The rise of fortune teller divorces! Wealthy husbands are paying ‘crystal healers’ to tell their wives of their plans to split in order to avoid ‘scenes, distress and guilt’, family lawyers report

  • Wealthy men are paying ‘crystal healers’ to tell their wives about plans to divorce
  • ‘Healers’ tell women that there’s a ‘new romance’ or ‘spiritual path’ on the horizon
  • Allows men to avoid the ‘scenes, distress and guilt’ that comes with the news 
  • High-end witches reportedly charge £5,000 a month to be ‘on call’ 

Wealthy husbands who want a divorce are hiring fortune tellers to ‘gently’ break the news to their wives under the guise of a spiritual reading, London-based family lawyers have revealed. 

‘Crystal healers’ are paid to tell married women that a ‘new spiritual path’, ‘new romance’ or a journey of personal discovery are on the horizon as way to broach the subject of their separation, jewellery expert Carol Woolton wrote in Air Mail. 

One woman told how her hedge fund manager husband brought a crystal healer into their home in Knightsbridge, central London, shortly after the birth of their first child.

The first time the topic of divorce came up was during the conversation in which she was told by the healer: ‘I can see you’re going to have another great romance soon in your life.’

The trend is becoming increasingly common among high net-worth couples, Woolton noted.

‘Arranged divorces in which men—and it’s almost always men—hire a New Age go-between to relay the bad news… are happening more and more in London, several people at a leading legal firm tell me.’

It not only ‘spares [husbands] the scenes, distress and guilt’ but also allows them to continue to appear like a ‘decent human being’ while ‘dumping their wives’. 

According to Woolton, who is the contributing jewellery director for British Vogue and author of The New Stone Age, the ‘witches’ who work with wealthy clients charge £5,000-a-month to be ‘on the end of a phone’ and up to £20,000 to have a crystal ‘temple’ built inside an office. 

Businessmen and women can choose to have crystals incorporated into their works space in order to help achieve a goal or strengthen a particular emotion, its proponents claim.

Once dismissed as New Age nonsense (or simply overpriced tat), in today’s era of wellness crystals have nudged into the acceptable mainstream. 

Celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian have given crystals a glossy A-list appeal, sharing how they’ve boosted their health, happiness and success.

The trend has filtered down to the British high street, where crystals are available at the likes of Accessorize and John Lewis. 

Google searches for ‘crystal healing’ in the UK have more than doubled in five years to 2019.

Explaining how crystal healing works, Californian healer Heather Askinosie told You Magazine: ‘Crystals are a tool; they are something we can utilise – like meditation – to tap into ourselves and get to know ourselves better.

‘They help us take action in our lives. I’m not saying pray to a crystal; it’s not a religion. Crystals are a form of energetic medicine we can use to make our lives better.’
