Avril Lavigne Reveals She's Starting Work On New Album

This Conspiracy Theory That Avril Lavigne Died & Was Replaced By a Lookalike Is Oddly Convincing

This Conspiracy Theory That Avril Lavigne Died & Was Replaced By a Lookalike Is Oddly Convincing

However, while working on her second album, it's claimed that Avril fell into a depression and was later found dead at her home. The theory states that her alleged "death" occurred at the height of her career, and that Ms Lavigne's record company hired a girl-known as Melissa Vandella - who looks like her to represent her. Vandella had been trained in advance to pose as her real Canadian pop singer, according to theory.

However, the theory has some intense adherents, as showcased by the "Avril Is Dead" blog, which outlines differences between Avril and Melissa, namely the radical transformation she suddenly underwent in the mid-2000s.

Now, the theory has re-surfaced on the 15th anniversary of her debut single Complicated, after a fan named @Givincyass went over the original rumours in a new Twitter thread.

She is now working on a new album.

Hilariously, the reason the long-in-the-tooth hoax appears to have resurfaced has to do with a 2011 blog post from Brazil, which was intended as a cautionary tale on how to make a fake conspiracy theory appear to be true, but wound up spreading throughout the Internet like wildfire.

As the rumours flooded the internet once again this weekend, one fan echoed many by announcing: "This is a case for the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

However a third lashed out at the weird notion, adding: "Not hating on anyone but honestly everyone has to get over "Avril died and this is Melissa" like wtf".

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.

Because time is a flat circle, the internet is trying to kill Avril Lavigne. Let us know on social media.

Even when the singer tweeted her mum to wish her "Happy mother's day", yesterday the responses from fans included: "Happy Mother's Day, Melissa" and "Melissa, it's OK".

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".

What's more, aaccording to the theorists, Avril taught Melissa how to sing like her. But of course Avril is very much alive.

"Conspiracy theories are part of this", she said.
