40 Best Celebrity Rumors Ever


I love rumors that have no basis in reality. And while I worship at the godless cult of celebrity alongside the rest of the known world, I also enjoy spreading slanderous myth about them as often as possible. It's really all about context. With the right amount of random details, any rumor can be believable. In fact, I think I'll start a one right now.

I bumped into someone this past weekend who knows this Native American guy who went to school with someone who did coke with this girl at a party who was a big-time Hollywood hairdresser on the set of MI3. She told them that Tom Cruise has a gay sex android he paid 1 million dollars for he bought from a secret Tokyo AI boutique for the uber-rich.

You see, it's easy.

Here's a list of the best rumors about celebrities from over the years. My favorite is #4. I totally believed it, and I think part of me still does.

Mikey died from eating Pop Rocks and soda


"Remember Mikey, the little advertising mascot kid who liked Life cereal? "Mikey likes it," and all that? Presumably, Mikey, though he liked Life cereal, was not as much a fan of exploding. Luckily, contrary to popular opinion, John "Mikey" Gilchrist did not explode after eating Pop Rocks and chugging a Coke, and the combo of Pop Rocks and soda isn't deadly - although it may cause you to lose your lunch. The rumor will probably never go away, but Mikey is alive and well, as you can read in this transcript of a 2000 CNN piece including the ex-cereal enthusiast. - JW"
