It seems like every time we turn around, there's another celeb making headlines for being part of the Illuminati. If you're famous, it's pretty much a given that at least one headline about you being in cahoots with the group will pop up at one point or another. These days, celebrities can't so much as wear a T-shirt with an eyeball on it without being accused of Illuminati affiliation.

The Illuminati rumors and theories seem totally wacky and out there — but do they actually hold some water?

Well, maybe. Once you've fallen down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole, the evidence mounts quickly and some of it actually makes sense. There's no denying that some celebs definitely do have a habit of throwing up certain signs associated with the underground cult and even seem to give a shout-out with what they wear. Is it possible that maybe — just maybe — there really is some kind of secret society that ensures the most successful celebrities stay hot? It's a scary thing to think about, especially since many believe the Illuminati have demonic ties and special control over the rest of society. But then again, it could also all be a bunch of BS.

To do some deeper research, you can visit the official Illuminati website. In the meantime, check out this long list of celebs who are believed to be in with the Illuminati operation.
