The next David Cooperfield magic show would include his disappearing act!

@Sid LOL you left out the fact of buy her drinks during the dinner dates. Good question though! There is a difference in "Grooming and Pursuing" intentions.

When I met my wife I often took her out to dinner and gave her gifts, sometimes flowers or chocolates. Does this now come under the category of 'grooming'?

Can’t go wrong with chocolates.

Depends on context - was she 12 at the time?

she had first met the magician when she was just underage (15) and over the following years he would call her late at night and send her gifts. when she turned legal (18), the pair had a consensual relationship that lasted four years

the law on "grooming" is quite vague because it's quite difficult to say what it is, and it is not, but if anyone is in any doubt...

this is it!!

At least it is good that people like this are called out and held responsible for their bad behavior. 20 or 30 years ago famous people could get away with a lot more.

The Jimmy Savile of magic. If proven, jail the creep for 40 years minimum.

Now who'd a thunk it of DC? Why did it take so long for the suspected serial molester to be accused of what can often happen when women are drawn to the brightly burning flame of money and fame? Drugging his prey, if true, doesn't sound like grounds for leniency. Will Copperfield go the way of Weinstein or will he be able to work his magic to escape from these serious accusations that will end his career as an illusionist? Even Houdini wouldn't be able to wriggle out of a bad #ME TOO rap that is able to pull the receipts out of a hat.

Women who take no responsibility for their own actions.

Seriuosly..

Not a surprise, not a surprise..

It is fashionable for the bad behavior of some "famous" to come to light...
