The magic man – part 1. David Copperfield’s alleged victims speak out – podcast | News

The celebrated American magician David Copperfield has been accused by 16 women of engaging in sexual misconduct and inappropriate behaviour, according to a Guardian US investigation.

Lawyers for Copperfield denied all the allegations of misconduct and inappropriate behaviour. They described the allegations against him as “false and entirely without foundation”. They also said there had been “numerous false claims” made against him in the past, but that none had been proved. They noted that he had never been charged with a crime.

The lawyers said inappropriate behaviour against women “is the opposite of everything he stands for and works hard for”. They said Copperfield was a major advocate of women’s rights even before the rise of the #MeToo movement.
