Magician David Blaine isn’t denying he had sexual contact with a former model accusing him of rape, but he claims it was completely consensual.
Sources close to Blaine tell The Blast he is adamant he did not rape Natasha Prince at a private residence in London back in 2004.
Prince, a former model, told The Daily Beast she was raped after having drinks with the magician. She claims she blacked out, and when she woke up she was naked and felt “stoned.”
We’re told Blaine says the allegations are “completely false,” and that the incident with Prince was completely consensual.
Blaine does not take the allegations lightly; we’re told one of the magician’s very close family members was previously raped, and it affected him so deeply he could not fathom putting someone else through the type of pain he experienced.
Blaine has also spoken with friends about the impact of the allegations especially considering he has a six-year-old daughter.
Scotland Yard is investigating the allegations, and has reportedly asked the magician to come to the UK for an interview.
