Celebrity magician, David Copperfield, has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women

Celebrity magician David Copperfield is facing allegations of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior brought by 16 women.

As revealed in an investigation conducted by the US bureau of the U.K. press. Guardian, the allegations involved the illusionist reportedly “drugging three women before he had sexual relations with them, which they felt they could not consent to,” according to the report.

Half of the allegations against Copperfield, dating from the late 1980s to 2014, were made by women who insisted they were under 18 at the time of their encounters with him, with some claiming they were as young as 15.

The Guardian US is investigating these claims as part of a series of articles, drawing on interviews with more than 100 individuals and analysis of court and police records.

The investigation highlighted a recurring theme among the allegations: many women claimed Copperfield promised to help them with a career in modeling or the entertainment industry and maintained communication with them and their families.

Copperfield has previously faced allegations of misconduct.

One of the 16 women, Brittney Lewis, went public in 2018 with allegations that he had drugged and sexually assaulted her in 1988 when she was a 17-year-old model.

Faced with the new allegations, Copperfield “denied any wrongdoing” when approached by The Guardian for comment before their investigation was published.

His legal representative insists that Copperfield has “never acted inappropriately with anyone, let alone anyone under age,” dismissing the press’ allegations of inappropriate touching as “not only completely false, but also unreasonable.”

In addition to the allegations, four women alleged that Copperfield groped them or engaged in sexual behavior with them during a live performance on stage, three of whom were teenagers at the time.

A woman reported that Copperfield groped her breasts after inviting her on stage during a January 2014 performance at the MGM Grand casino hotel.

Despite reporting the incident to MGM and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the case was closed due to “insufficient evidence,” according to records.

Copperfield’s legal team also claimed that law enforcement told them at the time that video footage of the performance did not show him touching the “chest area” of any contestant.

Despite requests, neither Copperfield’s legal team, Las Vegas police, nor MGM shared the footage with The Guardian.

MGM, where Copperfield has performed regularly since 2000, declined to comment on the alleged 2014 incident or other allegations against Copperfield.

Copperfield also gained attention for his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, the alleged child sex trafficker, who died in prison in 2019.
