?
Some maintain he wanted out, and the studios granted him his wish, allowing him to die in an accident. Legend has it that Dean later moved to Canada to live a normal life.
