TMZ is reporting that infamous television psychic Miss Cleo has died from a battle with Cancer.

TMZ.com reports:

“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.

We’re told Cleo was originally diagnosed with colon cancer … but it 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.”

In 2015 she reemerged for a Benefit Cosmetics Flawless Friends Network video.

RIP Miss Cleo!
