5 Fake Celebrity Scandals That Everyone Thought Were Real
So many celebrity scandals are real, but there are a few out there that we all came to believe were true, but which were actually fake. Sometimes fans create these stories; however, other times, celebrities are the ones who do the fabricating. Here are 5 fake celebrity scandals that we all thought were real:
5. Marisa Tomei Didn’t Really Win the Oscar
Ever since Marisa Tomei won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1993 for her performance in My Cousin Vinny, there has been a rumor floating around that she wasn’t supposed to win and that the presenter called her name out by mistake. One of the reasons that this rumor ever gained steam was because Tomei was up against four more established actresses and critics weren’t taking her nomination seriously. As we all know now from the 2017 Academy Award debacle where the wrong Best Picture winner was announced, if Tomei hadn’t won, two members of Price-Waterhouse would have been waiting in the wings to correct the mistake.
4. Beyonce Faked Her Pregnancy
When Beyonce was pregnant with Blue Ivy, there were rumors that she wasn’t actually pregnant and was instead wearing a prosthetic belly. The rumor was first sparked when Beyonce appeared on Sunday Night and her baby bump appeared to fold when she sat down. Publications including People, Us Weekly, ABC News and Washington Post began running stories on Beyonce’s bump conspiracies. The joke was on them though! Beyonce gave birth to Blue Ivy on January 7, 2012, proving that she really was pregnant.
