* UrbanLegend: For more than 30 years, it was rumored that she actually despised gays, despite becoming one of the first gay icons of disco music. The rumors started after she became a born-again-christian. Those who attended some of her concerts since claimed to have heard her make horrible statements about gays, like how the AIDS virus was God's gift to gays. Many, if not all right-wing Christian Conservatives (of which Summer was one, according to Radio/RushLimbaugh), have been known to despise gays, and some even go so far as to believe that AllGaysArePedophiles. Even now, after her death, these rumors still circulate.

* ForegoneConclusion: Summer believed her lung cancer was brought on by inhaling the particles that were the result of the 9/11 hijackers crashing their planes into the original World Trade Center towers on that day. Summer had an apartment in New York City by the former Trade Center towers that she was actually in on that day, and somehow, she predicted that 9/11 would happen.
