Of course, it’s not about anything mystical. The dead are really dead—no theories about vampires and zombies. The fact is that the deaths of some famous personalities raise a lot of questions. People have every reason to believe that those didn’t die at all but merely faked their own deaths.
Some researchers have even attempted to prove that all these conspiracy theories are by no means unfounded. In this article, we review the top ten most famous dead people who conspiracy theorists believe are, in fact, still alive.
10 dead celebrities that still alive according to conspiracy theories
1. Michael Jackson
The King of Pop passed away in 2009 from cardiac arrest. The investigation into the famous singer’s death was as public as possible. Despite this, quite a few people believe that Michael Jackson is still alive. Even relatives and friends of the pop king, although confident in his death, believe that there is too much mystery in it. Those who believe that Jackson is not dead claim that he purposely faked his death for a variety of reasons.
King, above all, wanted to live the normal life of an ordinary man. He sought to get rid of persecution and new accusations of child molestation. Some say Jackson needed to pay off his debts and increase his album sales. Some go further and claim it was murder.
People often cite pictures of people who look like Michael Jackson to prove this theory. The singer’s stylist added fuel to the fire by making some cryptically ambiguous postings. Some fans think that Michael looks suspiciously like one of his friends. Relatives insist that the pop music icon was murdered. Regardless of what anyone thinks about it, Michael Jackson was an absolutely extraordinary, fantastic artist who changed the music world forever.
2. Princess Diana
Princess Diana died in a car accident in 1997. There are many people who believe sacredly that the people’s princess is alive. There have been so many versions of what happened to her that it is very difficult to sort out where the truth and outright lies lie.
There was even an investigation into Diana’s death. The best investigators have tried to figure out what really happened for years. After all, Diana herself had repeatedly made statements before her death, testifying to how tired she was of the public circus into which her life had become. Therefore, many people willingly believe that the princess is currently living peacefully with her Egyptian husband on a certain small island.
Most of the evidence presented in this matter is at the level of trivial hearsay. They are based on the fact that Diana spoke shortly before her death that Prince Charles was plotting something bad. Perhaps she had a premonition of something and took care of herself?
3. John F. Kennedy, Jr.
This theory has been gaining popularity lately and is being hyped in many media outlets. Many are even calling for former President Donald Trump to run again with Kennedy Jr. as vice president. Thus, it is quite obvious that too many people do not believe that John F. Kennedy Jr. actually died in a plane crash in 1999.
There are a great many versions of what happened, but there is no evidence that the politician actually survived that plane crash. Some think it was a contract killing, some think it was staged, and some think Kennedy is alive and well. Whatever the truth, it is strange that none of the stories about him mentions his wife and daughter-in-law, who were on board with him.
4. Elvis Presley
Elvis’ name on this list comes as no surprise. A huge number of people still believe that the King of rock and roll is alive. There are so many theories surrounding this idea that one of them was even featured in the movie Men in Black. Presley died in 1977 of a heart attack. Some believe he was murdered. Others think he faked his own death to lead a normal quiet life. Others are certain that Elvis is an alien from another planet and simply returned home.
Again, no one knows anything concrete. Everything is at the level of rumor. Elvis is “met” here and there from time to time. One thing is clear: the King is alive in the hearts of fans around the world and in his music. The music industry has taken a dizzying turn thanks to him.
5. Tupac Shakur
Tupac Shakur was murdered in 1996. He was in his car and suddenly he was shot at by a passing car. Opinions about what actually happened were again very much divided. Some thought it was a political stunt, others thought it was personal. Both versions agree that the rapper is living under a new name somewhere in Malaysia. It begs the question: why would one of the most influential rappers of all time fake his own death? Fans believe that Tupac left clues about his “death” in his lyrics and music videos.
6. Paul Walker
Paul Walker died in a car accident in 2013. It became an event against the backdrop of his shooting in the Fast and Furious franchise. Nevertheless, many believed that the actor’s death was merely staged. One conspiracy theory says that Paul was involved in a government project involving research on a certain type of fuel. It is said that his death was part of the plan.
In favor of this theory is the fact that the star did not have a public funeral. The results of the “autopsy” were classified. Many people point out that the color of Paul’s car in the photos before and after the accident is different. Perhaps there is something to this…
7. Steve Jobs
The founder of Apple died in 2011. Quite a number of people refuse to believe that such a giant of thought could die. Some believe that he faked his death because of conflicting views on the development of his company.
There are those who claim that he decided to “retire” and live peacefully in Egypt. Jobs was always interested in the culture of that country. There are rumors that he even has a tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Once, they even published a picture of a certain man, very similar to Steve, drinking coffee in an Egyptian cafe.
8. Jeffrey Epstein
A lot of people believe that Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself. The vast majority are piously convinced that either the Clintons or other powerful politicians killed him. But there are those who claim that Jeffrey is alive, well, and quite well. He lives on his own island and spits in the face of all his accusers from there.
There are quite a few pictures of “Epstein” walking that went viral after his death. One thing they all have in common is that they are not convincing at all. Some believe Jeffrey is now living on a ranch in New Mexico. Again, there is no conclusive evidence.
9. Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe is a mega-popular actress whose name is still on everyone’s lips. She is one of the most famous sex symbols in modern history. In this light, it is not surprising that so many people simply refuse to believe in her death.
Some conspiracy theorists believe that the star was murdered. Her relationship with prominent politicians of the time – John Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy – ruined her. Others claim she faked her own death and is now living under a different name. All because she knew too much. Considering how many state secrets she appears to have known, it is highly unlikely that Marilyn is alive. Some believe Monroe is in a psychiatric hospital in Canada.
10. Osama bin Laden
Usually, when the SEAL Team says someone has been caught, it means everything. As for Osama bin Laden, it’s not so simple. Why was he buried at sea? Why wasn’t any proof of his death provided? Some think that cloned of the terrorist was actually killed. Others are sure it was all staged to serve the president.
There is no proof that Bin Laden is alive, either. Only a few dubious publications where he is allegedly present. There are those that claim that Osama was equipped to fight Russia and was always an informant for the United States. After all the events, America supposedly “retired him.” Some would agree that wherever this terrorist is at the moment – let him stay there.
