Famed TV psychic Miss Cleo passed away on Tuesday morning at a Palm Beach County hospice facility after a battle with cancer. She was 53.
Cleo, born Youree Harris, was originally diagnosed with colon cancer, but it eventually 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.”
My condolences to Miss Cleo’s family during this difficult time.
