Rihanna is reportedly enlisting the help of a Buddhist psychic to help foresee the future, as the Barbadian singer becomes increasingly concerned about her fame.
A source is quoted as saying that Rihanna is becoming “really superstitious” and that she “sees signs and omens in normal events.” But the 25-year-old singer isn’t the first celebrity to use a psychic. Here are some other famous faces who’ve turned to fortune tellers down the years.
The entertainment industry’s most eligible bachelor allegedly visited a psychic back in 2009. But George wasn’t trying to speak to a dead relative or find out about his future; instead he wanted to make contact with his beloved pot-bellied pig, Max. Up until his death in 2006, Max had been Clooney’s constant companion for almost 18 years and the star often joked about how he was his longest relationship. "He was as old a pig as the vets had ever seen. He was a big part of my life.” Clooney reportedly said after his pig’s death. “It's strange how animals become a big part of your family. They really become a big issue with you."
In July 2008, “Bad Teacher” star Cameron Diaz was papped exiting West Hollywood’s Psychic Tea Leaf Readings following a meeting with resident soothsayer Mrs. Grace. The 40-year-old actress was reportedly looking for some advice on matters of the heart.
Brad Pitt is “very, very spiritual,” according to psychic Ron Bard, who revealed that he had offered some sage advice to the 49-year-old actor back in 2010. Pitt is reported to have contacted Bard whilst shooting “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” the movie where he met and fell for his co-star Angelina Jolie. Perhaps he was asking the celebrity psychic for relationship advice?
Pitt’s partner Angelina Jolie is also rumoured to use psychics, regularly reaching out to a New Orleans-based medium in order to connect with her mother, who died in 2007. An article in the National Enquirer claimed that the star had kept in touch with the psychic after she had correctly predicted that Jolie would give birth to a boy and a girl. Spooky.
Denise Richards is another actress who has turned to psychics in order to be close to her mom. In 2009, the star told The New York Post, “I've just become friendly with a psychic medium my mother met shortly before she passed on. I wanted to believe Mom was still around. I wanted a reading. I wanted to believe in some form of reincarnation. I need to think in whatever way I can that my mother is still with us.” But the 42-year-old former Mrs Charlie Sheen doesn’t just believe in psychics for herself -- she also uses them for her pets, too. On an episode of her E! reality show “It’s Complicated,” Richards was shown meeting with an animal communicator to help her understand why one of her dogs kept having accidents in the house.
