California man sues psychic for failing to remove curse placed by ex-girlfriend

Mauro Retrepo is suing "Psychic Love Specialist" Sophia Adams of Palos Verdes Estates, California, for failing to help his marriage by removing a curse placed on him by a witch hired by his ex-girlfriend. According to the lawsuit, Adams read tarot cards and informed Retrepo that he was suffering from "mala suerte" (bad luck) due to the curse.

From NBC Los Angeles:

Adams told Restrepo that unless Adams removed the curse, Restrepo and his family would be "unhappy and in danger," the suit states.

Adams said the bad luck would ruin Restrepo, his children, and his marriage and she demanded $5,100 to remove the curse. Restrepo gave Adams a $1,000 down payment, the suit states.

"Despite (Adams') promises, (she) did not in any way help (Restrepo's) marriage," the suit states.
