Anyone out there sceptical of psychic mediums clearly hasn’t met Tyler Henry.
The 23-year-old is the most sought-after clairvoyant in Tinseltown and stars in the TV series Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry, where he helps celebrities connect with both the living and the dead.
Modern Family‘s , The Big Bang Theory‘s , actress , and Aussie rapper are among the many stars who’ve sat for readings with Henry. He even often foretells their future.
In fact, the this week was predicted by Henry two years ago.
Back in 2017, Kardashian and her sister, , appeared on Henry’s show and his intuition told him that “someone tries to get with one sister and then tries to get with the other.” Fast forward two years and here we are — Jenner’s best friend . Believe in his power now?
“I think with any position that comes with a public figure there is some criticism,” Henry told 9Honey Celebrity from LA while promoting Season 4 of Hollywood Medium. “With my case, I really focus on the information that’s really specific and personal that you can’t research and Google. And a lot of these clients who live these experiences validate the information that does come through — specifics that have never been discussed publicly. That’s really the end game.”
One celebrity who doesn’t doubt Henry’s abilities is . The Aussie actress sat down for a reading with him in the first episode of Season 4, which — and it as so uplifting, emotional and accurate that Wilson was brought to tears.
“That one was fascinating because when you think of Rebel Wilson you think funnygirl, but you’ll be very surprised with her in the reading,” said Henry. “It was very emotional. I actually was able to intuit a very specific medical issue that her mum was having from 7000 miles away [in Australia]. So I had her get her mother on the phone during the reading and Rebel asked her about it, and it ended up being true. She actually hadn’t yet told Rebel about this medical incident she just had.”
It turned out, Wilson’s mother had a gallbladder attack the night before and had yet to tell her daughter. This information was in no way something Henry would have known. In fact, the show’s producers do not tell the medium which celebrity he will be reading until he pulls up to their house on the day.
A fun fact about Henry? He never even drives to his readings. For starters, he’s never had a driver’s licence, and plus readings are so emotionally taxing, he shouldn’t operate a motor vehicle. So his mother plays chauffeur and has happily done so for the last four seasons.
“She’s still driving me this season. I still don’t have a driver’s licence!” he laughed. “When I’m going to the readings, I get very strong visions, very strong impressions. So for the sake of the highways of the world, I’ve decided to let mum drive.”
It’s probably for the best too. This season, Henry — who discovered he has this incredible gift at just 10 years old — underwent a brain scan to see what really goes on inside his head when he’s in that zone. And the results were frightening.
“It really presented a lot more questions than answers. And going into it, I didn’t really know what to expect,” he told 9Honey Celebrity of the procedure carried out under the eye of TV doctor Dr Drew Pinsky.
“When they were watching the monitor in the back as I was doing my readings, they basically saw that my brain went into a state that shouldn’t have allowed for consciousness,” Henry explained. “I shouldn’t have been able to be speaking because my brain was actually looking like it was asleep. Doctors were completely baffled and, to this day, they are still trying to figure it out.”
But finding a medical reasoning behind his incredible ability is not a priority for Henry. He is grateful for his gift regardless and has embraced it wholeheartedly.
“It’s such an integral part of who I am and what I represent and what I strive to do,” he said. “For me, imagining a life without having this ability is really hard, so I’m very thankful for it. It’s sort of synonymous with my life.”
