Criss Angel: Cameron Diaz is Not a Homewrecker

Criss Angel: Cameron Diaz is Not a Homewrecker

Criss Angel speaks up about his messy divorce and his relationship with Cameron Diaz. The Mindfreak star left a little long message on the blog of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous host Robin Leach:

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.

Just under 50% of marriages in this country end in divorce and, as most people understand, it is a very difficult thing to endure. To have it played out in the court of public opinion with misleading statements, lies and innuendo is particularly disturbing and disappointing. I would like to set the record straight with the hopes that this process can proceed in privacy.

My estranged wife filed for divorce on May 5, 2006, over fourteen months ago. 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. The fact that they decided to play both of those cards for the first time last week demonstrates their willingness to manufacture stories for their own purposes.

I have always supported JoAnn’s every expense in the past prior to her filing for divorce in May of 2006 and continue to do so to this day. She has had unlimited access to credit cards that I pay for. I have paid for her cell phone, her car, her gas, her car insurance, her health insurance, trips she has taken even the smallest thing like her cat food. Essentially, I have paid for her every expense. I have also paid for her housing the entire time. In fact, the townhouse where she is currently living and that I am paying for is larger than any place she has ever lived and is also a rent-free home to her brother, the brother who had no problem taking shots at me in the press while he is separated from his wife and small child. JoAnn’s claim that I stopped supporting her is simply false. The statement about lack of support by her and her family is both shocking and a prime example that they will stop at nothing to paint me in the press as some sort of monster in order to extort more money out of me.

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 show. She and her family were thanked and credited in every episode and in my recent autobiography.

The fact that they have tried to use Cameron Diaz to accomplish their ends is a sign of their desperation. Here too they have their facts wrong and are attempting to mislead. Anyone that reads the press can figure out the timeline. Cameron and I met in May of this year at the VH1 Rock Honors show, over a year after JoAnn’s initial filing. She and I went on four or five dates and there is no current relationship between us. Cameron is a good friend and an amazing person and to defame her and myself and paint her as the reason for my marriage’s demise is factually inaccurate, ridiculous and just plain wrong. It seems clear, and very unfortunate to me that JoAnn and her attorney both hope that these false statements will provide my estranged wife, who has also been dating during this time, the financial windfall she is obviously seeking.

I hope that this statement of facts can help clear the air about the myriad of preposterous and salacious accusations that have come out in the past few days and put the process back in the courtroom where it belongs. It has never been my intention to play this out publicly but JoAnn’s false public statements have left me no alternative. I am very confident when all of the facts are presented in court that JoAnn’s true motive will be revealed for what it is.”
Signed, Criss Angel

    Cam looks too photoshoped in that photo((((

  • huh

    Interesting. You’ll call Angelina a homewrecker without knowing anything about that relationship other than what you read in the press (were you there with Brad, Jen and Angelina?) but you’ll emphatically state that Cameron was not a homewrecker based again on what you read in the press. I’m curious why some people give Claire Danes a pass even though she wrecked Billy Crudup and Mary Louise Parker’s relationship when Mary Louis was pregnant, or think that Owen Wilson and Kate Hudson were a cute couple even though that broke up a marriage too. Stunning.

  • What

    Who thought Owen Wilson and Kate Hudson was a cute couple??????

    You forgot the woman Johnny Miller was with before Angelina came along and you also forgot Laura Dern that was living and engaged to Billy Bob before Angelina came a long. But, don’t stop there. Elizabeth Taylor broke up 4 marriages before Angelina, KAte and Owen or Claire was even born.

  • ??

    What about the other 2 women this douche was dating before Cameron and after he split from his wife? Why are they not homewreakers if Cameron was?

    First, I think the statement from C.A. was very well written…it wasn’t rude, it was simply straightforward. I was pleased to see a celebrity who (even if it were with help of a publicist, who knows) can construct a meaningful, eloquent statement. As for all you homewrecker finger pointers…um….it takes two to tangle. Frankly, the homewrecker it the one who LEAVES the marriage – the person dumb enough to date a married person is just that – an idiot. I speak from experience. My husband left while I was pregnant for his coworker. I could spend my time accusing her of homewrecking – but HE is the one who left. Perspective people.

  • JenJen

    LOL that would be “two to tango” – hehe, freudian typo…

    Hey Good Point!!. Sorry you had to go through that. Hope all is well with you now!

  • carolina

    Chris is “using” Cameron too. Her people issued a statement- they should just let it drop. NOW he keeps bringing Cam’s name into it.I think both he and his wife(ex) are using her fame and name to get mileage…

  • why

    why Cameron ever “dated” this guy in the first place is beyond me?

  • hmmm

    huh….why stunning??? Angelina Jolie is famous for being a man-eating you know what.

  • becca

    7 What : 07/10/2007 at 9:56 am

    Please there was no woman with Johnny Lee Miller before Angelina. And there hasn’t been one since.

