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."

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.

Dear lawd they're spinning it already-"graduated"? "Having a party" on the other side? How dare you. She was an unaccountable liar. Bless her soul.

She was an awful woman. She was a liar and a con artist. Instead of telling people she didn't know what happened to their loved one, she made up bull**** stories which either kept those poor peoples' false hope alive when their loved one was dead, or crushed people telling them their loved one was dead when they were actually alive. Shame on her, and her soul. At least she can't torment people anymore.

Good riddance to a charlatan preying on the hopes of the grieving. Anyone else remember her fraud convictions or are they going to deify the huckster. I hope she burned all the way down.

I'll miss seeing her on television.
I used to see her on Montel.
I didn't know she was that old.
It doesn't matter if she was psychic or not, people should still be respectful.
The cruel people on here wouldn't be joking if it was either of their family members.
