Lea Michele's experience in her New York City brownstone apartment during her early 20s was anything but pleasant. It took Michele some time to figure out what was going on, but as she kept hearing a woman warming up and singing scales, she came to the conclusion that her apartment was haunted.
On "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Michele went into more detail about her haunted apartment, claiming that since she lived on the top floor, "it wasn't surrounded by any other buildings, so there was really no way it could be anyone." For a while, Michele thought she was probably imagining things, but one day, something major happened.
"I'm on the bottom floor of the apartment, and I hear all this noise upstairs. It sounded like a window burst open," Michele said, and "I go up there, and it was silent. There was nothing at all up there; it was so quiet." The window suddenly burst open once more in front of her, and she immediately began apologizing to whoever or whatever was haunting her apartment.
After some digging, Michele learned that the apartment "used to be a nunnery in the 1900s," and she exclaimed, "I moved out so fast. Let me tell you, I was out of there," adding that she was sharing her apartment with the Mother Superior of the nunnery. After relocating to California, she made herself at home in Brentwood's Mandeville Canyon and declared, "This house is healing."
