London: Jermaine Jackson is afraid of the dark ever since he was visited by ghosts in his old house.
The star had a bone-chilling encounter with ghosts at the family`s Encino, California compound that left him terrified of the dark.
The ‘Do What You Do’ singer told all about the Jackson family`s haunted history during a recent taping of U.S. TV show ‘Celebrity Ghost Stories’, revealing the estate that became his home in 1968 was built on Indian burial grounds and attracted all manner of spirits.
"I felt very frightened... I think they picked a time when you`re weak. I was very very tired and very sleepy and that was the moment for them, so I gave them the opportunity to come and visit me,” The Daily Express quoted him as saying.
"From that point on I never slept with the lights out. To this day I sleep with the lights on," he added.
