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."

I hate to speak ill of the dead but I was in my car late one night when Sylvia Browne was on the radio live on air. They were talking about the Chilean Miners who were buried underground. She said that they were dead already and there was no hope for them and just 15 minutes after She had said that, the news broke that the Miners had been found alive. Sylvia Browne lost all of her credibility that night and soon after Montel Williams was out of a show.

That is a very disrespectful poll, even for TMZ. It is not in anyway funny. Nor would it be any funnier if it was your own mother who passed away. Come on, you guys can't be that ignorant.

She may have been a fake. Most people realize that.

But her faker y brought peace to many people in their time of need. They needed closure, they needed peace, they needed the ability to let go, and she brought them that.

Fake or not, when people thought she was real, she gave them what they needed.

Fake or not, I hope this woman rests in peace and is with her maker.

Sylvia Brown was a fake and a con artist. Anyone who thought she really was psychic needs to get a reality check. That is what con artists do. They scam others. They are talented at scamming people. People who take money from others and pose as having some type of psychic ability are good at faking their "ability". If someone was truly psychic and really wanted to help others, they would not request money. She was a fake. However, with that being said. God will be the one to judge her now.

I do remember reading in one of her books she predicted her death to be around 90?? Either way RIP Only God can judge you..

What a fraud. The only reason Montel believed her is he was stoned.

I find that "Did she see it coming?" rather distasteful, considering you are speaking of the passing of a human being, psychic or not. Please have a bit more sensitivity in the future.

Those who were open minded enough to study and had the pleasure of learning from Sylvia had an entirely new world opened up to them. For this we will be forever grateful, because our lives will never be the same. RIP Sylvia.
