    Every couple of years, tabloids go amuck with rumors that this power couple is headed for splitsville. But the duo, who have been married for more than 15 years, aren't headed there anytime soon, Pinkett Smith says. "That's my boo. It's like he's another part of me," she told Essence last year.

    Time and time again, newsstand headlines have declared the Friends star pregnant, but they've never held true. Jen has been in the pregnancy spotlight for a while — some even speculated she and ex-husband Brad Pitt split because the actress didn't want a brood of her own. However, Aniston's now with fiance Justin Theroux, so maybe there's a bump in the future for our favorite girl next door.

    Rumor says the beloved Mr. Rogers served as a Vietnam War sharpshooter, making over 150 kills before trading in his camo for cardigans. In reality, Fred was every bit as gentle-spirited as his TV persona and never served a day in the armed forces.
  • Bill Gates, prince of darkness 6 of 13
    Bill Gates, prince of darkness
    Someone figured out that if you convert Bill Gates III (his full name) to ASCII code and add up all the numbers, it equals 666. Microsoft glitches and meltdowns can feel like a little bit of hell on earth, but we find it hard to believe that the Prince of Doom would donate his $58 billion fortune to charity.

    Urban legend goes that Walt Disney had himself frozen and stored in a deep-freezer chamber underneath the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, where he's biding his time until he can be brought back to life.

    Perpetually pregnant Beyonc
    Who runs the world? Beyoncé. But the singer can't catch a break when it comes to pregnancy rumors. Throughout her career, she's had to deny being with child. When she finally got pregnant, out came gossip about prosthetic bumps and a secret surrogate. Blue Ivy Carter, an undeniable blend of her two famous parents, was born January 7, 2012. Beyoncé's motherly glow — and ample nursing-mama bosom — look like the real deal.

    What started as a satirical review of The Beatles' "Abbey Road" album by a University of Michigan student in 1969 soon became national news as newspapers and magazines picked up on "clues" that Paul McCartney had been killed in a car crash and replaced by a look-a-like.

    Bill Cosby dies on Twitteragain
    In 2010, Cosby "died" twice on Twitter. Though we were a little disappointed he didn't debunk the rumor by tweeting back "J-E-L-L-O, I'm alive!" it's understandable that he had trouble finding humor in the situation, since the rumors may have given his family a scare.
