The singer told all about the Jackson family's haunted history during a recent taping of TV show "Celebrity Ghost Stories," revealing the estate that became his home in 1968 was built on Indian burial grounds and attracted all manner of spirits.
 
And Jackson was left spooked late one night when two evil ghosts visited him in the bedroom he shared with brother Marlon.
 
He claims the elderly ghosts picked on him at a time he was exhausted and stressed following a long day in the studio with the Jackson 5.
 
He says, "I felt very frightened...I think they picked a time when you're weak. I was very very tired and very sleepy and that was the moment for them, so I gave them the opportunity to come and visit me. From that point on I never slept with the lights out. To this day I sleep with the lights on."
