Brazil's president, Michel Temer, left his official residence, the Alvorada palace, just ten days after moving in with his family due to "bad vibes", a Brazilian weekly reported.

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

"I felt something unusual there", Veja news outlet reported.

He added, "We even started to wonder: could there be ghosts?". Now Mr Temer says he is returning to the vice-presidential residence of Jaburu Palace because he hasn't been able to sleep at the official residence. "The energy wasn't good", the president reportedly told Veja magazine. Marcela (his former beauty queen wife) felt the same thing. "Only [seven-year-old son] Michelzinho, who went running from one end to the other, liked it". The vast estate, located in Brasilia, boasts a huge swimming pool, a football field, a chapel, a medical center and vast lawns.

Much like Rousseff, the 76-year-old Temer has also had to face up to corruption scandals.

Acting President Michel Temer moved into the Alvorada Palace following Dilma Roussef's impeachment a year ago.

Luckily since there is no vice president at this time, the residence was vacant and Temer moved there with his family.

Recall that Temer moved into the presidential quarters after succeeding Dilma Rousseff, the immediate past president, who was impeached for breaking budget accounting laws.

One of the president's aides told Veja the vice-president's palace is "more like an ordinary house".

The Independent reports that Temer has been accused of of benefiting from illegal donations, as exposed by the the Lava Jato (Car Wash) probe.
