There is a deep and painful personal reason for illusionist Criss Angel to do his abrupt disappearing act lately. Here is the entire story for you.
The world knows Criss Angel as a great illusionist. The celebrity is based in Las Vegas and is getting ready for his journey to Australia. He will accompany his son Johnny Crisstopher Sarantakos who is just two years old. Unfortunately, his toddler has been detected with an acute form of leukemia or cancer. This was reported by the Las Vegas Sun.
Angel, whose actual name is Cristopher Nicholas Sarantakos, had taken to social media last Thursday to communicate to his followers and fans that there is an emergency in his family and he is compelled to postpone some news that were supposed to be announced by him.
On the other hand, the Luxor too shared that the illusionist had cancelled all his shows until November 1 this year. This is the first time that Angel would be missing any show dates, as his son needs utmost care at this point of time.
Criss is well-known for his various humanitarian activities. He had been actively involved in raising money and in championing for a number of charities that deal with causes for children in Las Vegas.
However, he would have never imagined even in his wildest dreams that he would also be affected in his personal life in a similar fashion. This is indeed an immense crisis in his family that he is trying to battle out.
Ever since this painful news came out, Angel, 47, had uploaded his picture along with his adorable toddler in his arms. The star of “Believe” has confirmed for the first time that he is a father and tweeted, expressing his gratitude for his fans’ prayers and thoughts.
We can just pray that Angel, along with his family members emerge victorious in this battle with cancer.
