Amy Winehouse fled her home last night (21.05.08), claiming ghosts were trying to harm her.
The troubled 24-year-old singer says a poltergeist - who she has named Henry - is haunting her North London flat and is trying to harm her.
She has even attributed scratches on her arms to ghost attacks and is now refusing to return to her abode until her home is exorcised. Amy is temporarily staying at the Chelsea Harbour hotel.
A friend of the 'Back to Black' singer told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "She has a spare room in her house which she has been to terrified to redecorate because she believes a child died there. It has creepy aeroplane wallpaper and a weird feel to it.
"Amy is terrified because she thinks he's managed to take over the entire house and has brought bad spirits with him that are scratching and harming her."
This is the latest in a string of bizarre incidents for Amy. Earlier this week, three strange internet films of her and rock star Pete Doherty were released, including one where the pair played with baby mice.
Meanwhile, Glastonbury festival organisers yesterday confirmed Amy will perform this year in a slot on the main stage on June 28.
