Christopher Nicholas Sarantakos (Greek: Χριστόφορος Νικόλαος Σαραντάκος; born December 19, 1967), known by the stage name Criss Angel, is an American magician, illusionist and musician. Angel began his career in New York City, before moving his base of operations to the Las Vegas Valley. He is known for starring in the television and stage show Criss Angel Mindfreak and his previous live performance illusion show Criss Angel Believe in collaboration with Cirque du Soleil at the Luxor casino in Las Vegas. The show generated $150 million in tourist revenue to Las Vegas in 2010, but has since been replaced by Mindfreak LIVE! on 11 May 2016 (the show is partly produced by Cirque du Soleil; however, the directive rights are entirely with Criss Angel). He also starred in the television series Criss Angel BeLIEve on Spike TV, the reality-competition television show Phenomenon on NBC, and the 2014 stage show Criss Angel Magicjam.

Criss is a very gorgeous man, he could not break a mirror. Hater. Does anyone know what happened with him and Belinda?

DenisseinLAAug 14, 2017

Why is Shaunyl Benson, mother of his son, not mentioned here???????? And I am finding hints on the internet that he and Belinda are broken up?

wjerryzwjerryzJul 8, 2016

He should look in a mirror. He would break it.

CoryfoxxNov 4, 2015

WAIT!!! What happened to Criss' as he said love of his life Sandra? Weren't they engaged? Did he say his true love Sandra was always by his side. AND ..... why did he make a big deal all over the internet with his engagement to Sandra and keep his now wife and son in the dark?

Crimson81Oct 30, 2015

Hmm, I'm reading all these comments from haters saying he should support his misses financially. But she's an adult, it's her kid too, and therefore it's just as much her responsibility to support their as it is Angel's. IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO..REMEMBER THAT, IT'S NOT SOLEY HIS RESPONSIBLE TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR SON.

There is one thing you guys are wrong about. The idea that Criss doesn't care about his son is absolutely bogus. He just canceled some of his shows so he could fly to Australia to see Johnny since he was diagonosed with Leukemia

ThatKarmaBitchOct 19, 2015

Yes it's true about Chloe... Yes he's a mess these days. No never supported Shaunyl or his son before they moved to LV. Still doesn't .. He sent his son away so he could screw a showgirl ... I honestly think he's lost his mind... I actually HOPE that's true! Would restore a bit of my faith...

LisafreakOct 18, 2015

Shaunyl heading back to Oz makes sense. I wonder if Criss supports her financially. It's really the least he can do. Don't get me started on the recent story with Chloe, if it's true, this guy is a complete mess, but to each their own, right? I always wanted the best for him, but his actions make it hard to feel bad for him.

ThatKarmaBitchOct 3, 2015

Oh and yes Criss interacts with his fans alright! As long as you're hot and over 18 #btdt

ThatKarmaBitchOct 3, 2015

@toxic_innocence. He's no celebrity to me. There's a saying " if you lays down with dogs you'll get fleas"... And I don't hate .. Just speak the truth. I honestly hope that the whole story never comes out because it will crush him And he has always worked very hard to get where he is now. I can respect that. And his child is safe ,sound, and happy back home with his family in Oz. Right as rain :) #LessonsLearned

I would have been okay if somebody just mentioned that they don't like him, or had bad experience. But to me, outright calling him rude and an ass comes out as being hateful, judgemental, disrespectful, and childish to me. At the point it seems like they are only trying to make him look bad, and trying to put a dent into his career. There are many celebrities that I don't like, but I don't go around commenting about how much a jerk I think they are.
