Man Blames Ghost for Breakup

Man Blames Ghost for Breakup

A man in England now living the single life says that a seven-foot-tall ghost is to blame for his girlfriend dumping him. The bizarre story of love gone wrong, recounted in a British newspaper, befell paranormal investigator Ed Booker and his girlfriend Donna Hall. The ghost hunter explains that it all began after he took part in an exorcism at a home in the town of Horsham.

During his visit to the site, the team of researchers allegedly encountered a strange, seven-foot-tall apparition which left them chilled to the bone. "This figure came up in the middle of us. I can only describe it as a circus ringmaster, dressed all in black with a big top hat," he recalled. Following that nightmarish moment, Booker claims, the spirit has seemingly stuck to him. "This ghost is ruining my life," he lamented about the impact the clingy Casper has caused.

Specifically, Booker says that he immediately began to feel sick and depressed after the exorcism. Other odd events also began to unfold as he acquired unexplained scratches on his arms during his sleep and even spotted the spectral ringmaster in his home on at least one occasion. And, eerily, Booker reportedly found the word 'die' written on the inside of the windows in his apartment.

According to the remorseful ghost hunter, he was not the only target of the spirit's twisted torment. Apparently having somehow raised the ire of the apparition, perhaps by being too close to Booker, his now-ex-girlfriend was purportedly pinned down by the spirit. The attack left her so shaken, he says, that she subsequently split up with him, leaving the paranormal investigator with both the unwanted spirit of the ringmaster still lingering around him as well as a broken heart.
