British celebrity and model Megan Barton Hanson will enlist the help of world-famous self-proclaimed psychic Uri Geller to fight smoking and will visit Israel for that purpose, the Sun
reported on Wednesday.
She will be flying with her personal trainer Matt Fiddes, who was a body-guard to the late American pop-star Michael Jackson for nearly a decade.
Jackson and Geller were reported to be close friends, which is how Fiddes came to know the Israeli magician and suggest him to Hanson.
Starring on the reality show Love Island, Hanson met ice-skater Wes Nelson, the two separated in January, leading Hanson to confess to feeling lonely and dealing with mental pain.
Geller, who claims to have psychic powers, was slammed by magician and skeptic James Randi in a 1982 book called The Truth about Uri Geller in which he wrote how Geller performs his feats.
Geller repeatedly sued both Randi and his publishers but was not successful.
