The woman who made the psychic character Miss Cleo famous has died, according to TMZ.

The report says she passed away in a Palm Beach County, Fla. hospice center after battling cancer.

Miss Cleo’s real name was Youree Harris.

She was born in Los Angeles but found fame as a Jamaican TV psychic in ads that ran from 1997 to 2003, according to the Daily News.

Last year, a company that owned the rights to Miss Cleo’s character sued General Mills alleging copyright infringement for hiring her to promote its breakfast cereal, the Associated Press reported.
