Jessica Lowndes‘ early April Fools’ joke on March 28 has to go down as one of the most elaborate ruses in Hollywood history. Not only did the 27-year-old former 90210 hottie tease on her social media that she that she was engaged to former Saturday Night Live star Jon Lovitz, 58, she also posted video of her naked in his bed. Just as everyone was speculating this had to be the oddest celebrity coupling ever, she dropped a remix of her music video for “Deja Vu” where she got all kinds of hot and sexy with the aging comedian. She then followed it up by letting us all know the whole fauxmance had been a joke and wished everyone an early April Fools.
Who can forget RiRi, making a secret 1:00 a.m.visit to talk show host Jimmy Kimmel’s house to wake him up and prank him with a private concert? She brought her own mini light kit, made it rain money over his barely awake body, and jumped up and down on his bed!
Openly gay singer Sam Smith, 23, pranked his Twitter followers in 2015 by announcing “Guys…I have some news. I’m straight.” He sat there and let the news freak out his fans for over an hour before jumping back online and wishing everyone a Happy April Fools’ Day.

James Franco, 37, gave heart attacks to Jelena fans in 2015 when he put up an Instagram picture of Selena holding a newborn baby and telling his fans, “Selena and I had a baby, it was born during Sprang Break” as a shoutout to the Spring Breakers movie the pair did together back in 2013. While it was so obviously not true as we know Selly was never pregnant, fans of Justin Bieber, 22, and Selena freaked out anyway.
Speaking of Beliebers, they were the victims of the most heartbreaking April Fools’ prank in 2015 they woke up to the trending Twitter topic #JustinYourAlbumLeaked, complete with fake album cover and track list! Since he hadn’t put out any new music sine 2012, his fans lost their collective minds that Justin had finally dropped some new tunes, only to be disappointed when it turned out to all be a joke.