    Also this Chris Angel statemnet is good only because it shows how biased some people are. When you file for divorce there’s no going back and is as good as the divorce itself. That’s why so many people start new relationships while the divorce proceedings are going on. Some wait until the divorce is final, some dont. It’s a formality, but it’s essentially the same. There no going back when you file. So any relationship after divorce papers have been filed are not considered homewrackers or whatever that archaic word is.

    Ha! you give her so much power. She’s just a woman. I like Cam.. she seems like she can slap the sht out of anyone. I wouldn’t want to mess with her. She’s been looking amazing since her split from the fugly Timberfake. What was she thinking?

    Exactly. Calling Angelina a homewrecker has nothing to do with morals. If it did than that word would be throw out alot more on these threads. The name calling toward Angelina is a problem within the person making the comments.

    BTW many people love Hudson and Owen being together. Read any of the the threads with their picture before they broke up. No one cared that a little boy did not have an intact home. :(

    _________________________

    Kmillz wants people not to believe anyone except Angelina. Angelina is just as human as the rest of us and everyone is just a capable of lying to protect themselves. That is not emotion that is a fact. Deal with it. Angelina is not perfect and she would be the first to say so. That is way she is trying so hard to be a better person now.

  • lula29

    God I wish people would stop trying to defend Laura Dern, for godsake, that woman but the h*o in wh*ore. Her and Ben Harper seem to be doing fine, but please with her a victim.

    Also, Brad Pitt and even Aniston said he didn’t cheat on her, but you guys refuse, REFUSE to believe it for reasons unknown to god.

    Criss Angel just proved the point that if you are divorcing, it’s over. There is no more reconciliation and he has full right to date whoever you want during that period. Some women just like to play victim and use it to their advantage and are surprised others don’t agree with victimhood. IMO Aniston didn’t and hasn’t acted like much of a victim, she’s over it, it’s those who think whining about every single time a man did you wrong for the rest of your life is acceptable, who keep harping on a divorce that didn’t even happen to you.

  • Wow

    Wow, this letter from Chris is amazing. When did others come out and TRY to set the story straight like this and this fast too. (Can’t believe everything and most of it is not really our business)

    What is with these people who can’t more on from Angelina and Jennifer? Grow up and move on. They are both old news. About 3 years old now. Iknow that the IN thing is to recycle but, that doesn’t mean old news.

  • lula29

    Amen Wow!

    STFU about the triangle man, it’s so over there needs to be a new word for how over and done it is!

    You’d think Pitt and Aniston were the only two people to ever get a divorce, man.

  • sally

    AIRBRUSHING!!! She is fug.

  • shopgirl

    Well done, Criss.

  • Elphie

    There’s two sides to everything. True or not, at least Chriss Angel is putting the message out in writing to at least stop the defamation against Cameron. I’m glad she’s staying out of it and not responding. This is between the couple and noone’s business.

  • angell cakes

    why is everyone calling cameron a homewrecker, if criss was seeing her after his wife filed for divorce, how is she a homewrecker
    and with angelina i do believe shes a homewrecker, she one time said shed never be a woman who is seeing someone who is married, yet she was seeing brad when he was still legally married to jennifer and she was cozying up to brad when he was still with jennifer

  • Malibumom

    I have no earthly idea of who Criss Angel is, but he gets some respect from me for trying to set the record straight. He, as well as anyone else with a little “cheese” should understand that it may not all be about the money, but a good deal of it is. After all, you can’t take a handsome face to the bank and you can’t pay bills with rock hard abs!
    There were 2 homewreckers in the Aniston-Pitt marriage and Angelina was NOT one of them! Both of the homewreckers have gone on to build new homes and or extensions to their careers. I personally think the saddest statement in Criss Angel’s letter is the fact that almost half of the marriages in this country end in divorce. That is just sooooo said to me.I guess we really can’t just all get along! By the way who is this guy and what does he do. And yes, I really do live under a rock-no make that a mountain. A mountain of scripts and phone messages and paperwork!

  • You wanna know why

    Angie will be known as a homewrecker bcuz she played the silent game (which is kind of odd considering out much she dishes on her life hmmm maybe there was smething she was hiding?), so anyway people lead to their own conclusion.

    Women like Julia, Claire and other women who got involved with married did not lie, deny or hide their actions – Angie did.

    Good for Chris setting the record straight and clearing Cameron (because he knew the truth), Brad could use a tip from his divorce process.

  • damoiselle

    OWNED!

    chris angel just handed his ex wife a dish of shut the fuck up

    haha that was really well written.sting much?
    nice to see from a celebrity for a change.

  • anon

    With the aniston pitt marriage jennifer, brad and angelina said there was no cheating and no affair jennifer and her friends said themselves what hurt aniston so much was to see him move on so quickly with someone else so soon after and that jennifer denies that she was left for another woman she said all that in her vf artical. If anyone knows more about their marriage ending it would be the people actually in it but yet people choose to believe tabloids who make money for stupid idol gossip.
