Los Angeles, Oct 25 (IANS) Magician Criss Angel had to cancel his Las Vegas shows at the Luxor after finding out that his son Johnny Crisstopher Sarantakos was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Angel consequently cancelled his show “Criss Angel BeLIEve” in Las Vegas to travel to Australia and be with his ailing son, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“In light of a family emergency the news I was going to announce this weekend will be postponed. Thank you xc,” Angel wrote on Twitter.
The 47-year-old magician never confirmed that he had a child let alone that he married the boy’s Australian mother.
Part of his private life was revealed to public on Friday when he posted a photo of him holding his 20-month-old son.
“Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. Criss,” Angel tweeted.
All of his shows at the Luxor have been shelved and will commence on November 4.
