This is Criss Angel, magician, “mindfreak,” and alleged cat thief.
Two years ago, fellow Las Vegas performer Jeff Beacher inherited his parents’ cat, Hamlet, after their deaths. Distraught and living in a hotel, he asked a friend to temporarily care for the cat. Allow Mr. Beacher’s lawyer to explain what happened next:
“Soon thereafter, while still grieving over the recent loss of his father, my client received a phone call from you (Angel) stating, ‘I took your cat. He lives with me now’… This action was against the will of Ms. Madden and Mr. Beacher. I also understand that you made further bizarre allegations, including, ‘The cat no longer likes you’ and ‘The cat and I have become close friends.’ …You and Mr. Beacher have repeatedly argued about the theft of his cat and your continued unwillingness to return it. Perhaps you are not aware of the legal consequences.”
I took your cat. He lives with me now. The cat no longer likes you. The cat and I have become close friends.
That’s the creepiest thing I’ve ever heard.
