London: Singer Adele is reportedly refusing to sleep alone in her seven million pound new mansion because she is convinced it's haunted.

The 23-year-old singer recently bought the house located in Sussex and she has hired her female driver as a bodyguard to stay with her in the ten-bedroom house, reported a website.

"I'm not rattling around here on my own. It gives me the creeps," Adele was heard telling her friend.

The mansion, which has two swimming pools, used to be a convent and has a private chapel.

"Adele was so excited to be renting such a lavish property but it has not turned out as happily as it should have. She is convinced it is haunted. She knows about its religious history — and it's a big place to be in on your own in the dead of night," Adele's friend said.
