Sylvia Browne

World Famous Psychic DEAD

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."

Wasn't she the one that was actually caught saying she liked to "take money off the gullible"? and also told a woman who had lost her husband in 9/11 "No he drowned"

What a horrible woman!!!! I think the world is better off without leeches like her!

I don't know whether she really believed the things she stated but that's between her & her maker now.

I personally believe she brought some comfort to many of the people who wanted to hear what they wanted to hear about their loved ones. The times she got it wrong & misled police or families doesn't really make up for that though.

Condolences to her family & loved ones.

Sylvia helped police & detectives solve many cases & nobody is perfect. U ppl have never made mistakes, I guess. That's great. How heartless can some of u ? Name calling & wishing someone to hell who had helped & was loved by so many... Thou shall not judge. Now who's going to hell? Get your life.

That is a damn shame she passed so young. Regardless of her celebrity status, she was a very nice lady to work for behind the scenes. I only had the pleasure of working for one of her performances as a stagehand in Chicago, but she was very gracious for everyone who would assist her. It made all of us, regardless of our position, feel very appreciated. She will be missed.

I have more faith that Lindsay Lohan can predict a great career move more than Sylvia Browne could predict anything.
