Magician David Copperfield, now 67, faces serious allegations from 16 women, who claim to have been victims of sexual misconduct in alleged incidents spanning more than 30 years.

These disturbing stories were revealed by The Guardian.

Some of the complainants even claim to have been drugged, and more than half of the alleged victims say they were teenagers at the time of the alleged abuse.

The British newspaper is said to have scrutinized these allegations, using interviews with over a hundred people, as well as court and police records.

David Copperfield has faced several accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior in the past. One notable case involved a former Miss Washington USA, Lacey Carroll, who in 2007 accused Copperfield of sexually assaulting her on his private island in the Bahamas. The FBI investigated, but no charges were brought due to a lack of evidence and inconsistencies in Carroll‘s statements.

In 2018, Copperfield was again accused of inappropriate sexual behavior, but this time by a former model, Brittney Lewis, who claimed he drugged and assaulted her in 1988. At the time, she was just 17. Copperfield denied the accusations.

Copperfield ‘s spokesman responded to the new accusations by saying that the magician would consider his legal options. He also stressed the importance of differentiating between cases of real abuse and those he deems unfounded.

These recurring controversies have already tarnished Copperfield ‘s reputation in recent years.
