As we reported on April 1st, there were stories alleging that David Copperfield was consulting with Michael Jackson to deliver several magic effects in his upcoming tour performance. Chris Kenner told us that there was no truth to these discussions as reported in our story at that time. New stories are circulating which say that Jackson has fired Copperfield and hired Chris Angel after a disagreement over fees. Widely rumored, but not true. Criss Angel's spokesperson Steve Flynn says: "There is no truth to the Michael Jackson rumors whatsoever."
