EXCLUSIVE

0726_miss_cleo_last_pic_tmz_wmThere won't be any more calls to Miss Cleo ... the iconic TV psychic is dead after battling cancer ... TMZ has learned. 

A rep for Miss Cleo -- whose real name was Youree Harris -- tells us she died Tuesday morning in Palm Beach County, FL. We're told she was recently hospitalized, but was discharged last week to a hospice center.

We're told Cleo was originally diagnosed with colon cancer ... but it spread to her liver and lungs.

The rep said Cleo remained a "pillar of strength" during her illness ... and died surrounded by family and friends.

Cleo's Jamaican character and her psychic commercials became a cult classic in the late '90s ... thanks to her catchphrase, "CALL ME NOW!" 

Miss Cleo was actually born in L.A. -- she just nailed the accent.

After the Psychic Readers Network closed shop, Cleo bounced around to various jobs ... including voicing a character in the video game, "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City."

NBA's Glen 'Big Baby' Davis I Knew Alton Sterling 'He Wouldn't Hurt A Fly'

7/6/2016 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0706-glen-davis-tmz-01NBA player Glen "Big Baby" Davis says he knew Alton Sterling -- the man killed on video by police in Baton Rouge -- and tells TMZ Sports he was a "Great guy" who "wouldn't hurt a fly."

Davis -- who grew up in Baton Rouge -- met "Big Alton" years ago and would sometimes give him CDs to sell to help promote Davis' music. Davis says it wasn't just promotion, but it was a way to help Alton make a living for his family. 

Davis says the two got to know each other -- and he has nothing but glowing words for the 37-year-old.

"Great guy, big personality. CDs were his way to make income to support his family. Not a guy who would use violence at all."

Sterling's shooting has reignited the national conversation about police brutality, and with protests in Baton Rouge threatening to spiral out of control ... Davis urged athletes from the area to get involved to help keep the peace. 

"People from the city who have a voice should speak up. I'm sure Mayor Kip Holden and those guys are taking good care of things, but it's important for people who come from there to show love."

Jim Carrey's Girlfriend Suicide Note Shows Despair Over Breakup

7/5/2016 1:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0705-cathriona-white-jim-carey-INSTAGRAM-TMZ-01Jim Carrey's ex-girlfriend who killed herself wrote in a suicide note she did not want to go on after their breakup, saying, "I'm just not for this world."

TMZ has obtained documents which outline the suicide note written by Cathriona White, who fatally OD'd on multiple prescription meds back in Sept. 2015, shortly after Carrey broke up with her.

White wrote to Jim, "I've spent 3 days now in disbelief that you're not here. I can go on brokenhearted and try to put the pieces back. I could, I just don't have the will this time." She goes on, "I'm sorry you felt I wasn't there for you. I tried to give you my best part."

Sources close to Jim say they were not broken up ... merely taking a break from each other.

White becomes matter of fact, telling Jim, "I don't really know about burial or that sort of thing. You are my family so whatever you choose will be fine." 

She adds, "Please forgive me. I'm just not for this world."

According to official docs, it appears White took some of Carrey's meds. Police found a text on her phone from Jim, asking where his painkillers for his back went, noting they were missing from under the sink. We're also told she had been taking painkillers in the weeks leading up to her death ... painkillers that were prescribed to her after a surgical procedure.

We're told White had tried to kill herself with pills in 2012 after her dad died, and she committed suicide on the third anniversary of her dad's death.
