David Copperfield's 'Disappearing Thai Hooker' Illusion Canceled In Wake Of FBI Investigation

Until only recently, the greatest mystery surrounding David Copperfield was how he successfully managed to put Claudia Schiffer under a magician-lusting trance for six years. But with recently surfaced accusations of rape and an FBI raid in which they seized computer equipment and nearly $2 million in cash, legitimate questions have begun to arise over whether there's something far more sinister afoot here than a mere penchant for blousy clothing and a suspected Just For Men addiction. In the wake of the controversy, meanwhile, Copperfield's upcoming Southeast Asian tour has been canceled:

"His management sent an e-mail to organizers Sunday to inform that his shows will be postponed indefinitely," Kittiyong Achawaphong of RSi Dream Entertainment said Monday.

The company organized the 51-year-old magician's shows in Thailand.

Copperfield was also scheduled to perform in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore in the coming weeks. The cancellations came after FBI agents conducted searches in Las Vegas last week following allegations that Copperfield "forced himself" on an unidentified woman.

Copperfield's lawyer, David Chesnoff, has said the allegations "are false because David Copperfield has never forced himself on anyone."

To support his claims, Chesnoff rattled off Copperfield's 2006 attendance numbers, pointing out that not a single audience member showed up to An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion against their will, and that the only cries of "No!" ever lodged against the master illusionist came during their virtual disbelief at his uncanny levitation tricks and accompanying pyrotechnics.
