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."

She was a scam artist, a liar, a fraud and a phoney, and she bilked gullible people out of their money. Pure s***.

Sad for her family, and Montel Williams. Since he's bringing his talk show back and Sylvia was his go-to guest.

She was on Coast To Coast, live when there was a report about some miners being rescued alive. She bragged about how she knew all along they were alive, etc, and claimed credit. A few minutes later, the corrected report came out saying they were all dead....she tried to cover her behind by saying "I meant, they area all safe in heaven" Pure con artist fraud.

TMZ is the only org that bring up negative stuff when reporting on someone's death. You people are hollow, just like the idiots in the comment section calling this deceased woman all sorts of vile names. Remember, what you say about the dead will be said about you when you die!
