Ever since Avril Lavigne’s split with Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger in 2015, it is pretty rare that a story floats around with her name involved. But its existence isn’t the only thing surprising about the news forming around the Canadian popstar.
For the past decade, fans have been speculating that the original Avril Lavigne may have died in 2003, and a new lookalike named Melissa Vandella took her place. Sounds crazy, I know, but the evidence is pretty alarming.
Avril Lavigne came into fame at a very young age, performing on stage with A-list celebrities since her early teenage years. Fans have found evidence of the possibility that, having a hard time dealing with the constant press, she hired her friend Melissa (who looks stunningly similar) to handle some of the tensions of the paparazzi.
As a result of these ongoing tensions and her grandfather’s death, fans speculate that Lavigne may have offed herself in 2003. The record company, then, continued to put out music with Melissa instead.
Fans claim that the Avril’s facial features, vocal tone, and her autograph all underwent a dramatic shift after ’03. For example, Avril Lavigne was known for her punk and grunge niche in the pop industry. All recent red-carpet footage has been her in high-end dresses and skirts.
Still with me? If this is true, Melissa may have been hiding clues in Avril’s work in every publication since Avril’s death in forms of booklets, lyrics, and merchandise.
The album directly following the incident was entitled Under My Skin (which is highly suggestive). And has songs with frighteningly alluding imagery such as:
“When I turn the lights out / When I close my eyes / Reality overcomes me / I’m living a lie.”
“The day you slipped away was the day I found it won’t be the same.”
The conspiracy returned in 2016 when “Avril Lavigne” released this publicity shot:
