Police in London are investigating magician David Blaine, after a model accused him of raping her in London. Police have also asked Blaine to come to Britain to be interviewed.
Natasha Prince claims Blaine raped her at a private home in the summer of 2004, just months after her 21st birthday. Police say the allegation was initially reported in November of last year. Natasha said she first met Blaine at a nightclub, and then texted her the next day, inviting her to his friends’ place for drinks. She says that he sent a car for her, and when she arrived, he made her a drink and offered to show her something in a bedroom. Once in the room, he kissed her.
She said, “Then he said, ‘Finish your drink’ and took the glass from me and put it on the table, and that’s really the last thing I remember. At some point, I was on the bed, face-forward, and he was behind me. I think it woke me up a little bit, because I’d never had that (anal sex) done to me before. I remember moving around a lot. I was limp, and I was very floaty; I was in and out of a deep sleep.”
She said the next morning, she asked herself, “What did I do last night? Did I have sex with David Blaine? But I didn’t want to…’ I felt hazy, completely out of it...”
She said that she now suffers from anxiety, a fear of men, low self-esteem, and bouts of anger. She also said that she became self-destructive and stopped eating. Prince now works as an art dealer and abruptly quit modeling at 24, after gracing 25 magazine covers.
Blaine’s attorney, Marty Singer, denied all of the allegations. He said, “My client vehemently denies that he raped or sexually assaulted any woman, ever, and he specifically denies raping a woman in 2004. If, in fact, there is any police investigation, my client will fully cooperate because he has nothing to hide.”
