Youree Harris, better know as Miss Cleo, died Tuesday morning in Palm Beach County, Florida after battling with colon cancer. TMZ reported, Miss Cleo was recently hospitalized, but was discharged last week to a hospice center.
Originally she was diagnosed with colon cancer, but it spread to her liver and lungs.
The rep said Cleo remained a “pillar of strength” during her illness. She died surrounded by friends and family.
Cleo’s Jamaican character became a cult classic in the late ’90s. Her catchphrase, “CALL ME NOW,” is what made her commercials memorable.
Miss Cleo was actually born in L.A. — she just nailed the accent.
After the Psychic Readers Network closed shop, Cleo has had various jobs including the voice of Vice City in Grand Theft Auto.
