Demi Lovato has consulted a medium and "ghost hunters" as she is convinced her Texas home is haunted.

The singer/actress believes the spirit of a young girl is present in the property, and she has even called in a team of experts to back up her claims.

In an article for, she writes, "I go ghost hunting. My house in Texas is so ridiculously haunted. Not by a bad spirit, but a little girl. I think her name is Emily. I've had a medium come over and ghost hunters, and they both told me the same name, Emily."

Lovato insists she has seen the spirit many times over the years and believes she has a special connection to the afterlife.

She adds, "There were so many times that I saw her when I was growing up. I saw her in my closet one time. When I was three years old my mom caught me talking to something by myself. She asked, 'Who are you talking to?' and I said, 'My best friend Emily'...

"I think I have a really strong connection to the afterlife. My mom's friend is a medium, and we've talked about things... Stuff will just happen. When I walk into a room, I can tell if something has happened there or not, or if a hotel is haunted."
