9 April Fools' Day Headlines That Turned Out to Be True (Photos)

  9 April Fools' Day Headlines That Turned Out to Be True (Photos) From the death of Marvin Gaye to a Will Ferrell-Kristen Wiig Lifetime movie, these events were unfortunately timed for April Fools' Day but were 100 percent real. Happy April Fool's Day. We hope you don't fall for any tricks — and that you don't take any real headline to be fake. Here are some examples of April 1 headlines that turned out to be completely real. Singer Marvin Gaye was fatally shot by his father, Marvin Gaye Sr., on April 1, 1984. The news was so shocking and the timing so unfortunate that even Gaye's close friend Smokey Robinson thought it was a morbid prank by the disc jockey on the radio station where he heard it.
