Famous celebrities who were killed by the Illuminati cult over the years (photos)

The Illuminati is a secret society whose activities remain hush hush.

Alot has been said about celebrities being part of this group, and is also alleged to be behind their deaths.

a secret society that is believed to be running the entertainment industry in the United States of America .

 

The people whose deaths were linked to the secret society are believed to have been spreading a different message which was contrary to that of the Illuminati and what they were striving to achieve in their “New World Order”

Celebs whose death Kenyans have yet to come to terms with

Here are some of the celebrities believed to have been killed by the Illuminati.

Michael Jackson

michael jackson

After his death, so many people tried to explain what happened and wrote articles as well but the question remains, is it truly homicide as stated by Los Angeles County Coroner On August 28, 2009, or something else must have happened.

Michael Jackson one day spoke out against one of America’s music executive who headed Sony Music Entertainment Tonny Mottola, who and I quote referred to him as “A Devil” and some people believe that the issues which were stirring between Michael Jackson and different people in the industry might have led to his demise.

Maybe just maybe he was trying to leave the Illuminati and the way he was exposing people and speaking out was just but the beginning but unfortunately he met his end, after writing different letters to his friends predicting about his death.

Princess Diana

princess diana

Being married into the royal family is a big deal to many, others its a dream come true, to others like the late Princess Diana would not change who they really are .

Diana used the chanceto raise awarenessand advocated ways to help people affected by HIV/AIDS, cancer, and mental illness..

Diana years after her marriage to prince Charles, believed that she was going to be killed and even predicted the manner in which she would be killed as indicated in the letter that she wrote to Paul Burrell.

After her body guard was murdered she believed that it was a conspiracy that would end up with her being the next in line to be killed. it was believed that there was a “Royal Rebel” a conflict among the members of the royal family since maybe she might have upset the order which was established.

Was she also upsetting the Illuminati was trying to achieve by helping out people.

Marilyn Monroe

marilyn monroe

She was known to be a rebel which might have gotten her in trouble. She spent time with those deemed undesirable and even after being warned a couple of times she didn’t care or rather listen to that.

As a result of her movie stardom and great beauty, Monroe came into contact and formed relationships with people of the highest order in the US including the Kennedy’s.

It said that Monroe committed suicide but it is believed that there is more to the story than what is being told. It was known that she was having an affair with Kennedy’s which might be a leading factor to her death. It is also said that a Chicago mafia might have planned her death to try to pass a message to Robert Kennedy telling him to back off against the mob.

 John Lennon

john lennon

The singer, songwriter, and arguably the most influential Beatles died in a mysterious way. The Beatles catapulted onto the American scene, eventually becoming the best-selling band in history.

The most radical of the group was undoubtedly John Lennon, and one only has to look as far as his song “Imagine,” which proposes a world without hunger and war, to realize the threat which he posed the establishment. His desire for change might be the very thing that might have contributed to his own death since he posed as a threat to certain establishments in the industry,that did not want the same for humanity.

Abraham Lincoln

abraham lincoln

 

The most well-documented conspiracy on our list was the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth. A fierce southerner loyal to the Confederacy, Booth murdered Lincoln as part of a larger plan to reinvigorate the defeated South. Not only was Lincoln meant to die, but his Vice President and Secretary of State were, as well. George Atzerodt was tasked with killing Vice President Andrew Johnson but lost his nerve, and was eventually hanged for his participation.

Another member of the conspiracy was Lewis Powell, who attempted (and failed) to kill the Secretary of State William Seward, injuring the secretary, his son, and his bodyguard before being disarmed. He, too, was executed for treason.

Martin Luther King jr

martin luther king jr

Dr.King was a great threat to some of the most powerful men in the wealthiest countries in the world.

He was in constant surveillance since powerful people were afraid of what he might do as he had already captured the attention  of the people.

He was once written to and told to commit suicide instead of his “sins” being exposed to the public.

Near the end of his life, Dr. King had begun to discuss and champion issues that transcended race; issues of class conflict and the importance of solidarity amongst workers. Dr. King would arrive in Memphis to lend support to the Memphis Sanitation Workers Strike, and not long after a man would take his life.

Which when it came to the enlightened of society became a big issue since he only spoke the truth even though they tried to make him seem like a liar.

