Lady Gaga believes she is being haunted by an “annoying” ghost called Ryan a source close to the star has revealed.

While in Dublin for her Monster Ball tour, one of her crew members told the Irish Daily Star newspaper about Ryan: “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.

“He’s 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: “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 skeptical they agreed to take part.”

The ghost has good taste, we will give him that!
