Copperfield Reportedly Investigated for Rape

10/19/2007 1:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

FOX News Channel is reporting that a Seattle woman is alleging magician David Copperfield raped her.

The woman told Seattle police the magician raped her while she was in the Bahamas in July. Because the alleged incident happened abroad and the woman did not report the incident until she returned to the United States, Seattle authorities turned the case over to the FBI. We're told that no rape kit was done on the alleged victim in the Bahamas, which could make prosecution difficult.

As we reported yesterday, FBI agents "stormed the warehouse," and seized a computer hard drive, a digital camera system and nearly $2 million in cash.

David Chesnoff, Copperfield's lawyer, told TMZ, "We understand there is an investigation, we are in touch with the investigators, and are respecting the confidentiality of the investigation."

What is it in his warehouse they are going to find that would implicate him in a rape?

Or is he the type to take photos and movies of his dirty deeds?

I smell a date rape drugging and filming here, like that Luster guy Dog nailed in Mexico.

But will have to see how things come out...

Impossible! No woman in her right mind would say no. He's always been a hunk. Besides, he'll just make any DNA disappear - no evidence, no crime.

Interesting. My first thought when they mentioned hard drives was child porn. Glad it's not that. Probably it's the usual.. good looking wealthy celeb dude has one nighter with random chick, she gets mad when he says 'later' the next morning, and cries rape. Just like with Kobe. Good luck David!