Many people know the name of King’s convicted killer, James Earl Ray, but few realize that a separate wrongful death lawsuit was filed, and that a jury concluded that there was a conspiracy to murder Dr. King

John F. Kennedy

john f. kennedy

John F.Kennedy was the youngest ever elected president of he United States of America.

His reign of presidency ended before his term was over by him being assassinated.Abroad, Kennedy had to ease rising tensions with the Soviet Union, while at home the demands of equal rights by African-Americans was not going away.

These same ideas of freedom and equality were being espoused by the formerly colonized people of Vietnam and their leader Ho Chi Minh, who aligned himself with the Soviet Union.

President Kennedy had to make a decision: follow the advice of his generals and impede Vietnam’s ability to choose a socialist style government or choose a path of non-intervention.

With different organisations working under cover which are secret societies ,their definition of a “New World Order”was totally different to what an average human being or religious person may term it to be hence they might have planned for the assassination of Kennedy since for him ,he believed in something much more than what meets the eye,that war and conflicts never really solves issues.

Michael Jackson stole his hit song ‘Billie Jean’

Legendary musician Quincy Jones now claims Michael Jackson was a thief who stole the hit song ‘Billie Jean’.

In an interview on Vulture and GQ magazines, Quicny Jones has dropped bombshells about the most famous names from Michael Jackson, to Marlon Brando, Marvin Gaye, Ivanka Trump, Tevin Campbell and rapper TPain.

He has set the internet awash with all his crazy allegations, and the topic is trending.

The tell-all interview, Jones released information about Jackson that may give a glimpse to what Jones really thought about him.

I hate to get into this publicly, but Michael stole a lot of stuff. He stole a lot of songs. [Donna Summer’s] “State of Independence” and “Billie Jean.” The notes don’t lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come.

Jones also stated that Jackson could get stingy with writing credits. Per Jones, keyboardist Greg Phillinganes wrote the c section for Jackson’s hit “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.” Jackson is listed as the sole writer for the track. But Jackson was unwilling to share writing credits with Phillinganes.

Greedy, man. Greedy. “Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough” — Greg Phillinganes wrote the c section. Michael should’ve given him 10 percent of the song. Wouldn’t do it.

You worked with Michael Jackson more than anyone he wasn’t related to. What’s something people don’t understand about him?
I hate to get into this publicly, but Michael stole a lot of stuff. He stole a lot of songs. [Donna Summer’s] State of Independence and Billie Jean.The notes don’t lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come.

How so?
Greedy, man. Greedy. “Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough”Greg Phillinganes wrote the c section. Michael should’ve given him 10 percent of the song. Wouldn’t do it.

What about outside of music? What’s misunderstood about Michael?
I used to kill him about the plastic surgery, man. He’d always justify it and say it was because of some disease he had. Bullshit.

How much were his problems wrapped up with fame?
You mean with the way he looked? He had a problem with his looks becausehis father told him he was ugly and abused him. What do you expect?

It’s such a strange juxtaposition — how Michael’s music was so joyous, but his life just seems sadder and more odd as time goes by.
Yes, but at the end Michael’s problem was Propofol, and that problem affects everyone — doesn’t matter if you’re famous. Big Pharma making OxyContin and all that shit is a serious thing. I was around the White House for eight years with the Clintons, and I’d learn about how much influence Big Pharma has. It’s no joke. What’s your sign, man?

Paris Jackson’s godfather Macaulay Culkin opened up about their relationship

Earlier this week, Paris Jackson’s godfather, Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin, briefly spoke about the close relationship they share, complimenting her as someone who’s ‘tall, and beautiful and smart.’

Culkin, while appearing on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast Monday, kept relatively mum when Maron asked about her.

‘I’m going to warn you now, I am very protective of her so just look out,’ said the one-time child star, who was a close friend to Michael Jackson. ‘I am a very open book when it comes to things, but like with her, she is beloved by me.’

The veteran podcaster explained that he wasn’t fishing for ‘dirt’ about Paris, who’s frequently been seen on social media bonding with the 37-year-old actor, even getting matching tattoos at one point.

‘I’m just letting you know if we want to start going down that road it’s going to be a dead-end, you know, but I mean that in the fact that I love her so much,’ explained Macaulay.

