FBI raided his warehouse in Las Vegas.
Heard this on the radio this morning. He allegedly had 2M cash in his warehouse.
Bet he wishes he could disappear now!
WOW I would love to touch that much money.
I'm sure he'll be able to magician his way out of this. Didn't Houdini break out of jail? Copperfield can, too, I'm willing to bet. Charles Dickens must be rolling in his grave.
Paper reports "investigating him for sexual misconduct" outside the USA.
$2 million recovered from a safe on the property.
Just read the Foxnews report. Wow, I thought he was in Thailand, if you get my drift.
I heard this supposedly happened in the Bahamas, apparently he owns a small island there. Of course his attorney is denying any misconduct (thought he wouldn't???) and blaming the accusations are because of his celebrity. This will be interesting to see how it unfolds.
Wow, SHADY and scary. There's always the risk of people alleging crazy things to extort or otherwise take advantage of fame and celebrity, but if the allegations are true I hope the courts treat him the same as any other average Joe.
Yikes!! What the heck was he doing with 2 mil just laying around?? Something is def fishy here.
Well, he's currently touring Asia. Scheduled to perform in Jakarta Indonesia next week. Promising a lot of new illusions...
The timing of this raid and the tour is rather convenient, no?
Maybe he sleeps on those 2M.
He's a strange ranger but this is even stranger. Date "rape' she reported few days after it happened, no tests done. He said she said - ohhh & he made $57 million last year.
His 'tricks" - he uses a body double. I knew a guy he started using in the late 90's.
Copperfield Cancels Shows, Feds to Bring Him In?

Reports are swirling magician David Copperfield has cancelled his upcoming shows in Indonesia because he will be brought in for questioning on Monday by the FBI. Not true, TMZ has confirmed.
Copperfield's attorney, David Chesnoff, tells TMZ no law enforcement interviews have been scheduled with the illusionist -- Monday, or otherwise.
As for his trip to Indonesia, we've learned that was cancelled because the organization which had asked him to perform was not fulfilling its contractual obligations. David is currently in the US.
Chesnoff tells us that "Mr. Copperfield remains anxious to put this matter behind him," adding the allegations by the as yet unidentified woman are false.
