There has been many speculations about the evolution of the singer following her grandfather's death in 2003.

Avril was very close to her grandfather and she was understandably distraught by losing him. However, conspiracy theorists believe her sadness led her to commit suicide. This is where her doppelgänger Melissa comes in.

At the time of her rumoured suicide, Avril was a true superstar all around the world having put out very successful singles like "Sk8r Boi" and "Complicated" the year before.

However, she cannot handle the fame and came the harsh spotlight, which reportedly led her and her team to search for a lookalike who could pose as Avril in front of the media. They apparently found this in a girl named Melissa Vandella.

Rumour has it when Avril "died", Melissa took her place in order to carry on the success Avril had achieved.

The theory peaked in Brazil, but over the years the conspiracy has grown so much in popularity.

Last year, Twitter took the speculation up a notch when a user outlined the evidence that proves Melissa isn't the original Avril Lavigne.

Most people think that things like her change in style, handwriting and lyrics clearly indicate that Avril died. Some even believe that Melissa tries to reveal her true identity in the album Under My Skin.

All these years, the artist has never denied or addressed the rumors. Until now.

On Wednesday, Avril had an interview with Australia's KISS 1065, where they asked, "Did you laugh at the rumors that went around where you no longer exist and there's a clone of you?"

Avril replied, "Yeah, some people think that I'm not the real me, which is so weird! Like, why would they even think that?"

Well done, Melissa. 👏👏
