Is it possible that one of the most influential women in the music industry has a twin sister? Could this be Beyoncé’s biggest secret, and how could she have kept this a secret for so long? Who could be Beyoncé ‘s mysterious twin?
No, Beyoncé is not a twin. Pictures of a woman who looked identical to Beyoncé surfaced online in 2017. The rumored twin is Brittany Williams from Detroit. The resemblance between the two women is uncanny, and many are convinced that they are identical twins. However, there is some evidence pointing against that conclusion.
Although the two women seem to be identical and share many personality traits and interests, evidence points to them not being related. Let’s look further into the topic and the evidence which suggests against them being secret sisters.
Thanks to the internet, people have instant access to all the information they want, especially when it comes to celebrities. When you do a Google search on a star, the search-engine itself provides some insight into the celebrity’s life. The same is true for the siblings of celebrities. When you search for “Beyoncé ‘s siblings,” Google provides a small tile at the top of the screen with her siblings’ names and how they are related to her. As Google is such a large and prominent company, it cannot risk its reputation by having false information. Therefore, they verify the relatives of celebrities with thorough research before making the information available to the public.
For Beyoncé ‘s siblings, Google displays her blood-related sisters, Solange Knowles and Koi Knowles, as well as her brother, Nixon Alexander Knowles, and her step-sister, Bianca Lawson. However, a name that does not feature in this tab is Brittany Williams. When the rumor surfaced three years ago, Google would have done adequate research to confirm their relation to one another and updated the tab accordingly. After three years, Williams is still not listed as one of Beyoncé ‘s siblings, which suggests that the rumor is indeed false.
Williams Denies Being Related to Beyoncé
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Williams spoke about the struggles of looking so similar to a celebrity, describing how Beyoncé fans would chase after her. Although she has been told that she looks like the singer from high school, she denies being related to her and says that she only considers herself a fan. Since Williams hit the spotlight in 2013, she has gone from 20 000 followers on Instagram to 87 400.
This sudden rise to fame can cause people to make claims or pull stunts to gain even more followers and popularity. Williams’ similar appearance to Beyoncé would be enough to convince many skeptics of her relation to the singer, but, despite her huge following, she has never claimed to be her sister.
Could the spotlight be stopping her from sharing her true story and looking into it? It is true that with the internet, many people are -quick to judge and discard stories, especially when it comes to beloved celebrities such as Beyoncé . Although this could potentially stop her from confessing that she is indeed related to Beyoncé , there is a flip-side to the argument. As previously stated, despite her massive following of 87 400, Williams has not claimed to be related to the singer, but she does relish in the fame that comes with being her look-alike. She is already famous without being confirmed as one of Beyoncé ‘s siblings, and if it were true, her following could grow but probably nowhere near as substantially as it has in the past few years.
Where Does This Leave Us?
Although Brittany Williams does appear to be almost identical to Beyoncé , all other evidence suggests that they are not related. Williams may have global fame but unfortunately, not a super-star sister. However, it’s cute to know that she is a fan of Beyoncé . We can only imagine what it would feel like if they both linked up.
