David Copperfield: Magician accused of sexual misconduct

Magician David Copperfield has been accused of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior by sixteen women.

Some of the alleged crimes took place when the women were under 18 years old. This was reported by The Guardian newspaper, external.

The allegations date from the late 1980s to 2014.

A representative for Copperfield told BBC News that the allegations were “false and abusive” and “the exact opposite of who David is”.

According to the Guardian, three of the women claim the magician drugged them before having sex with them. They said they felt unable to consent.

In four cases, women alleged that the magician groped them or made them touch him in a sexual manner during live performances on stage.

One woman said she met Copperfield in 1991, when she was 15, and that he kept in touch with her through phone calls.

When she was 18, she says they had consensual sex, but the woman told the Guardian she believes she was groomed.

Copperfield's lawyers acknowledged the relationship with the newspaper, but denied that there was any grooming.

In a separate statement to the BBC, his lawyers said: 'Anyone who knows David Copperfield will tell you that these recent allegations from one newspaper are the exact opposite of who David is.

'David even has a reputation for risking his career to help protect women from powerful predators.

“Most of these historical accusations have been made before, and they are all as false now as they were then. David asked for the “evidence” on which these false accusations claim to be based, but none has been provided.

“In contrast, whenever U.S. law enforcement agencies have investigated such cases, they have been thoroughly investigated and found to simply have no basis to respond.

“The Guardian's characterization is not who David is, and he continues to support anyone who has experienced any form of abuse or discrimination. The movement must succeed, but the false accusations must stop before it can flourish. David will discuss the position with his legal department. team and will take appropriate action regarding these false and gross allegations.”

Copperfield has previously been accused of inappropriate behavior and denied historical allegations of sexual misconduct in 2018.

“For years I lived with news stories about me being accused of fabricated, heinous acts, few of which told the story of the accuser's arrest and my innocence,” he wrote on X/Twitter at the time.

Copperfield is one of America's best-known magicians. He has won 21 Emmy Awards and holds 11 Guinness World Records.
