Beyonce is Not Solange's Mom and Other Celebrity Conspiracy Theories

We'll debunk these, along with other weird celebrity conspiracy theories out there.

Solange is actually Beyonce’s daughter
According to Wikipedia, Beyonce was born in 1981 and Solange in 1986. That means Beyonce would have given birth at age five. Right. Some back this claim by saying that Bey was actually born in 1974, making her 37 and a more plausible 14-year-old when she had Solange (and because Beyoncé is close to her nephew, that means he's actually her grandson). However, video footage of Beyonce performing as a youngster indicates that she was born in 1981 and home videos of the family in her documentary “Life is but a Dream,” show Solange and Beyonce as children together. So there.

Michael Jackson and LaToya are the same person

Though Michael Jackson and his sister LaToya obviously shared DNA and a penchant for plastic surgery, they were not the same person. There’s plenty of photographic evidence of them together in the same place.

Elvis Lives
Perhaps one of the most popular and longest-standing conspiracy theories is that Elvis faked his death and is still living high on the hog somewhere in the United States. Though his death certificate and burial at Graceland would seem to indicate that the King is sadly no longer with us, his fans’ dedication to keeping this story alive is kind of touching.

Prince Harry is not the son of Prince Charles
While her marriage to Prince Charles was crumbling, Princess Diana admitted that she had an affair with a man named James Hewitt, a redheaded cavalry officer. When Harry was younger, the two did look alike, but now that time has passed, it’s easy to see the family resemblance between Prince Charles and Prince Harry—apparently they even have the same Windsor “sausage fingers.”

Walt Disney was cryogenically frozen
Walt Disney’s head is totally cryogenically frozen and kept in a vault somewhere beneath the Pirates of the Caribean ride at Disneyland. Yet his family’s insistence that he was cremated and interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California means nothing. In 1972, Disney's daughter Diane wrote: “There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that my father, Walt Disney, wished to be frozen. I doubt that my father had ever heard of cryonics.”

Jamie Lee Curtis is a hermaphrodite
These rumors apparently stem from one article published in "The Washington Post" by a Professor Beeman in the late 90s that used Curtis as an example of someone who is “genetically male but phenotypically female.” Beeman made this claim despite having no evidence to back it up. Curtis has never spoken publicly about this, but on her behalf, we’re offended.
