Whether it’s a strange gift, a bizarre request, or even just a mix-up, Hollywood’s biggest celebs have seen it all. Fortunately, most of them pick up these encounters as part of their job – but there’s no doubt that things can get a little weird when you’re a celebrity with super passionate fans!

“This woman was convinced that I was the father of her child and that I had never met her. She marches into this restaurant and says, ‘Are you going to deny that he is yours?’ And I say ‘what?’ And she says, “Are you ready to take a paternity test or not? He’s your son! “That was a very surreal experience,” Dax said during an MTV interview.
2. Jonas Brothers

“We’re still trying to figure out how they actually bought a dead shark. I mean, is there a website like Buyadeadshark.com?” Kevin said Digital Spy.

“Somebody cut off an ear once and sent it to me, that was very strange. A whole ear. The Van Gogh parade. The note just said, are you listening? I never knew who it was, who out there missed his ear. I poked a hole in it and wore it as a necklace! Just don’t put your whole body in a suitcase and send it to us, “Jared told Radio X’s Phil Clifton.

“I was in a bar once and a guy came up to me and said, ‘I know this sounds weird, but are you going to slap my boyfriend in the face? He’s over there.’ I thought, ‘I’m sorry, what was that?’ And he said, ‘I’ll pay you twenty dollars if you just punch my boyfriend in the face. He just really wants you to punch him in the face,’ “Aubrey said to Dewey Singleton.

10. Dolly Parton
Early in her career, Dolly Parton says she had a bizarre experience when a “fanatical” fan left a baby on her doorstep named after her hit song “Jolene”.

Dolly says she wasn’t ready to raise a child at the time and called the right people to resolve the situation.
“We immediately called Human Service and looked after the baby until it got there. We didn’t know or hear about it. I didn’t know anything else. What do you do in such a situation? There are some crazy people in this world! Can you imagine this situation? It wasn’t like it was a kitten or a pooch. It was a baby named Jolene! ”Dolly told the Windy City Times.

“They were really shy like ‘Sorry I hate to bother you’ and I know what’s coming. ‘Are you Dionne Warwick?’ That would be great. If someone looked like this, I’d love it. I had a moment of ‘I love Dionne Warwick!’ And then I thought: ‘You don’t know who one of us is!’ “Lisa said on the” Queen Latifah Show “.
