'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.

It's very possible there maybe something there, a paranormal group should do an investigation. I never take for granted what anyone says or experiences and I'm a skeptic as well. The first thing I would try and do is debunk any claims of paranormal activity. Ignorance gets you nowhere so look at the past history of the mansion/home because there could have been someone who possibly died there and still could be hanging around. Being a Paranormal Investigator myself I've done several investigations and believe in the afterlife, spirits, ghosts what have you. So don't be so quick to say the contestants are acting like babies because these things "DO" really happen all the time and alot of times we don't allways here about. Just an fyi and good luck idols.

I think one kid got freaked out, told another kid, and then it caused a mass hysteria. However, it would be cool if the Ghost Adventures Crew went there and actually did find something. Honestly, Ghost Adventures is a way better show to watch the stinking American Idol!

It doesn't matter whether they are adults or not. If something "unearthly" is going on in that house, I would want to leave too! It had to be serious to want to leave such a beautiful place.

I bet the ghost problem is because of Naima-because she is from a foreign country-africa-they do voodoo and wild dances-demonic chants-etc. and I bet she might just have some kind of object that causes a ghost to be attached to it. read a sylvia browne book-about spirits- hauntings-etc. or maybe someone might have put a curse on the idol mansion for whatever reason-they might NEED a real priest-or a person to do some cleansing of the place and remove the spirit that may be there or ask all of the idols about any evil objects they may have like a witchcraft book or skull necklace-or who recently died that might be haunting them now. Did anyone in naima's family die before she auditioned? or a friend? there has to be a reason that a ghost comes back. pst.

silvya brown is a lying freak

either way I want zak to take the as**** in this clip and put him in the trans allegheny lunatic asylum as well as the other holier-than-thou commenters ("anyone who believes in ghosts is an idiot and an attention seeker" etc) and leave them overnight there.
