During a scene on Celebrity Big Brother, Busey claimed the ghost of the late actor, who died in 2009, visited him prior to him joining the show. In a conversation with former Strictly Come Dancing star James Jordan and Gogglebox’s George Gilbey, Busey revealed that he has a connection to the “other side” ever since his heart stopped during surgery in 1988.
“Patrick Swayze’s spirit came right through me… and my father’s spirit came right through me,” Busey said. “I’ve been to the other side, after my death after brain surgery… so I have a connection to that spiritual world.”
To which Gilbey replied jokingly, “I don’t know if I would want that connection.”
But Busey wasn’t being facetious. In fact, the Point Break star turned serious. He told his Big Brother cast mates, “It’s a divine connection. Nothing’s bad unless you want it to be… you gotta take it the way it is or you won’t get it.”
Busey and Swayze starred in the cult hit Point Break together.
