Last week we learned the FBI was investigating illusionist David Copperfield after a Seattle woman reported the magician raped her in the Bahamas. Now we learn all his shows are just places where he
hunts his next prey uses to pick-up women.
Sources now tell TMZ Copperfield designed part of his show around “a system for picking up women.” During his show, David goes into the audience and chooses women to come on stage. We’re told that if David likes a girl, he’ll use code words with assistants like “mama” and “secrecy.” The assistants mark the women on a map of the inside of the Hollywood Theater at MGM Grand. After the show, the women are brought backstage — and that’s where the profiling begins.
The women are told that David may use them in his show when he comes to their hometown. They are then photographed with a digital camera, asked questions like, “What is your favorite men’s cologne?” and “Where do you like to vacation?” We’re told one of those vacation spots mentioned by staff is the Bahamas, where the accuser claims she was assaulted. Copperfield owns a cluster of islands in the Bahamas — which he bought for $50 million.
Because this is David and everything he does is a big show, why not make meeting women a big production. In this production of love, David first mesmerize the ladies with some illusion, next he seduces them with a visit backstage, and concludes with a visit at their vacation spot in bed. What ever happen to the simple days of asking a girl out.
