When a star suddenly dies unexpectedly it can send shockwaves through the entertainment world, but what about when an even bigger star follows them into the afterlife shortly after and steals some of the limelight? We’ve counted down the top celebrity deaths that were overshadowed by another passing, so you can see which stars might not have gotten the recognition they deserved.

One of the very first cases of famous deaths overshadowing each other came when second American president John Adams died on the very same day as third president Thomas Jefferson.
