Sylvia Browne

World Famous Psychic DEAD

11/20/2013 6:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

World famous psychic Sylvia Browne -- who appeared on all sorts of TV shows including "Montel" "Larry King Live" and "Unsolved Mysteries" -- has passed away .. TMZ has learned.

Browne specialized in psychic detective work, and attempted to help on several missing person cases ... with varying results. 

Browne's son, Chris, tells TMZ ... Sylvia passed away this morning in San Jose, surrounded by family and friends.  She was 77.

Browne most recently took heat after famously announcing that Amanda Berry had died after she went missing in 2003 ... because, as we all know now, she wasn't dead.  Sylvia chalked up the misinformation as a simple mistake.

The following message was just posted on Sylvia's Facebook page, "Sylvia graduated today. She was surrounded by family and friends. What a legacy. She shared so much. We will carry on her knowledge with hypnosis and Journey of the Soul and her many books. What a great party they must be having on the Other Side. Bless everyone."

Good Riddance - She will no longer be able to nonchalantly ruin other peoples lives while enriching her own.

You know what's funny is that ole what's her face---Miss Cleo took a lot of **** for her lies, but Sylvia Brown was "praised" by Montel Williams for years. LOL. Sucks she died, but we all do someday. She was just a fraud.

Now she gets to spend time with the demons she so loved talking to during these so called psychic readings. May Jesus have mercy on your soul....:(

Nothing more than a lying gypsy who hustled for dollars. Oh well, another one bites the dust. I'll send Montel flowers as I am sure he's heartbroken.

Prayers to her family. We all know she dun wrong but she was a person too despite her scams. We all do bad things, I know, not worth millions scamming folks but me thinks she wanted to make a huge living. It's about forgiveness now.

Wasn't it Sylvia Browne that voiced the demon in The Exorcist?

She didn't provide comfort to those in need and she wasn't just a fake psychic. She ripped people's hearts out by telling them their children were dead when they were later found alive (more than once). How is telling someone their kid is dead a comfort?! How is faking that not pure evil? In one case, she told someone that their loved ones were alive when they ended up dead. Some comfort that gave them. Being a phoney and a fake medium is one thing, but this is completely different. Maybe she thought she had a gift and heard voices, but a person with a heart would have stopped "sharing" it the first time they broke a parent's heart on national television to find out they were WRONG. She did it again and again.