He explained in the interview how he initially met the late King of Pop during his time as a ballet performer in a production of the The Nutcracker in New York City.

‘He came backstage before the show; he loved dance, he was a dance man,’ Culkin said. ‘He came backstage with Donald Trump, because they were friendly back then. I remember he looked at me like, “I know you from somewhere,”‘ which turned out to be the comedy film Uncle Buck.

Culkin said Jackson subsequently ‘reached out to me and my family’ after Home Alone was released, paving the way to ‘a legitimate friendship’ that lasted until the Thriller singer’s 2009 death.

‘Seriously, he was like my best friend for a good long stretch,’ Paris’s godfather said of her late dad.

Michael Jackson’s son Prince, 20, is now all grown up (Photos)

Never underestimate Prince Jackson.

The 20-year-old son of Michael Jackson was up and on his feet at LAX airport Sunday, less than a month after he was hospitalized following a motorcycle accident as he was headed to a college class.

Prince, who’s a business major at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, wore a black shirt with a white graphic on it, with a multi-colored scarf and loose grey Nike sweats with black trainers as he pushed a blue rolling suitcase forward.

The heir of the late Billie Jean artist, who had a backpack fastened on his back, sported a goatee and a closely-cropped hairdo with his brown bangs scruffy in the front, as he returned to his Southern California home after a getaway to Switzerland.

The college student got into an accident during heavy rain November 2 when heading to the educational institution near the Playa Vista neighborhood.

The 20-year-old tweeted a photo from the ambulance with the caption, ‘Well s***,’ as all that could be seen were his jeans and heavy black shoes. He suffered no serious injuries.

TMZ added more details about the accident, noting Prince was riding in the rain ‘when he lost control of his bike.’

It was added: ‘He was banged up enough that an ambulance was called and he was taken to a nearby ER,’ a source told the site. ‘He had no broken bones, so after doctors checked him out he was released.’

The source said that after Prince left the hospital he ‘went right to Loyola Marymount University and made it in time for class,’ with a rep for the star telling the site that Prince ‘is now resting at home and thanks everyone for their well wishes.’

Prince was seen October 27 at the Heal LA and TLK Fusion Present the 2nd Annual Costume for a Cause at Jackson Family Home. The star has often taken to social media to post videos taken while riding his motorcycle.

Prince, whose real name is Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., is pop star Michael’s eldest child. His mother is Debbie Rowe.

Bobby Brown says HE taught Michael Jackson how to do the iconic moonwalk dance

Bobby Brown isn’t back-stepping when it comes to the moonwalk.

The 48-year-old singer on Thursday doubled down on his claim that he taught Michael Jackson how to do the iconic dance of the 1980s, when asked by TMZ if he was responsible for originating the King of Pop’s trademark move.

Asked if he taught the late Thriller singer how to do the dance, Brown replied, ‘Of course,’ but made clear that he would be unable to teach anyone else the famed flash of footwork.

‘I cannot, because I forgot,’ the Every Little Step singer told the site as he made his way from Hollywood’s Dream Hotel, where he subsequently demurred when asked about recent reports he withdrew from being a contestant on the upcoming season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.

‘Don’t ask me questions,’ said the My Prerogative artist, who initially made the moonwalk revelation in an August 28 chat with The Cipher’s Shawn Setaro.

Brown said that he ‘was the first one’ to do the dance move in his Boston neighborhood of Orchard Park ‘to do the moonwalk.

‘The moonwalk was one of my signature moves,’ he said. ‘Nobody. I had brought it up from down South. It was something that just killed the game once I brought it up the East Coast.

The New Edition alum then revealed, ‘Actually, I was the one that taught Michael how to do it’ during a time when he and his former bandmates had been invited to Jackson’s home and began to dance in ‘this big room with mirrors.

‘We was all just dancin’ … we was poppin’, he was watchin’ us pop,’ Brown said. ‘He saw me do the moonwalk. And he was just like, “What is that?” And I did it again. He just watched it. And he just started doin’ it.’

Asked how he reacted after seeing Jackson first do it at a 1983 special called Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever, the Don’t Be Cruel vocalist called Jackson’s footwork ‘greatness at its finest,’ adding, ‘I thought it was great; he made it look better than I did.’

