90s TV Psychic ‘Miss Cleo’ Dead At 53 After Cancer Battle

LOS ANGELES ( — An iconic 1990s TV psychic known to the world as “Miss Cleo” was reportedly dead Tuesday after losing her battle with cancer.

Youree Harris, 53, died this morning in Palm Beach County, Florida, a rep for Harris told TMZ.

Born in Los Angeles, Harris was best known for sporting a Jamaican accent for dozens of TV commercials that aired in the late 90s for a “pay-per-call” service offering free psychic readings.

Harris had been recently hospitalized but was discharged last week to a hospice center, according to reports.

Officials estimate in just three years, Harris’ service billed $1 billion through 900 numbers and credit cards and collected roughly half that amount.
