London: ‘The X Factor’ judges Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul spent the night in a haunted hotel in Dallas during an audition for the US version of the singing reality show.
They checked into The Stoneleigh Hotel & Spa in Dallas, Texas but they had no idea about its reputation. While fellow judge LA Reid checked out as soon as he arrived, Cowell and Abdul remain there a little longer.
"LA didn`t even know the story of the ghosts; he just couldn`t be inside the hotel. He was first to check in and left before the others arrived, saying it had a `weird feeling about it.` Everyone joked he was being a diva, but when they heard about the hotel really being haunted they just thought he was smart!"
"All the other judges were freaked out and insisted on changing hotels or rooms, but Simon was quite happy with the ghosts. He was fascinated by them. It wouldn`t surprise anyone if he insists on staying in only haunted hotels in future!" said the source.
