Angel released from hospital after illusion gone wrong
back to news
Neither reps for illusionist Criss Angel nor his pop star girlfriend have commented since the illusionist’s show was cancelled Friday at the Luxor when a suspended strait-jacket act ended prematurely.
Angel’s “Mindfreak Live!” was stopped early when something appeared to go wrong, according to eyewitness reports on Twitter. He appeared to be unconscious after going into a two-minute spin.
Angel, usually a social media machine, remained silent on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
The last post on the Twitter feed of Angel’s girlfriend, Spanish-born Mexican singer and songwriter Belinda, was a broken-hearted emoji. That appeared, without comment, more than eight hours before his 7 p.m. performance Friday night.
The website TMZ.com reported Angel walked out Spring Valley Hospital before 10 p.m.
Angel and Belinda had posted photos from a ski trip earlier in the week from an unidentified resort.
On March 2, Angel tweeted an image of the two of them walking down a ski resort road with the words “The long & winding road…Till death, I travel only with you mi amor @Belindapop.”
In a Wednesday post showing the two hugging on a ski slope, Angel wrote: “Had such an amazing time with mi amor princesa @belindapop. Now we begin intense creation on a huge surprise for Mexico—are you ready.”
Belinda has been cast in the upcoming “Baywatch” film in the role of Carmen. The film is scheduled for a May 19 release.
