    David Copperfield cancels S-E Asia shows following sex allegations

    The Straits Times

    BANGKOK - AMERICAN magician David Copperfield has cancelled his upcoming shows in Southeast Asia following allegations of sexual misconduct in the United States, a Thai organiser said on Monday.

    'His management sent an e-mail to organisers Sunday to inform that his shows will be postponed indefinitely,' said Ms Kittiyong Achawaphong, a public relations official of RSi Dream Entertainment, which organised his shows in Thailand.

    Copperfield was scheduled to perform in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand in coming weeks. The cancellations come days after FBI agents searched his warehouse and a casino hotel in Las Vegas, where the magician regularly performs, following charges that he 'forced himself' on an unidentified woman.

    Details about the allegations have not been revealed but Copperfield's lawyer, Mr David Chesnoff, has said 'we know these allegations are false because David Copperfield has never forced himself on anyone.'

    Promoters of some of the Asian shows are trying to negotiate with Copperfield's management to reschedule the performances or recoup some of the losses incurred from the cancellations.

    'We are told by Copperfield management that David's show had been canceled by the artist,' said Mr Peter Basuki, whose company was organising the Jakarta show. He said they would like to file a complaint with Copperfield management, but did not elaborate.

    'They said they would like to find any other available time to perform in Jakarta,' Mr Basuki said. 'With this cancellation, we have lost more than US$1 million (S$1.5 million) for advertising and other preparations. Business is business. We want to make a profit. But this is making us lose money.'-- AP

    wondering why does he need to force himself on the woman

    he can easily use his magic and make the woman force herself onto him

    Think he will use magic to make all the allegations disappear. Make the Withnesses, Prosecution disappear.

    He can make everything disappear but SEX he can't.
    Think of concepts and work towards it.

    I am surprise he did. For the longest time he was thought to be gay and his marriage to Claudia the supermodel was just farce. To protect his female market for his show. I am just wondering if this was all made up or some silly women trying to make a buck. That's American for you. His career in any case has been on the wane when you compare him to more younger and more daring magic acts coming out of the US in the last decade.
