David Copperfield, the superstar magician who routinely sells out his eponymous theater at MGM Grand, this week was accused of sexually assaulting a teen model 30 years ago.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Brittney Lewis said Copperfield assaulted her in 1988, when she was 17.
Copperfield has run for cover.
Lewis claims that soon after the two met at the “Look of the Year” modeling contest in Atami, Japan, Copperfield, then 32, invited her to one of his shows in California. After the performance, Lewis told the website she saw Copperfield pour something into her drink and that she then blacked out. After that, she said, she remembers only flashes that culminated with her being sexually assaulted by the famed illusionist.
In 2007, Copperfield faced sexual assault allegations from then-Miss Washington USA contestant Lacey L. Carroll in Seattle.
