A California man is suing Sophia Adams, a self-proclaimed "psychic love specialist" and "PhD Life Coach," after she allegedly promised to remove a curse on his marriage. Mauro Restrepo says he was in the midst of some bad luck when he performed a Google search for psychics and came across Adams' website. Adams allegedly read his tarot cards, then told him that an ex-girlfriend had hired a witch to put a curse on his marriage - a curse she'd happily remove for $5,100! Restrepo, who believed Adams to be legit, claims to have paid a $1,000 deposit but now says she "did not in any way help" his marriage and that he continued to suffer from anxiety, anguish, and a lack of sleep. He's now seeking $25,000 in damages for alleged fraud, negligence, civil conspiracy, and the infliction of emotional distress. The suit also names Adams' husband, daughter, and landlords, claiming they knew she was taking advantage of clients in her rented home and didn't intervene. (KNBC)
