Courteney Cox Sold Her House Because It Was Haunted: "There Is Someone Standing Behind You"

Courteney Cox sold her house because she thought it was haunted.

The Friends actress got rid of the property after a number of people reported feeling the presence of spirits around them.

While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her new TV show, Shining Vale, which happens to be a writer who moves into a haunted house, Cox was asked about her experiences with ghosts.

Cox, 57, told Kimmel: “I have had one. I didn't believe at first, but I lived in this house in Laurel Canyon, which is in LA, obviously. It was [1930s burleseque entertainer] Gypsy Rose Lee's house and Carole King['s].”

Cox shared how the ‘Tapestry’ singer-songwriter came over and did a seance with her and though she was too starstruck to be fully immersed in the experience, she listened as she explained about the people who had left a supernatural mark on the home.

She continued: “So Carole King came over to my house and she said there had been a divorce that was really ugly, and there was a ghost in the house. And I was like, 'Yeah, whatever''. But other people who had stayed there with me, like friends of mine, said they felt an encounter with a woman who was sitting on the edge of the bed. And I was ''Yeah, whatever.''

The Scream star and King also bonded over a seance. "But I was just so in awe of her that I didn't listen a word," she said.

However, Cox was convinced to finally move out after a brief exchange with a delivery man.

Cox, who has a 17-year-old daughter Coco with ex-husband David Arquette and is a relationship with Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid, said: “But then I was at the house one day not being a believer. And the doorbell rang. It was a UPS guy or something. And I opened the door and he said, "Do you know this house is haunted?''

"And I go, ''Yeah, why? Why do you think that?'' And he goes, ''Because there is someone standing behind you.'' And I was like, ''Let's sell''

After Kimmel asked if this was really the reason she sold the house, she quipped: “Probably.”

She added: “'You don't think of it the same way. You start seeing things.”
