Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne & Ryan Gosling Are Distant Cousins -Family Tree pic

Researchers at Ancestry.com have discovered some extremely surprising news: Justin Bieber is cousins with Ryan Gosling and Avril Lavigne! Not only that, but he’s also related to Celine Dion!

According to a family tree provided by Ancestry.com, Bieber and Gosling are 11th cousins once removed while Bieber and Lavigne are 12th cousins. They share common relatives Mathurin Roy and Marguerite Bire who were born in France in early 1600s and moved to Quebec, CANADA after getting married in 1637.

Genealogist Lesley Anderson says:

“Discoveries like this are rare, so the fact that some of Canada’s top entertainment industry stars are all related is especially fascinating. There’s something special about discovering a shared connection, and to be able to go so far back in history to do so is one of the most satisfying aspects of family history research.”

Here is Ancestory.com’s aforementioned family tree:

    • JBFAN4LIFE!!!

    • bieber fan

      its his choice to be with her no one else. thats the problem with fans like you. you become so obsess with the kid that you think that you own him or decide whats good or bad for him. im telling you you are a sad little person.

      • K Bieber

        its not obsession its called caring about Justin, and its not sad, and as his fans were suppose to look out for him not just go along with one of his first celebrity g.f. its called looking out for him in case u didnt notice (:

    • Love Katie 14

      Umm well just because you don’t like her doesn’t make a difference it depends on what justin wants and it seems like he loves her and that she loves him so it doesn’t matter what any of us thinks its up to justin
