'Idol' Contestants Flee -- Our Mansion Is HAUNTED!

3/24/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

GHOSTS invaded the "American Idol" mansion in Beverly Hills -- and the finalists got so freaked, they MOVED OUT of the place Monday night for good ... TMZ has learned.

American Idol Mansion Haunted

The supernatural drama began after contestants complained about bizarre flickering lights inside the house ... followed by a spooky spider infestation.

But the paranormal activity that sent the contestants over the edge happened last week -- when several wannabes claim they watched a bed sheet suddenly take on a life of its own and FLOAT down an empty hallway!!!

And as if the ghosts weren't enough, Sunday's torrential rains caused the roof to leak like a mutha.

Sources connected with the production tell us ... the contestants FREAKED OUT and demanded to move ... and "Idol" producers obliged.

We're told the gang is now safely holed up in an undisclosed location ... where the only blinding white objects are Ryan Seacrest's teeth.

This story just wreaks of yet another publicity stunt for ratings. Simon was the most interesting aspect of the show, now that he's gone they're getting desperate.

Eschewing any spooky explanation such hysteria is often a reflection of underlying anxieties. That or they buried ex-contestants under the house (joke).

people who believe in ghosts are idiots. people who say they've seen ghosts are idiots, attention seekers or both. there's no such thing as ghosts.

most people are sheep.

Ghost Hunters would go in there and probably find evidence of artifical haunting.Ya know hidden speakers,and other little hidden things that real houses don't have.This hotel is counting on this publicity.Congradulations ya gave it to em.

They spent all that money on a haunted home? I'm sure that was money well spent. Did anyone happen to get this bed sheet floating down the hall on their cell cam? Kids always have their cell phones with them.

I wonder if the ghost then headed over to Dax's new home and flickered the lights for the fun of it.

Ghost adventures to the rescue. They should do an episode in this house. Don't the contestants know that it's the fleshies you really have to worry about?
