Infamous celebrity psychic Sylvia Browne died on November 20th at the age of seventy-seven.  Browne spent her entire life claiming to be a powerful psychic, but she ended up hurting more people than she helped, according to The Huffington Post. In fact, it remains to be clear whether she actually helped anyone at all. She mostly rose to fame or infamy as a result of her multiple appearances on the Montel Williams Show from 1998 to 2008. Her talents included speaking to the dead and providing information about missing people. However, most of her predictions were very wrong.

In 2004 her most infamous prediction involved telling a mother that her kidnapped daughter was dead. It was later discovered that the abducted girl, Amanda Berry, was not dead and had been held captive for almost a decade. The girl’s mother died before this information was made known. Browne reacted to the media frenzy surrounding her misguided prediction by simply saying, “Only God is right all the time.”


Her psychic success rate ranked from eighty-seven to ninety percent, but Skeptical Inquirer labeled her accuracy at zero. She even charged the police department four hundred dollars for her so-called psychic advice. She charged the father of a missing boy seven hundred dollars telling him his son was dead and had been kidnapped by a man with dark skin and dreadlocks. It was later discovered that a Caucasian man with short hair was the true culprit. Again she answered the media with, “Only God is right all the time.”

People in the psychic community refuse to accept Browne as a certified medium. Investment fraud and grand theft are also added to the charges of her many failed predictions. She even inaccurately predicted her own death. She told everyone she would die at eighty-eight years old; she was seventy-seven when she passed away.
