London police are reportedly asking magician David Blaine to fly to England as they investigate an alleged rape from 13 years ago.
Natasha Prince, an English model, claims Blaine raped her in 2004, The Daily Beast reports.
Scotland Yard released a statement regarding the allegations, 'The allegation was reported to police on 17 November 2016 by a woman who alleged she was raped at an address in Chelsea in June or July 2004 when she was aged 21. There have been no arrests at this stage and enquiries continue.'
Blaine’s attorney Marty Singer denied the allegations, telling the outlet, 'My client vehemently denies that he raped or sexually assaulted any woman, ever, and he specifically denies raping a woman in 2004,' the statement said. 'If, in fact, there is any police investigation, my client will fully cooperate because he has nothing to hide.'
Blaine is known for his death-defying stunts; his most recent project, the 2016 TV special Beyond Magic, featured a trick in which he fired a bullet into his mouth.
Prince, 32, told The Daily Beast that she met Blaine at a club, and he invited her to his friend’s mansion for drinks the next day, and she alleges that he led her into the bedroom.
'He spun around quite quickly and said, ‘Kiss me.’ I did kiss him. And 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,' she said. '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 she ran into him on three other occasions over the years and quit modeling at 24 due to anxiety stemming from the alleged assault.
The investigation remains ongoing.
