Criss Angel sued for divorce
According to the New York Post, Criss Angel's wife, Joanne Sarantakos (Sarantakos is Angel's actual surname), is suing her husband for divorce, claiming that he kept their marriage a secret to help his career and make him more appealing to fans.
Their marriage was enough of a secret that I had no idea he was even married, though it's not as if I spend every waking moment keeping up with Angel's personal life. Still, whenever a girl was by Criss' side on Mindfreak, she was always just credited as "Criss' girl" as far as I remember.
In addition, Cameron Diaz is being named as Angel's lover according to Sarantakos' lawyers, and will be subpoenaed. The Post also reports that Angel did not support his wife, despite making millions from his work.
The rest of the Post article doesn't exactly paint Angel in the most flattering light, describing him as self-centered and consumed by the "Criss Angel" character he created. However, it's the Post, so I wouldn't expect a piece full of happiness and sunshine.
Personally, I'm not at all shocked that Angel wanted to keep the marriage a secret, and I'm sure he's not the only famous person to craft a public image in such a manner. Perhaps in this "celebreality" age that's not as easy to do anymore, though.
