A Californian man is suing a psychic, who he said "promised" to remove a curse on his marriage which had been administered by a witch hired by his ex-girlfriend.

Mauro Restrepo said his jilted ex had the witch curse his family, meaning they would be "unhappy and in danger".

He then contacted a psychic on Google, who he paid $5,100 (€4,100), to exorcise the curse.

He is now seeking $25,000 (€21,700) in damages from Sophia Adams, claiming the psychic promised to remove the spell, and suing on the grounds of negligence, civil conspiracy and the negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Restrepo claims Adams, who described herself as a 'psychic love specialist', said she could remove the curse after he came to believe it was affecting his marriage and his wellbeing.

He claims Adams told him he needed to have the curse removed altogether or it would ruin his marriage and his children.

He said that after paying Adams an initial £1,000 she failed to help his relationship with his wife, after the psychic allegedly told Restrepo he had "mala suerte" placed on him, meaning 'bad luck'.

He also claims he was subjected to sleepless nights and anxiety while the curse remained in place.

Sophia Adams website states she is a 'Ph.D Life Coach'.

Restrepo said this wording had made him "more confident that he was speaking with a professional that could help him".
