Criss Angel Sued Over A Cat


I will let you decided who is right, who is wrong, and who needs to go out and just adopt a new cat. According to the NY Daily News, there was a couple in Las Vegas that owned a cat. The couple both died of cancer and gave the cat to their son Jeff Beacher who produces shows in Las Vegas. At the time Jeff's parents died he was living in the Hard Rock Hotel and they wouldn't let him keep the cat. So, Mr. Beacher sent the cat to live with a friend until he could find a place to live other than a hotel. The friend he let take care of the cat is Jennifer Madden. At one point Criss Angel went to Jennifer Madden's house and took the cat. Both Mr. Beacher and Ms. Madden protested, but very, very weakly.

Later, Criss phoned Mr. Beacher and said, "I took your cat. He lives with me now. The cat no longer likes you. The cat and I have become close friends."

That last part definitely sounds like something Criss would say. So, you would think Mr. Beacher would demand his cat back then and there. But, nooooo. He waited two years. That phone call was two years ago and now he is just filing the suit. He says in the suit he was too distraught over the death of his parents to worry about it until now. I'm sorry, but I don't really have much sympathy for Mr. Beacher. If he really cared about this cat, don't you think he would have done something by now? I have never taken Criss Angel's side in anything, but at least he seems to have been willing to provide a home for the cat. Ms. Madden didn't really try that hard to get it back. Why would you go after the cat now? What would you do? I say let Criss keep the cat.

"The cat no longer likes you"!!! That totally made my day. And I agree, let Cris Angel keep the cat. They are, after all, "close friends". Hahaha!

Criss sounds like an ass--but he has also taken care of the cat for two years. Even if the cat had liked Mr. Beacher before, it probably won't be too thrilled with him now.

nancer said...

yeah, what's this guy's motive? too bad, but after 2 years, the cat should stay where it is---even if it's with criss angel.

jax said...

hasn't the cat suffered enough?
2 years with Criss Angel is more time than most people get for sexual assault.

and who just goes and steals a cat?
i'm sorry, even if Criss is treating the cat right and they are tight like homeboys, fuck him!

whats the statute of limitations on catnapping?

oh god I kill me!

mr. ray said...

@ Miss...catnapping...HYSTERICAL!

Hervana said...

There's lots of spare cats in the world, and as long as you feed 'em they'll pretty much tolerate you, scrawb all your stuuf and make it hairy and smelly, so yeah - get a new cat and try to move on.

Pookie said...

criss is a douche, but apparently kitty likes him, so let kitty stay.

Publicity does wonders for mediocre lives, doesn't it?

Criss said, "The cat no longer likes you". Criss would've had to prove this if the suit was filed two years ago. I mean, that is a really hurtful statement. Emotional stress, defamation of character, you name it...:p

Mr. Beacher should be thinking of all the homeless kitties in the world and move on.

If Jeff Beacher hasn't sent Criss money for the kittie's food and vet bills during the last two years, then the cat should stay with Criss.

"The cat no longer likes you"

This statement ALONE awards Criss the cat.

I'm with him on this one.

Hervana said...

Tug of love kitteh, get 'em all in a courtroom and have the guys call the cat...the one the cat goes to gets to keep it. Easy. The other one has to go get a frigging life.

Chris all the way. LOL. Way too funny. The cat no longer likes you.

ardleigh said...

I say we let the cat decide. :)

Seroiusly if the cat is being cared for by Criss then he should get the cat.

Have animal control check on the Kitty and if it isn't like Parisite's puppies (abandoned and forgotten in the closet)let the cat be with Criss A.

Bad Fish said...

What the hell? Who just ups and takes someone else's cat? SERIOUSLY. Criss Angel is such a greasy douche.

Wipe-Out said...

I wonder why Mr. Beacher wants his cat back? Perhaps his inheritance is dependent on his taking care of the kitty.

shakey said...

Give it a reality show where the cat gives a hairball to the loser. Ratings winner.

If the cat is happy, let him stay.

I actually had someone leave a cat with me for a YEAR and then when he asked for the cat back out of the blue one day I told him to go fuck himself. The cat was happier with me and my other kitties, and I had been supporting the sweet little cutie for all that time. Sorry dude, 's my cat now.

I know what Criss is saying, even though I hate that douchebag. He looks mad strung out in that pic. :P

linnea said...

BUT, maybe this guy has been trying to get his cat back for the past two years. Sneaking around Chris´ house, putting out cheese (my cat loves it) leading into a cage, all that stuff. And when that didnt work (simply because the cat doesnt like him anymore) he sued!

Jerry said...

If someone had stolen my cat, they wouldn't live long enough for me to sue them.

Ms. said...

If the guy has tried to get his cat back over the past two years, then it should be returned. However, if he let the situation slide and only now is trying to reclaim the kitty, then forget it.

I'm with Jerry. If someone took my pet, they'd be toast. I can't imagine not aggressively pursuing it immediately.

LauraM said...

I don't care much for Criss Angel, and don't agree that he should've taken the cat, but....
Too little too late, (actually a lot little a lot late), my vote is for Criss to keep the cat.
