Celebrity psychic Sylvia Browne responded Wednesday after taking a beating in social media for mistakingly telling Amanda Berry’s mother she was dead on “The Montel Williams Show” nearly nine years ago.

“For more than 50 years as a spiritual psychic and guide, when called upon to either help authorities with missing person cases or to help families with questions about their loved ones, I have been more right than wrong,” Ms. Browne posted to Facebook. “If ever there was a time to be grateful and relieved for being mistaken, this is that time. Only God is right all the time. My heart goes out to Amanda Berry, her family, the other victims and their families. I wish you a peaceful recovery.”

Amanda Berry’s mother, Louwana Miller told a Plain Dealer reporter that she believed Ms. Browne’s prediction “98 percent.” She later died in 2006 of heart failure at age 44.

“Hey Sylvia, Amanda Berry is alive. Think of the torment you put her mother through when you told the poor woman her daughter was dead,” Michael Martin posted on Browne’s Facebook page. “Then the mother herself died before she could learn the truth. You are evil, evil, evil and ought to be ashamed of yourself.”

Kenny Skidmore posted, “Please redeem yourself by NOT doing any new missing person cases … EVER.”

Psicologia Unea Pedregal wrote, “Amanda should sue you for the pain and suffering you caused her mother. That way people will know the big fraud you are. People help spread the word so Amanda can do something about this parasite.”

Ms. Browne’s Facebook statement also said that Sherry Cole, Amanda Berry’s cousin, “reached out to Sylvia this morning to let her know that she supports her, loves her, knows Sylvia never claims to be 100% right, but wanted to let her know that she was accurate in her description of the perpetrators at the time.”