Brown’s account contrasts one Jackson’s sister La Toya made in 2004, when she said in an appearance on British TV that the pop icon actually picked up the move watching the show Soul Train from a dancer named Jeffrey Daniel, an alum of the group Shalamar.

‘I don’t know if you had this show called the Soul Train,’ she told interviewer Frank Skinner. ‘There was this dancer Jeffrey, who was always doing the Moonwalk on that show. He taught Michael how to do it.’

She said the dance move was initially called the backslide, and later adapted to the moonwalk after Jackson perfected it.

No Way! Donald Trump’s Wife Reveals That Michael Jackson Tried To Kiss Her!

Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, 46, has been making the promo rounds herself.

In her cover story with luxury magazine DuJour, the Slovene-American designer/model told a story about an interaction she had with Michael Jackson that may make some folks uncomfortable.

The former model recalled a time when the late King of Pop invited her and Trump to dinner, and things got a bit awkward.

“I met Michael Jackson. It was here in New York in the Pierre Hotel,” she said. “He called us, so we went over and we had dinner. Just after dinner, we were chatting on the sofa and my husband went into another room to see some art somebody wanted to show him.”

This is when things took a bit of a turn: “And Michael said to me, ‘Hey, when Trump comes back, let’s start kissing so he will be jealous!,” she said.

While she refused, she said they both thought the suggestion was pretty funny: “We were laughing so hard,” she said. This story definitely gets the side-eye.

Mrs Trump said she stands by her man. However, she admitted her brief split from Trump in 2000 when he was considering a run for the Reform Party.

“To be married to my husband, to someone successful as he is, he needs somebody who will tell him the truth. Somebody smart, you know. It’s not just like I’m there and I’m just doing things for him. People say I’m not on the campaign, [but] I’m very involved from home,” Mrs Trump said.

Paris’ family are apparently over the moon that she has agreed to a party this year, with her mum, Debbie Rowe, and grandmother, Katherine Jackson, keen to do whatever they can to make sure that she has a special day after so many years.

The teen, has big brother, Prince and a younger brother, Blanket. She has had a difficult few years, being taken to a psychiatric hospital back in 2013 following a drugs overdose, but she has thankfully managed to come out of it.

Looks like she will have a very exciting and thrilling birthday party as she turns 18.

Michael Jackson’s children set to make cameos in new reality TV series

TJ Jackson, who acts as a co-guardian to the late Michael Jackson’s children alongside their grandmother Katherine Jackson, says his new show ‘The Jacksons: Next Generation’ will give a rare peek into the lives of Prince, 18, Paris, 17, and Blanket, 13, even though they’ve recently returned to school.

The 3T singer, who will star in the show alongside his brothers and bandmates Taryll and TJ, said: “They’re all back in school and adjusting to Prince being in college.”

The 37-year-old star is very proud of the children and says they “remind” him of the ‘Thriller’ hitmaker, who tragically passed away in June 2009 at the age of just 50.

He explained: “Their hearts are so amazing. They remind me a lot of my uncle, and it shows what a good job he did with those kids. We grew up really close-knit. There is a certain pride that we have as a family.” According to TMZ, TJ Jackson doesn’t want Michael’s children to feel trapped by this new series.

Meanwhile, Taj, 42, has revealed the show will also dispel some rumours about their famous family. He told PEOPLE.com: “I turn on the TV and hear jokes about my family, and 99 per cent of it is lies. It was important to show the truth.”

Taryll, 40, added: “Our family and our uncles impacted a lot of people, and that’s something we want to do.”

Michael Jackson’s Father Admitted To ICU After Suffering A Stroke

Joe Jackson – the father of the late Michael Jackson and the patriarch of the musical family – suffered a stroke while visiting the South American nation, a Brazilian hospital said.

An emailed statement early on Monday from the Albert Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo says only that Mr Jackson was admitted to the hospital Sunday afternoon. He is in the intensive care unit. The statement also said he was suffering from an irregular heartbeat.

The statement did not say exactly what condition Mr Jackson is in. Mr Jackson was in Brazil in part to celebrate his 87th birthday – which was on Sunday.

Local media say Mr Jackson was absent from his own party because he was already in the hospital. Photos from his official website show him dining in Sao Paulo restaurants.
