Cher 'haunted by ghost of Sonny Bono'

The pop diva recently revealed her otherworldly experiences during a questions and answers session.
A well known figure in the music industry, Cher has enjoyed numerous hits over the last five decades. Once part of the inseparable duo that was Sonny & Cher, the pair eventually split up but remained close up until Sonny's death in a skiing accident in 1998.

15 years on however and it seems that Sonny might not be quite as absent as most would believe, that is at least, according to Cher. The singer has claimed that the ghost of her ex-husband plays tricks on her and that she attributes paranormal occurrences to his presence.

Asked during a recent questions and answers session on Reddit whether she was afraid of ghosts Cher said "Absolutely not!!! I love ghosts. I actually think that Sonny makes a light go on. I have a beautiful chandelier that he makes the light go on when it is impossible, there is no power on. I love ghosts, I prefer ghosts to some people."

Some of you really think you have it so maped out as to wether somebody is faking or not.It doesn't make sense to speak bs if that is what it is.People no matter their status have delt with the paranormal as myself so no one can't tell me anything unless they have experienced ghost. If cher believes it's Sonny let her be you don't know what they have talked about during those pillow sessions.

High profile celebs tend to be narcissistic. Believing you are the object of a ghost's attention is narcissism. It fits.

That's a rather sweeping generalization, isn't it?

Probably not.

Maybe it's just a publicity stunt?

Could be, although any good PR advisor will recommend against getting into this sort of controversy.

you forget that people no matter how rich, how popular, how smart they are, can be totally stupid when saying things publicly, alec Baldwin is a perfect example.

I'm pretty sure this is better than us seeing her bum in mesh now.
