Psychic Sophia Adams never saw this coming.
When Mauro Restrepo arrived for his session at the psychic’s business, she read his tarot cards and told him he had “mala suerte,” or “bad luck,” the suit states.
She also allegedly warned Restrepo he and his family would be “unhappy and in danger” unless the curse was lifted.
According to the lawsuit brought in Torrance Superior Court, Restrepo found the website of Sophia Adams while searching for psychics online last month. Adams has licenses for psychic services and related businesses issued by the city of Gardena and runs Psychic Love Specialist by Sophia out of her leased Palos Verdes Estates home.
Restrepo says he then began communicating with Adams over text messages and was eventually invited to her place of business for a tarot reading. During that session, Adams allegedly told Restrepo had a curse which was placed on him “by a witch hired by his ex-girlfriend.” Restrepo claims the psychic told him she could save his family and marriage by removing the curse but would need to be paid $5,100. The plaintiff said he gave Adams a $1,000 down payment, but didn’t see any improvements in his personal life.
“Despite Adams’ promises, she did not in any way help Restrepo’s marriage,” the suit states.
He claims he continued to experience sleepless nights, anxiety, and general anguish. Restrepo, who is seeking $25,000 in damages, has accused the clairvoyant of negligence, civil conspiracy, as well as intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress. The lawsuit also names Adam’s business Psychic Love Specialist by Sophia, as a defendant, along with her husband, George R. Adams; her daughter, Tiffany Winston; and the Adams’ landlords, Christ and Polly Koutroumbis.
