In the midst of filming season five of Mindfreak, Criss Angel is facing a lawsuit alleging that he owes royalty payments to another magician.
Jacob Spinney, a psychological illusionist based in Phoenix, filed the suit alleging that Angel has withheld about $250,000 in royalty payments for the use of three illusions, which were featured in episodes of Mindfreak and the DVD “Masterminds Vol. 2: Self-Levitation.”
Angel, according to the above report from the Las Vegas Sun, is in Mammoth, Calif., filming for the latest season of Mindfreak. According to a press release from the U.S. Air Force spotted by iTricks (and has since been removed), part of the season involves walking across a minefield. The upcoming season will debut on Aug. 12.
