Cameron Diaz has denied she caused the break-up of magician
Criss Angel's marriage. The Mindfreak star's estranged wife Joanne
Sarantakos cited his alleged affair with the 'Shrek the Third'
actress as her reason for divorcing Angel. But Diaz's
representative Brad Cafarelli said yesterday : "When Cameron met
Criss Angel in May of this year, he had been separated from his
wife for over a year and she had already filed a petition to
divorce him in 2006. "Cameron and Criss went on only four dates
over a month ago and have no current relationship. "These are
meaningless, attention-seeking attempts to unfairly and
unnecessarily exploit Cameron's celebrity by trying to involve her
in matters she has nothing to do with."
Sarantakos' lawyer Dominic Barbara told the Nassau County court
on Friday: "We're naming Cameron Diaz as his lover. We will
subpoena her as soon as she comes back to New York."
Sarantakos, 37, is also accusing Angel, her husband of five
years, of mental cruelty and abandonment. Diaz and the 39-year-old
magician - real name Christopher Sarantakos - met at the VH1 Rock
Honours party in Las Vegas. The 34-year-old actress and Criss
enjoyed several dates together during her stay. On June 4 Angel
dedicated a magic stunt in New York to the actress. After escaping
from a concrete block suspended above Times Square, Angel
announced, "I'd like to dedicate this to my girl Trouble, a.k.a
Cameron. I love you, baby".
