15+ Lies Celebrities Miserably Failed To Get Away With
Celebrities are just like us. They have ups and downs, issues, and sometimes they even lie. Of course, sometimes they have felt obliged to tell something that didn’t happen, but you won’t believe the type of things they have said to hide the truth about a certain topic. Let’s take a look of the most curious lies famous people have told, which were their motivations and how they were discovered.
Usually, rappers feel the need of being tough guys, and that’s what they talk about in their songs. Maybe, for that same reason, the rapper Tyga always has said that he grew up in Compton, but recently a video where the rapper says otherwise came up. In the said recording, the rapper confesses a wealthy upbringing in the Valley. Later, he tried to fix things up saying that he did live there, but only for a short period.
No one can deny the talent of Queen Bey, but she tried to confuse her public with some facts. Do you remember the song “Irreplaceable”? It is one of her biggest hits, but she didn’t write that song. The lie is that she tried to convince her fans for a long time, saying she was the author of the song. In fact, Ne-Yo is the creator of this masterpiece, and he gave it to Beyoncé because he thought it was better for a female singer.
3. Lance Armstrong
This lie shocked the cycling community and a lot of people all around the globe. The thing is that he denied in several occasions doping accusations until some of his former riding partners were caught. He went from being one of the most recognized athletes of the world to being banned for life from participating in sanctioned cycling events. Of course, this disappointed many people who admired him.
4. Mila Kunis
This is probably one of the few lies of the list that has a happy ending. When the actress auditioned for a role in the sitcom “That ‘70s show”, she lied to get the part. She told the producers she was 18 years old, but the reality was that she was only 14 years old at that moment. However, when the producers found out the truth, they decided to keep her in the show.
5. James Frey
The writer and blogger James Frey wrote a memoir chronicling titled A Million Little Pieces. There, he opened up about his struggle against drug addiction and detailed many facts about it. It topped the New York Times best-seller list, and even Oprah recommended it in her book club. The lie? Most of the striking facts were all made up, and a big percent of the book was completely false.
It is incredible how far someone can go with a lie, just to pursue a personal objective. In 2002 Brandy surprised everyone when announced her she said she had secretly married producer Robert Smith. Then, they even started a reality show were their life as a couple was shown. When they split, she confessed they'd faked the marriage to preserve her image.
7. Meg and Jack White
This iconic rock music duo alleged on several occasions that they were brother and sister. That was until a marriage certificate was found, then they had to confess that they were husband and wife. No one really knows why they did this; so it will remain as one of the many mysteries from the entertainment business.
8. Britney Spears
This is a funny one. Months ago, the famous singer Britney Spears stirred up the internet after she posted a picture of grilled corn with the caption "It's honestly too good to be true." So, what’s the scandal? Well, she got that picture from Google Images and posted it as if it was hers.
9. Bow Wow
You won’t believe this. The rapper Bow Wow was bragging in Instagram about flying on a private jet, but his lie didn’t last long. Someone spotted him on a commercial plane and made a tweet about it. Then, everyone discovered that of course, he wasn’t using a private jet and that the picture was a stock photo.
10. Khloé Kardashian
Time ago, the younger Kardashian posted a picture on her Instagram account of some pies that she had made. Curiously, the cakes looked precisely the same as the pies made by a bakery in L.A called Sweet Lady Jane. This lie is a bit ridiculous, and we can’t understand what motivated her to do it.
11. Nicki Minaj
The rapper had been lying about her age since a long time ago until she was logged in a police report. Then, her actual birthday was revealed, and everyone found out that she was two years older than she stated. Nicki always said she was born in 1984, but the reality was that she was born in 1982.
12. Kylie Jenner
She is recognized for having astonishing lips, which she claimed were all natural. When people asked her why her lips looked bigger then, she said it was due to her makeup tricks. However, in one episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kylie revealed that she had temporary lip fillers.
13. Rick Ross
He is popular for hits like "Hustlin'" and "Stay Schemin’", but what many didn’t know is that he worked as a correctional officer before being famous. Is not a bit contradictory? One of his photographers made that revelation, but Rick Ross insisted it was a lie and that the pictures were photoshopped. Later, he admitted the truth.
14. Lindsay Lohan
This actress made up an extravagant lie just to call attention. While doing her community service, Lindsay Lohan alleged that she was tasked with handling Whitney Houston's body bag. This issue was immediately cleared up by the Coroner's Office, which said that the singer’s corpse was never even in a body bag.
15. P. Diddy
It seems that rappers love bragging about things they don’t have. In this case, P. Diddy once claimed that he owned a private jet that cost him almost to $200,000 in fuel. But his lie didn’t last long when no plane registered under his name could be found. Then, he admitted he made that up. At least he dared to be honest.
16. Miley Cyrus
Everyone knows that 2013 was a wild year for the singer. Among all the disasters Miley made at that time, she alleged that she had secretly married her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth. We don’t know her reasons to have said that, but a short time after, it was discovered that was a lie.
As you can see, not even celebrities are satisfied with all the things they have, and sometimes feel the necessity of telling some lies. It is curious because we think they don’t need to do that kind of things, but they have their reasons. However, it is not a justification.
