Famous (Alleged) Illuminati Members

Updated December 21, 2020 18.9m views74 items

This is a list of all famous Illuminati members, past and present. . . allegedly. Everyone mentioned on this list is rumored to have talked about the Illuminati, used their symbology or practiced Illuminati rituals in some way– whether privately or in the public eye. These possible famous Illuminati members range from world leaders to pop culture celebrities.

The Illuminati was founded in 1776 in Bavaria by Adam Weishaupt. It was initially created to house the great thinkers of the area and was modeled after another secret society, the Freemasons. A few years later the government outlawed all secret societies so the Illuminati was thought to be disbanded, though they have been the focus of numerous conspiracy theories throughout the years. Some theories are that the Illuminati members run the world behind the scenes as a New World Order, some say that the Illuminati is run by shape-shifting lizard/human hybrids. In any case the debate of who is a member of the Illuminati has captured our fascination for years.

Who are famous Illuminati members? This list is a culmination of names of suspected celebrity Illuminati members from various internet sources and should not be considered definitive.

Alleged Illuminati celebs include singers, rappers, and high profile Hollywood actors. Even powerful businessmen and women are alleged to have Illuminati ties along with other world leaders, and business people in leadership positions (even entire companies are alleged to have Illuminati ties). Angelina Jolie and Jay Z are just a few examples of alleged Illuminati members.  Rihanna is another of the rumored prominent members of Illuminati.
