He made the Statue of Liberty disappear. You think a lawsuit stands a chance?
The woman who accused star illusionist David Copperfield of luring her to his island in the Bahamas in 2007 with career opportunities and then forcing her to have sex once she arrived has dropped her federal complaint.
Copperfield's camp always said he was a mere victim of "attempted extortion."
"It has never been about money," plaintiff Lacey Carroll (she voluntarily identified herself) said in a statement released by her attorneys Tuesday.
"I just wanted him held accountable for what he did."
POOF: David Copperfield has beaten the rap.
The FBI investigated the woman's rape allegations against Copperfield for nearly two years, at one point searching his warehouse in Las Vegas for evidence.
They ended their probe in January without filing charges.
"Carroll's lawsuit was nothing more than a pathetic attempt to extort Mr. Copperfield for money with malicious and false allegations," the magician's attorney, Angelo Calfo, said in a statement. "There was no settlement."
"Mr. Copperfield would not and did not pay Carroll a dime."
Calfo also said that Copperfield is cooperating with the FBI "to have Carroll prosecuted for having wasted taxpayer dollars." We wouldn't bet against David ... he can just take her money if he wants with no trace anyway.
