Q: Can you pray behind an Imam or someone who leads you in Prayer who is involved in Fetish or great Shirk like fortune telling or claiming to know the unseen?
A: If the Imaam practises clear shirk, then he comes out of the fold of Islam. His namaaz is not valid.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
