Michael Jackson may have passed away three years ago, but some of his former neighbors claim that the King of Pop's spirit still lives on.
Jackson, 50-year-old pop star who was pronounced dead on June 25, 2009 after an overdose on the surgical anesthetic propofol, has reportedly been scaring neighbors of his former Beverly Hills mansion. A source recently told the Daily Star that neighbors have heard the pop star's music recently along with his singing.
"It has freaked everyone out. When he was living there, Michael would regularly look through the curtains and see who was around," the source said. "People have heard his music coming from the house and even singing. Everyone thinks that Michael's ghost walks around the house."
One neighbor reportedly told the publication that Jackson took an interest in the afterlife, which may explain the return of his spirit.
"It is so weird. The world knew that Michael was obsessed by the afterlife, from his songs like Thriller," the neighbor said. "He believed in spirits – now his own has returned."
Although no members of Jackson's family have confirmed any belief of the pop star's spirit haunting his former mansion, many people celebrated his life on Monday by taking time to tweet about his memory.
"Three years ago today the world lost a legend. RIP Michael Jackson," rapper Wiz Khalifa tweeted. "Your music lives on for you. Thank you for everything!"
Spike Lee, film director, producer and actor, also tweeted his condolences to the late singer.
"On this day, June 25, in the year of our Lord 2009 Michael Jackson left us in his physical state," Lee tweeted. "May the almighty continue to bless him."
Paris Jackson, 14-year-old daughter of the late singer, also joined in on the "RIP Michael Jackson" Twitter trend that took place on the three-year anniversary of the singer's death.
"Dad you will forever be in my heart," the young Jackson tweeted. "I love you."
