Brazil president called priest to deal with 'haunted' palace

President Temer, 76 and his wife, Marcela, 33, had only stayed in the Alvorada Palace for two weeks before they decided to vacate the premises.

Temer told Veja magazine that "the energy wasn't good" and that they even tried to get a priest to drive out the "evil spirits".

The couple will now move back into the residence of the vice-president, where they had been living since 2011.

President Temer had been the country's vice-president until Dilma Rouseff was impeached last August.

The presidential palace was designed by Oscar Niemeyer and built in 1958. There are 160 employees working in the residency.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
