Skeptics, beware: Aiden Chase knows what you’re thinking, and it’s not just because he’s psychic.
The new manager for Heidi Montag accepts and understands that not everybody’s onboard with his profession – he’s called a “healer and intuitive” – and he’s okay with that. In fact, he’s in the okay business. He helps people feel better about themselves and guide their futures – futures, he says, he can often see (unless sports bets are on the line). He also says he has the ability to communicate with spirits, including dead celebrities.
From PEOPLE’s chat with the Malibu-based man who’ll now be overseeing Montag’s career instead of her husband Spencer Pratt, here are six things you need to know about Aiden Chase:
1. He’s a Recent Part of Montag’s Life:
“One of my clients referred me to Spencer and Heidi. I went up to their house, just after Heidi’s surgery, doing healing work, energy clearing, helping put their future paths on the map. For about a month, Heidi has been asking me: ‘Be my manager.’ When I really thought about it, really meditated, I realized I have been doing the job anyway. They had been consulting with me, [asking]: ‘What do you think about this?’ It had been working for them.”
