Magician David Copperfield second most shocking name in Epstein docs with claims he knew about recruitment of girls


The name of magician David Copperfield popped up concerning deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in court documents unsealed Wednesday.

The now-67-year-old entertainer was said to have allegedly had dinner with the late sex offender and some of his victims, according to a trove of documents released after a judge’s order concerning a since-settled lawsuit by an Epstein victim against his accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell.

One of the documents was the May 2016 deposition of Johanna Sjoberg, an accuser of Epstein, who said she had met Copperfield.

“Someone called me from the house and said that he would be there, and if I wanted to come have dinner, then I could meet him,” Sjoberg said, Daily Mail reported. “So when I arrived at the house, he wasn’t there yet … and there was another girl there which I had never met and never seen. She seemed young.”

“I asked her what school she went to, kind of prodding to see if she went to one of the area colleges, and I did not recognize the name of the school,” Sjoberg continued. “So I thought she could be younger than college age, but I had to assume for my own sanity that she was a daughter of one of his friends.”

According to her testimony, he said he was a friend of Epstein’s and “did some magic tricks” at dinner.

“Sjoberg said Copperfield, who was previously accused of sexually assaulting a teen model in 1988, questioned her whether she ‘was aware that girls were getting paid to find other girls,’ the court document read,” Fox News reported.

“Did he tell you any of the specifics of that?” the attorney had asked in the deposition.

“No,” Sjoberg replied, according to the unsealed document.

“Copperfield has been a visitor to Epstein’s island, Little St James, since at least 1994, four years before the disgraced financier even purchased it from venture capitalist Arch Cummin for $8 million,” Daily Mail reported. “In March of that year, Copperfield told Esquire Magazine that he proposed to supermodel Claudia Schiffer during a vacation. The illusionist claimed that he rented out the entire island for the proposal. The couple broke up in 1999 without tying the knot citing their work schedules.”

Copperfield’s name in the trove of released documents seemed to surprise many on sociak media:
