Just like Taylor Swift, Eminem, Britney Spears and many other celebrities, Miley Cyrus is no stranger to death hoaxes or conspiracy theories. The 24-year-old “Wrecking Ball” songstress has allegedly met her demise a number of times, and was most likely replaced by a body double at some point.
One of the more recent death hoaxes about Cyrus involved an overdose in her bathtub. According to Snopes, a fake news story surfaced on the internet, leading to the spread of the rumor. The report came from Now8News, stating the following:
“Miley Cyrus’ lifeless body was found by her entourage in a bathtub at her Hollywood home on Wednesday, authorities revealed. Los Angeles investigators are trying to determine the cause of death. Officials refused to comment on reports that the famed actress/singer drowned from a prescription pill overdose. They have, however, made it clear that there were no signs of foul play.”
It was soon revealed that “Now8News” was a fake news website. And as you know, Cyrus is not dead.
But is today’s Cyrus the real real Disney star we knew growing up, or is she a clone? This is one of the biggest conspiracy theories about Cyrus.
According to this conspiracy (from a fake news website), the real Cyrus was replaced by a body double that developed into the twerking performance artist we know today. This theory also alleges she was assassinated in order for the new Cyrus to take over. Plus, the fact that she revealed she used a body double for her Hanna Montana tour in 2008 does have many convinced of the conspiracy.
Here is some fan-footage of the body double in action:
