Miss Cleo Dead at 53

Posted July 26th, 2016 @ 12:59pm by TMZ

There won't be anymore 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.

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."

Wow!  She was so young.  I guess she's human like everyone else and the miss leading she did to people finally caught up with her.  And cancer is not conditional, it can happen to anybody.  How sad.  I remember the stink she caused pretending to be a psychic.  However, she was merely an employee, they really went after the promoters and owners of the company who fraudantly[sp] stole millions of dollars from unsuspecting folks who STILL believed what Miss Cleo told them.  That's how good an actress she was.  She should have taken the clue then that she was on the wrong stage.  She would;ve been just as successful.  I also remember when she got busted.  And how she tried to minimize her hand in destroying lives...although these folks paid her willingly.  But we all make mistakes in life and having bone cancer is not her payback but an unfortunate shift in her young life.  RIP.  But!
