Magician David Blaine accused of rape by former model, report says

Magician David Blaine is being investigated by police after a former model accused him of raping her.

The Daily Beast reported that the model claims Mr Blaine raped her in Chelsea during the summer of 2004, shortly after her 21st birthday.

'Officers from the Met's Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are investigating an allegation of rape, ' Scotland Yard said in a statement to The Daily Beast. While Scotland Yard has chose to open an investigation, there have been no arrests at this stage and they have requested that Blaine travel to the United Kingdom for an "interview under caution". Did I have sex with David Blaine?

"My client vehemently denies that he sexually assaulted any woman", he said.

Blaine's lawyer told the Daily Beast that the magician had last seen Price on the streets of NY five years ago, and stated Prince approached Blaine and invited him to her workplace, the Gagosian Gallery.

Attorneys for Blaine vehemently denied all allegations levelled against the 44-year-old magician, with lead attorney Marty Singer asserting Blaine's innocence.

She said he texted her the following evening, inviting her to meet him for drinks at a friend's house. "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". "If, in fact, there is any police investigation, my client will fully co-operate because he has nothing to hide". She can not remember what he exactly told her, but she recalled that he was giving her a lot of attention.

Prince initially spoke with police nearly a full year before Weinstein's story broke.

The next day, Blaine invited her to a private residence where she details odd behavior from the star followed by reportedly getting drugged, assaulted and waking up nude with Blaine.

This accusation has coincidentally come about at the same time of the Harvey Weinstein allegations, along with his brother, Bob, who has since been accused of sexual harassment.
