(LAS VEGAS SUN) — “Mindfreak” magician Criss Angel has canceled performances of his Cirque du Soleil show “Believe” at the Luxor as of tonight through Nov. 1 as he flies to Australia to be with his sick 20-month-old son. This is the first public confirmation of a long-known and often-rumored child.
Little Johnny Crisstopher Sarantakos was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when he returned with his mother to their homeland in Australia.
“For many years, Criss has championed and raised money for various children’s charities here in Las Vegas, but he never thought it would hit this close to home,” said one of his Cirque colleagues this morning. “This is a very personal family crisis.”
