Copperfield Secret Document

How to Pick Up Chicks

11/5/2007 7:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained portions of a secret document from David Copperfield's shows, outlining in extreme detail how the magician's assistants were supposed to rope in the women that David found attractive -- and hold their boyfriends and husbands at bay.

David Copperfield
The document, titled "Show Participation," requires the people who work David's shows to arm themselves with clipboards, a Polaroid camera, a digital camera, brochures of David's islands in the Bahamas and "Blank photo(s) of David (if one of the girls is a scorpion)." "Scorpion" refers to women David brings onstage as part of his act.

The document describes how the assistants need to be heads-up for attractive women whom David can meet backstage after the performance. We're told the plan is to keep boyfriends and husband in the arena, adding "from time to time, boyfriends and husbands will give us a hard time and refuse to stay. If that is the case, try your best to get them to stay and refer to the "What to Say" sheet for help."

And it gets creepier.

According to the document, "On occasion David will have you pull in both scorpions even if he is only interested in one of them, just for comfort."

But wait -- it gets worse. The assistants are told to sell the women before David arrives backstage. They're supposed to say: "Do you know that David has recently bought some islands in the Bahamas? Well they are BEAUTIFUL and we are doing a lot of project (sic) for these islands: Ads, TV, Radio and many other promotions. So we like (sic) to keep in touch with you in case there is a job in the future we think you would be interested in."

According to the document, the women are then supposed to fill out a questionnaire -- "Where are you from... What hotel are you staying in. How long are you in town. Who did you come to the show with? Husband? Boyfriend? Friend?"

And then there's the threatening letter David's lawyer sent to David's employees -- after the investigation was revealed -- telling them they had a duty never to talk about what David was really doing at his show. The plot thickens.

David has been under investigation, after a woman who was in the audience claims he flew her to the Bahamas and allegedly raped her. He denies it.

What a convoluted way to meet women. Definitely weird. Rock stars do not meet women in this manner. A roadie will discreetly approach the woman and offer a backstage pass and the opportunity to meet the rocker after the show. No BS, and no pressure, and certainly no "Island Brochures." Something is seriously wrong with this dude.

I don't know which is worse... that this is creepy beyond description, or that for some reason Copperfield has to have paid employees help him get women. He's a loser either way.

Sure, Crazy Creepy, but you KNOW after this, there's goinng to be just a different type of woman seeking him out, just like famous guys in prison, guys like John Mark Carr, etc.

He'll probably just get laid more, only by women as equally creepy as him, and there's probably more of them....

Yeah, what was that whole thing a few years ago with David Copperfield and Claudia Schiffer having a "contractual" dating relationship? Sounds like this once great showman is really a social 'tard w/ an "inner" pocket protector, and it's showing itself like he's a real perv.

There is something very odd in all this-- I can't imagine that this guy couldn't pick up women "the old fashioned way"... for one thing, the questions on the form are strangely worded, for another, I can't figure out why anyone would be so "obvious" as to have a questionairre-- I mean, the guy had to know this stuff could be leaked...I have a feeling there is more to this than meets the eye, but I guess we'll all find out as more info is leaked!
