Reports: TV psychic Miss Cleo dead at 53



One of the world's most famous psychics died Tuesday morning in a Florida hospital.

Youree Dell Harris, better known as Miss Cleo, was battling colon cancer, TMZ reports.

Her first breakthrough to fame came  in 1997 through commercials where she urged viewers to "call me now."

She had not been a TV psychic since 2003. Later, she found work as a voice actor in the video game "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City."

She is also cited in the documentary "Hotline," which explores the nature of phone hotlines.

She insisted to VICE that she wasn't a psychic, but a practitioner of voodoo. Her bosses, however, insisted a "psychic" would be more palatable to U.S. audiences.
