The American magician David Blaine has been accused of raping a model in a London house more than a decade ago.

Police have asked Blaine come to Britain to be interviewed, according to emails reviewed by The Daily Beast.

"He spun around quite quickly and said, 'Kiss me.' I did kiss him". The lights were on, and I was naked. Alternatively, Blaine was beside her and not wearing any shirt. "I was limp, and I was very floaty; I was in and out of a deep sleep", Prince said.

Prince revealed that she first met Blaine at Wellington, a Knightsbridge nightclub. She can not remember what he exactly told her, but she recalled that he was giving her a lot of attention. He invited her to his friend's private home for drinks. At first, she refused because of her busy schedule, but she later agreed when he offered to send a vehicle to fetch her.

She reported the incident to police on November 17, 2016.

Virender Sehwag's epic response to Sachin Tendulkar's 'ulta' birthday wish
As the talented cricketer celebrates his 39th birthday, fans and fellow cricketers are wishing the star. Sehwag was also a part of two World Cup winning squads, led by former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

She saw Blaine again six years later in the New York City subway with his girlfriend and daughter where they exchanged some small talk; a few days later, Price said she ran into Blaine outside the gallery where she worked. In my head, rape was being sober-pull her in a bush, pull down her trousers and just ditch her... So, she blamed herself for what happened. I was interested in him. She felt like her attraction led to reveal possible interest, so she thought that she had invited the attack. The last thing she remembers is Blaine telling her to "finish her drink".

On the other hand, Blaine's lawyer, Marty Singer, turned down the accusation.

In a statement, an attorney for Blaine said: 'My client vehemently denies that he raped or sexually assaulted any woman, ever, and he specifically denies raping a woman in 2004.

'If, in fact, there is any police investigation, my client will fully cooperate because he has nothing to hide'.

Scotland Yard officials emailed Blaine, vis his legal team, requesting he come to the United Kingdom for an "interview under caution", at which he and his legal team would be provided with the finer details of the police investigation into the incident.
