Most people would assume that anyone who works with celebrities or well-known people must be the best. After all, celebrities can afford to pay top dollar so the people they work with must be the best of the best. Right? Well, that’s not always true because nobody is right all of the time.
In fact, there have been times when well-known psychics or clairvoyants have been outright wrong. Take a look below to see summaries when these celeb psychics have been publicly mistaken. Those instances have not only caused public embarrassment, but they have caused skeptics and believer alike to doubt the psychic involved.
This late psychic recently came under fire for telling the mother of Amanda Berry, the then-16-year-old girl who disappeared in the early 2000s, that the girl had died. In 2004, Browne went on the Montel Williams Show to tell the mother that the girl had been killed and her last words were “Goodbye, Mom, I love you.”
However, Berry was among the three women rescued from a Cleveland, Ohio home after years in captivity. There was a severe backlash in 2013. In response, Browne’s camp pointed to her 50-year history helping with missing person cases and said she was more right than wrong.
Berry’s mother died of heart failure a year after Browne’s appearance on Montel Williams. Browne herself died in late 2013.
A self-proclaimed magician who became famous for bending spoons only with the power of his mind, Uri Geller appeared on the Tonight Show in front a tough crowd. Then-host Johnny Carson didn’t let Geller bring his own props. Instead, it caused quite the awkward moment when Geller couldn’t bend the spoon. Geller reportedly admitted later that he didn’t have any magical powers.
Three Fake Psychics Exposed on BBC
A BBC talk show host invited three psychics to an old burned out factory to channel the ghost of the former owner. All three of the psychics seemed to come up with something about the man, who reportedly died after horses trampled him. But the only problem was that the host of the show had made up the man, a fact which none of the psychics seemed to pick up on. The psychics made up several excuses but the fact was that they would have only gotten the fake information if they had done an Internet search on the owner before they appeared on the show.
In May of 2014, celebrity psychic reportedly did a live psychic reading with a photograph to communicate with someone from dead. She made contact with the person in the photo and passed on messages from the person on the other side. But, according to a blogger, the person who submitted the photo got the instructions wrong and submitted a photo of herself rather than the deceased person. The result, according to press reports, was that Morgan was communicating with someone who was quite alive. The reports said the audience laughed so hard that Morgan had trouble continuing with her event.
Does this mean that all celebrity psychic (and psychics in general) are fake? No, it doesn’t. That’s because there are just as many times, if not more, where celebrity psychics and clairvoyants have been relied on and trusted for information.

The bottom line
Just like in any profession, celebrity doesn’t always equal 100% right. Many authentic psychics will tell you that there is no way to be right all the time. Though the psychics are there to offer guidance, you won’t necessarily get better guidance just because the psychics you choose have clients who are more well-known.
Instead, choose a psychic you can trust, who displays genuine psychic ability and who you have consulted for a test reading. Avoid psychic scams by resisting the hype, eliminating anything that sounds too good to be true (because it probably is) and judging a psychic ability by how that particular psychic relates to you.
Choose a psychic by doing your research on the psychic or the company he or she works for, such as the Oranum Global Community. From there, try to get a free live chat or a free consultation to test out how you and the psychic interact in a relationship and whether you want to move forward with them as your spiritual guide.
