During a recent interview, Avril Lavigne was asked to comment on the crazy conspiracy theory that she died 15 years ago and has been replaced by clones.
“Did you laugh at the rumors that went around where you no longer exist and there’s a clone of you?” the interviewer asked.
Avril replied: “Yeah, some people think that I’m not the real me, which is so weird! Like, why would they even think that?”
Back in 2017 the rumor resurfaced when a Twitter user claimed to find “evidence” that Avril had committed suicide back in 2003 after the death of her grandfather. Since this was during the height of her “Sk8er Boi” days, her record company supposedly hired a body double named Melissa Vandella to replace her.
The theory has been going on for years as people pulled together evidence of Avril’s changes in handwriting, style evolution, and appearance to prove Melissa’s existence.
Arvil retreated from the spotlight in recent years as she battled Lyme disease, which she was diagnosed with in 2014. Lavigne gave an update on her health in September 2017. “To my fans, I just want to thank everyone for their patience as I work on putting together this new album,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “It’s been a long recovery and I want to make sure that this is perfect for you guys!!”
Lavigne recently performed her comeback single “Head Above Water” for the Honda Stage series.
