He didn’t publicly admit to being married to Benson, or even having a son, until his little boy was diagnosed with cancer in 2015.
At the time, Angel canceled his Vegas magic act and rushed to Australia to be by his son’s side, but fans were blindsided by the bombshell that he had a secret family.
According to , Criss later slammed his ex-fiancée on Twitter, writing that he spent “over 0K” on Sandra’s “boob and nose job,” as well as a new BMW, her dad’s bail, her mom’s mortgage, vacations and more. “This was starting to feel all too familiar…Hef was a master of manipulation and knew how to cripple a girl’s self-esteem.
But now another blonde beauty, Joanne Sarantakos, has gone to court in Long Island, New York, claiming she has been married to him for five years.
He hid their relationship 'a secret,' she charged, because he was worried it might diminish his sex appeal to female fans of his TV show, Mindfreak.
According to , Angel and Benson divorced in October 2015 after a one-year marriage.
In the past, Criss Angel has been secretive about his personal life.
Of his new lady love, Angel wrote, “I’m nothing without you.” Angel also wrote that he has never loved anyone the way he loves Belinda, and he credited his new girlfriend, who has also been popping up in his magic acts, with helping to make him the best man he can be.
“I’ve never loved anyone before you,” Criss tweeted.
it makes me happy seeing my son happy.” But many of Angel’s other relationships didn’t end well.
Angel’s first wife, Joann Winkhart Sarantakos, accused the magic man of mental abuse during their marriage.
The 34-year-old actress reportedly is 'head over heels in love' with illusionist Criss Angel, whom she began dating after they were introduced in Las Vegas last month.
They have been seen kissing and hugging over drinks and he publicly has dedicated one of his tricks to her.
“You make me want to be the best man I’m capable of….’Real Magic’ Pure Love Forever Mi Amor.” Criss Angel’s declaration that he has never loved anyone before is interesting.
