  • Do You Believe This Conspiracy Theory That Avril Lavigne Died & Was Replaced By a Lookalike Years Ago

She started a long-winding, elaborate thread of tweets explaining that the real Avril Lavigne died in 2003 and was replaced by a lookalike named Melissa Vendella - the "Avril" that the public knows today.

Shortly after beginning work on her second album, the page claims that Avril fell into depression and was later found dead at her home by her record company.

It must be 2007, because everyone's talking about Avril Lavigne again.

The Avril Lavigne death conspiracy is the talk of the Internet again. After all, she hasn't gotten this much publicity since "Girlfriend" was released. It was even pointed out that Lavigne had a photo with "Melissa" written on her hands.

In the thread, Internet users claim that the singer put an end to her life at the end of 2003, after her grandfather's death.

"I'm really happy to announce that I am now working on new music and I will be releasing a new album in 2017", she wrote in an Instagram post.

A blogger said: "Launched in 2004, it is completely different to the first CD!"

She is now working on a new album. Back in 2012, it was reported that Avril Lavigne died in a snowboarding accident while vacationing at Whistler Blackcomb ski resort with family and friends, when at one point she "lost control of her snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed".

And it's not just physical features that users believe have changed - others are were suspicious when Avril promoted a slimming bar as a "yummy and healthy snack". With every tweet the singer makes now, netizens reply with jokes like "We know it's you, Melissa" or "It's ok Melissa, we're here for you". "The jig is up Melissa" which garnered more than 15,000 retweets.

In an era where traditional sources of news and information are being questioned, Dr Rosewarne said people are more accepting of alternative sources of "information".

Avril herself has yet to comment on the conspiracy theory.

Now of course the fan site have back tracked on their claims, writing that the blog "was a way of showing how conspiracy theories may seem true".

"Conspiracy stories - particularly ones involving celebrities - are entertaining and often ridiculous enough that they get circulated because they are amusing".
