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."

1 less scammer to prey on the weak and stupid - a good start. Psychics and religious zealots have a ton in common - they are fracking nuts and feed off ignorance and desperation. Good riddance, can we lose John Edward next, plse???

She was wonderful. I read her book "Life on the Other Side" years ago, and it makes you think twice about lots of things. God Bless You Sylvia.

The hate and judgment within these comments is so disheartening. She wrote of sacrificial decisions to serve god... She was a good woman who tried to help. What good comes to you that talk ill of the dead. Shame on you. I pity your souls.

It's sad that when a HUMAN BEING dies, such vile, nasty, despicable things can be said about them. Regardless of this woman's public life, she was a mother, grandmother, sister, wife, daughter. She had a family and they've lost a loved one. I bet most of you hiding behind your computer screens making these awful comments would also call yourself "Christians." Regardless, may you rest in peace Sylvia. Bon voyage.

How are you going to post this, but when Syd Field died; nothing. Syd died more for this world than this con artist.

Sylvia Brown was a con artist, but a very good one. I personally was stupid enough to give her a G note for a reading which amounted to a load of horse ****. Confirmed one day when I watched her on Montel another person with no conscience so ever. She was telling people in the audience the same load of rubbish that she tried to tell me. She wrote books that people wanted to believe in and was very good at that. Made a fortune at deceiving good honest people. No legacy there except another rip-off artist. Montel Williams had her on for to make money. He re is a guy whose conscience bothers him now big time. Not to worry she wont be going to hell as she has just come from it. What separates good people from the not so good people is something called a conscience neither her or Montel have a conscience so they will for sure meet again. Bottom line people is not to wish anyone any thing negative. There is a Universal law it states what goes around comes around. There is no way around this , none. Mrs Brown would be the first to tell you this but like when she was alive she could not and she can't now either. Do you finally see the real can only hope so. JMM

Sorry for the families loss. Despite what many of you nasty talking people think. She was right about a lot of things! A LOT! And God Bless you Silvia, we've followed your predictions and books for many years and you will be missed. Wish We could have met you.

I don't like to speak ill of the dead, and there may very well be those with gifts like she claimed to have out there, but Sylvia was a scam artist and didn't care who she hurt with her lies.
