Angel Furious Over Estranged Wife's 'Blatant Lies'

LATEST: Illusionist CRISS ANGEL has accused his estranged wife JOANNE SARANTAKOS of telling a divorce court "blatant lies" about their marriage. Angel - real name Christopher Sarantakos - has been accused by Sarantakos of failing to support her financially during their five year marriage. In court papers filed at Nassau County Court, New York last month (29Jun07), she also claims Angel kept their marriage a secret from his family. But Angel has branded the allegations "lies", saying he has always paid for her "every expense". He says, "It is with great sadness and disappointment that I feel the need to dignify and refute the inaccuracies, blatant lies and misrepresentations that my estranged wife and her attorney made last week in a New York courtroom and continue to make in the press. "When she filed her complaint over one year ago, and when she amended it twice she made no mention of alleged adultery or lack of financial support. "I have always supported Joanne's every expense. Essentially, I have paid for her every expense. Her claim that she was my 'secret' wife is preposterous and inaccurate. Our marriage was well known to my friends and all of my fans worldwide. She was featured prominently in the first two seasons of my (Mindfreak) show. She and her family were thanked and credited in every episode and in my recent autobiography."
