Diane Neal, a former actress on “Law and Order: SVU” claims her magician ex-boyfriend physically and sexually abused her and her pets. She accuses magician JB Benn of being a con artist as well as a “manipulative and maniacal fraudster,” according to The Daily Mail.
The musician Moby posted his disbelief. “I’ve seen JB do magic at least 250 times and each time I’m just as stunned as the last. Some of his magic shouldn’t be possible, and it makes my brain hurt in the best possible ways.’
According to The Daily Mail, the magician allegedly “defrauded her of millions” and “violently inflicted emotional distress” in a “campaign of isolation, terror and (physical and sexual) assault, and destroyed her reputation by doing so.”
According to Page Six, on Wednesday, Mr. Benn pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge resulting in a $200.00 fine and a two-year protection plan for Ms. Neal.
As in any story of this ilk, there are terrible claims and accusations; including injury to their pet. Most of which we won’t print here because they turn our stomach and makes us sad.
