NEW YORK, July 2 (UPI) -- Actress Cameron Diaz Monday denied playing a role in the breakup of the marriage of "Mindfreak" star Criss Angel, despite what papers filed in New York say.
"When Cameron met Criss Angel in May of this year, he had been separated from his wife for over a year and she had already filed a petition to divorce him in 2006," Diaz's representative, Brad Cafarelli, told People magazine in a statement. "Cameron and Criss went on only four dates over a month ago and have no current relationship."
Joanne Sarantakos, 37, of New York, is accusing Angel, her husband of five years, of mental cruelty, abandonment and adultery.
"We're naming Cameron Diaz as his lover," her attorney, Dominic Barbara, said in a Nassau County court hearing last week. "We will subpoena her as soon as she comes back to New York."
In his statement, Cafarelli called the comments "meaningless, attention-seeking attempts to unfairly and unnecessarily exploit Cameron's celebrity by trying to involve her in matters she has nothing to do with."
