Or at least that's the idea.
Remember, like two years ago, when a 21-year-old woman claimed she met master illusionist David Copperfield at a show, one thing led to another and she wound up getting raped at Copperfield's $50 million private Bahamian retreat?
No? Well, she said that. An FBI investigation was launched, however he was never charged. Now, the accuser has filed a civil lawsuit against the magician.
Copperfield so adamantly denies the allegation that he not only released a statement defending himself but set up his own innocence-proclaiming website.
David Copperfield went over Niagara Falls in a barrel and made the Statue of Liberty disappear. Surely he can clear his name of minor sexual abuse allegations.
David claims the woman "has a history of lying" and even once told friends she could "take a guy down" if she wanted. He notes that no charges were filed.
"Nothing of the sort ever happened," the magic man insists.
"This lawsuit is extortion for money, plain and simple. Unfortunately, false claims like this only hurt the women who really have been abused and really need our help."
In other words, she's pulling an Andrea McNulty.
