Illusionist and musician Criss Angel was born on December 19, 1967. He began to amaze crowds at birthday parties, nightclubs and family events with his magic acts until he gained enough recognition to astonish people on a grander scale, performing in “World of Illusion” at Madison Square Garden and in his own off-Broadway show.
He brings magic to the masses on A&E’s Criss Angel Mindfreak which premiered in 2005. Although he had a “secret” marriage to wife Joann Sarantakos, which ended in 2007, he has been linked to many Hollywood hotties, including Cameron Diaz and Britney Spears.
Angel dated Girls Next Door star Holly Madison for four months before they split in 2009.
