Criss Angel is on the verge of getting sued for allegedly stealing the cat of Vegas showman Jeff Beacher, according to Page Six:
Beacher’s lawyer, Robert Reynolds, wrote to Angel: “After both of Mr. Beacher’s parents passed away due to cancer [two years ago], his family’s cat (“Hamlet”) was bequeathed to him by will. At the time, Mr. Beacher was residing at the Hard Rock Hotel [in Las Vegas]. Accordingly, he allowed his friend Jennifer Madden to temporarily care for the cat until he moved out of the hotel.
“Soon thereafter, while still grieving over the recent loss of his father, my client received a phone call from you stating, ‘I took your cat. He lives with me now’ . . . This action was against the will of Ms. Madden and Mr. Beacher. I also understand that you made further bizarre allegations, including, ‘The cat no longer likes you’ and ‘The cat and I have become close friends.’ “
This is usually never the case, but I absolutely, 100% believe this story. There’s no doubt in my mind that Criss Angel steals animals then calls up their owners to say “Hey, your pet loves me now.” Talk about the douchiest thing anyone could do which is what makes it so believable. In fact, I’m surprised this didn’t end with pics of Criss using his necklace to handcuff kittens. You’d think that’d be the next logical step.
