London: Pop star Lady Gaga thinks she is being followed by a ghost named Ryan, who has "terrified" her with his constant presence.
The "Bad Romance" hitmaker has been sharing her fears with her crew, reports contactmusic.com.
"She`s been telling us all for months that she has a male spirit called Ryan who travels the world with her. She`s pretty terrified by this spirit, but more than anything he`s annoying her as he won`t leave her alone," said a source from her touring crew.
"He hasn`t been doing anything too violent or scary but she`s freaked out by his presence. She`s a very spiritual person and in tune with the spiritual world but this is a step too far, even for her," the source added.
Although little is known about Ryan the ghost, or why he has chosen to haunt Gaga, the singer held a seance while she was in Ireland for her "Monster Ball Tour" over the weekend, in an attempt to get rid of the ghost.
"She contacted a spirit medium and organised a seance so she could communicate with him and tell him to go away. She gathered all her friends over the weekend in Belfast, Ireland, and held the seance to find out what he wants. She`s convinced she picked this up as a bad omen.
"Although most of her friends were sceptical they agreed to take part," said the source.
The 24-year-old has earlier spent thousands of dollars on ghostbusters, and she even spent close to $47,000 on Electro-Magnetic Field meters to detect spirits.
"She believes in paranormal activity and won`t take any risks when she is on the road. It`s important to her to be safe from spirits," the source added.
