La Toya Jackson believes that her late brother Michael is haunting the family mansion in Encino with a tap-dancing ghost.

Michael Jackson's sister La Toya is convinced that the late star is haunting his former home - and has brought his dancing shoes with him.

The 56-year-old reality star claimed that a security guard had told her of a series of strange events at the family mansion in Encino.

Jackson says that the bizarre incidents, which include unexplained noises, have led her to believe that her brother's ghost wanders the grounds.

"He [the security guard] says that he hears someone tap-dancing. Michael used to do that every Sunday for two hours," she said on Good Day New York.

"When he told me I said 'You're kidding'. That made me want to know even more about hearing someone tap-dance over a certain part of the house.

"We go up there and no one's up there ... just tap-dancing.

"The dog barks at his room, the window, every single night at the same time. The dog doesn't even know that that's Michael's room and the security didn't know so it's weird."

The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant also claimed that she has felt the presence of the late King of Pop - who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009.

"It's the strangest thing because you feel something thick around you or behind you and you're wondering. You don't see anything - but you feel a presence.

"It is there, it's definitely there," she added.
