David Copperfield Used Magic To Find His Victims?
After having been investigated for allegedly forcing women, it has been reported that David Copperfield has been picking up ladies during his live shows, and gathering personal information from them.
Last week, the magician’s home was raided by the FBI and his digital camera equipment and computer hard-drive were taken away.
Now a source has told TMZ that Copperfield has designed part of his show around “a system for picking up women.” During the show, he will go into the audience to find a woman to take up on stage. If he likes the girl he will use a code word like “mama” or “secrecy” so that assistants backstage can map where the lady is sitting and bring her backstage after the show.
This is where the profiling begins. The ladies are told that he may use them in his show when he comes to their town, and once they have been photographed with his digital camera, David asks them questions such as “What is your favorite men’s cologne?” and “Where do you like to vacation?”
One of the vaction spots mentioned by staff is the Bahamas – where the lady accusing Copperfield claims she was assaulted. Copperfield owns a small number of islands in the Bahamas which were bought for $50 million. It is for this reason that the FBI raided Copperfield’s equipment.
When questioned about the allegations, Copperfield’s attorney re-issued his earlier statement: “It is important these allegations be put into perspective. An unidentified woman has made serious allegations against David Copperfield. Although authorities have not revealed her identity to us, we know these allegations are false because David Copperfield has never forced himself on anyone.”
