Bieber posted a list, generated by ancestry.com, that was able to connect the 3 mega-stars by DNA over many generations.
"I also just found out that I’m related to both Ryan gosling and Avril Lavigne this is the best day of my life.. it seems super legit it’s on ancestry.com" the singer wrote.
Clearly, Justin is questioning the authenticity of the finding. Also, the story and picture have been going around the internet for years. It seems Justin was just doing some surfing and came across the list.
Either way, JB's friends and fans love it. It also started a wave of people trying to connect themselves with the biebs.
"You are also related to me but you are my 27th cousin," one fan wrote."
"Ryan Gosling being your 11th cousin once removed has me weak," another confessed.
A few people also pointed out the obvious, "They are all French Canadians !!! Wouldn’t it be awkward if you had dated one of them."
As far as the breakdown, here is what the study claims, Bieber, Gosling and Lavigne share a common family connection that goes back 400 years to some of Quebec's earliest settlers.
Bieber and Gosling are 11th cousins once removed, while Justin and Lavigne are 12th cousins.
Mathurin Roy and Marguerite Biré seem to be the connection. Whoever that is...
If you are confused, just take another look at the diagram JB posted.
The best part, Justin's manager Scooter Braun pointed out what we were all thinking, "I always saw a strong resemblance."
