Spirit possession may not be what is happening here however as it could also be a case of Multiple Personality Disorder. The condition is said to be caused by childhood trauma and is related to hysteria.
How common are such claims among pop musicians?
I think they're pretty common. But it's just like, people keep saying it's her persona, her image, a marketing tool. If that were the case, she wouldn't be saying she tried to make him leave and he wouldn't, she wouldn't say "he says the things I don't want to say, he's violent" These are not the comments of someone who is creating a persona for her career, and the fact that people pass it off like that is the creepiest part to me.
As far as it being like schitzophrenia or something along those lines, that could be possible, but if I had to give my opinion, I would say it doesn't seem the most likely explanation, though it is definitely a possibility.
