The lawyer for
Criss Angel's estranged/"secret" wife, Joanna Sarantakos, claimed in court late last week that a romance between the "Mindfreak" and a
Charlie's Angel was the last straw for the magic man's five-year marriage/15-year relationship. "We're naming
Cameron Diaz as his lover," the
New York Post quotes attorney Dominic Barbara as telling the court. "We will subpoena her as soon as she comes back to New York."
Though Angel went to great lengths last month (including in this chat with TV Guide) to quell speculation about comments he directed at Diaz following a Times Square escape illusion, his lawyer is not denying the adultery allegation.
On Monday, Diaz's rep issued a statement pointing out that the actress and Angel first met more than a year after he split from his wife, only went on four dates, and have no current relationship. Says the flack, "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."
