The Personal Side of David Copperfield
Over the years, David Copperfield’s offstage persona has grown to be just as mysterious as his on-stage one. His 6 year engagement to model Claudia Schiffer was shrouded in controversy and his current with Chloe Gosselin a complete mystery. Even the birth of their daughter was kept under the magician’s cloak until the child was over a year old.
He is the owner of a cluster of islands in the Bahamas -which serve as his private resort- and a private museum that caters to the magical world. There is not much he hasn’t accomplished over the span of his career, and there is little doubt that he still has a number of tricks hiding in his sleeves.
Don’t miss the chance to see the legend live on-stage. You may have seen him walk through walls on TV, but that is nothing compared to what he can do when standing on a stage at the MGM Grand.
