Israeli magician Uri Geller, famous for his mind bending tricks on spoons was a cold war CIA operative who used his talents to "wipe secret Soviet floppy disks" and convince an unnamed Soviet leader to help the US, the British Sun newspaper reported on Sunday.

Geller, who was a close confidant of Michael Jackson, said that the CIA asked him to stop a pig's heart using telepathy but he refused because he was worried that he would be asked to do the same on a human, The Sun reported. The psychic said he only took on "positive missions" for his Cold War enablers, saying no to "dark things," according to the report.

A documentary about the Israeli telepathist's secret agent days,The Secret Life of Uri Geller- Psychic Spy? by film-maker Vikram Jayanti, was premiered at the Doc/Fest in Sheffield, England last week. The Sun quoted the director Jayanti in its report and brought to light other intriguing details from the film about Geller's secret role.

Jayanti told The Sun that when former president Jimmy Carter was elected in 1977, "One of the first things he did was to have Uri Geller give him a four-hour briefing on the Soviet psychic threat."

“America didn’t want a psychic gap and Uri was the go-to guy,” Jayanti said.
