Did Criss Angel almost kill Paris Jackson?! Okay, not quite, but he did give her one heck of a freak out on his new show, ‘Trick’d Up’ as she claims she saw ‘death’ during one of his stunts. Watch a video of the freaky moment right here!
Criss, 48, has always been known for his mind-blowing tricks, but Paris, 18, apparently was not ready for what he had in store for her when she appeared on his show Trick’d Up. As they hold hands, Criss tells her to look deep into his eyes, as she’ll feel a “surge of energy.” Paris already has a horrified look on her face as she breathes heavily, but it gets even more intense when he asks “What do you see?” — to which she frantically replies “Death.” Whoa.
“What was that?” Paris later asks Criss about the all-too-real moment. He explained that “people see different things,” but she still doesn’t quite seem to understand what he’s talking about. Unfortunately the clip doesn’t show what happens after that, but we can only imagine Paris was pretty spooked for the rest of the time she spent with Criss!
Ironically, the death-seeing stunt wasn’t even part of Criss’ plans while working with Paris. She was the one who asked him to go inside her mind! Who knows if she regretted that decision after having such a terrifying moment, but she definitely got one heck of a Criss Angel experience! Plus, he freaked her out again later by levitating!
Criss talked to Entertainment Tonight about working with Paris, and even gave a possible explanation for why she apparently saw death. “I think that people, when they go through a traumatic experience in their life, those experiences never go away” he said, referencing Paris losing her dad, Michael Jackson, in 2009. That would explain a lot about how affected she was!
Paris and Michael used to watch Criss’ shows together, and Criss always managed to trip Paris out. Sadly Criss never got to work with Michael before he died, but he certainly made up for that by freaking out Paris. Talk about full circle!
