22% of Americans have consulted a psychic or medium, according to You Gov. While they might not be overly popular with the general public, there’s one group of individuals that turn to psychics in their droves: celebrities. George Clooney, Khloe Kardashian, Brad Pitt and Jenny McCarthy are just a few famous faces who have confessed to seeing a psychic. But just how do celebrities benefit from psychics in a way that others don’t?
Celebrities have many choices to make throughout the course of their careers. Whether it’s deciding whether to move overseas or to take a role in an upcoming movie, celebrities, just like the rest of us, need guidance. While their agents, family and friends will have their own motives for persuading a celeb to take a certain path, psychics don’t, and offer nothing but sound advice and guidance. Brad Pitt was a regular client of Ron Bard before his death in 2016. Bard reportedly helped Pitt to secure roles in some of Hollywood’s biggest movies. Sarah Jessica Parker is another movie star who turned to a psychic for advice regarding her career. She sought out a psychic in the late 1990s to help her decide whether to take part in Sex and the City 2.
While many celebrities openly admit to using psychics, and others, including Khloe Kardashian, have even been filmed for TV with a psychic, plenty of other undisclosed celebs use them due to the anonymity factor. A good psychic will never reveal any details that are shared during a psychic reading, which is reassuring for celebs who are prone to stories about them being sold to the media. They also have the option of using an online psychic. Not only is this beneficial for celebs wanting to remain anonymous, but if they’re facing financial difficulties, they can take advantage of psychics that offer budget-friendly readings. Some psychics even offer free online readings, which can put a celeb’s mind at ease.
Guidance on their personal lives
Relationships among celebrities tend to be short-lived, with research showing that divorce rates among Hollywood celebrities are twice as high as they are among the general population. When it comes to dealing with upcoming relationship woes and marriage breakdowns, psychics are the go-to people for many celebrities. Bard is believed to have predicted Brad Pitt’s split from Angelina Jolie before it happened, and even claimed that the actor was still in love with his wife, Jennifer Anniston. Psychic Tyler Henry, meanwhile, warned Khloe Kardashian in 2017 that Tristian Thompson would cheat on her. The once unlucky-in-love actress Cameron Diaz even turned to a psychic to help her get on the right path romantically after a string of unsuccessful relationships.
Psychics are used for a variety of reasons, but for celebrities, it’s their ability to aid their career and personal lives without judgment that keep them coming back time and time again. And with the celebrity world getting bigger and more stressful, psychics should be prepared to give readings to even more famous faces in the future.
