In this gallery, we bring you some of the biggest lies ever told by celebrities. Click through to find out what exactly they were.

Britney Spears

The former couple were in a sexless relationship. Or so Spears claimed. “The virginity issue. It’s a personal decision and it reflects how I feel right now about myself. There are so many emotions involved that I would like to be able to wait until I know I’m with the right person and I’m married.”

Jack and Meg were in fact married. According to Jack White, the reason why they lied was because they believed people would be more interested in the music and less in the relationship if they thought the duo were brother and sister and not involved romantically.
