Criss Angel and Belinda Peregrin Schull were a hot topic from 2016 to 2017. Criss is one of the most famous magicians in America and Belinda is a singer from Mexico. The couple had been on the headlines many times. However, their relationship eventually came to an end. Take a look back at how the illusionist and musician’s love story went.
How They Met
Belinda met Criss for the first time at one of his exhibitions in Las Vegas. Afterward, she was featured on the magician’s popular TV show ‘Trick’d Up,’ where the chemistry of the two was obviously building up.
Ever since she was at the young age of 12, Belinda has been linked to a number of romantic relationships. But one of the most contentious was her association with Criss Angel.
For a year, they both shared photos on social media in which they were seen close together. In their posts, they also exchanged heartfelt remarks in the comment section.
Why They Broke Up
Although they didn’t confirm their relationship initially, their connection was evident. It was when Criss declared the end of his partnership with Belinda in September 2017 that everyone knew they really dated.
It caught everyone off guard as fans believed they were getting engaged that year. The showman was the one who made various remarks implying that the Mexican singer and songwriter had been dishonest and that she was uninterested in him.
On the other hand, Belinda, who is known for avoiding conflict, responded well to Criss by not talking to him at all. She addressed her followers on Twitter, saying that she was single and doing well with her family.
After the Breakup
After they split up, they unfollowed each other on Instagram. The Mexican television program Ventaneando accused Criss of being the one who was unfaithful to the vocalist.
The renowned escapist did not take this lightly. Defamation and lawsuits were getting involved. But before Angel could defend himself, his ex backed him up on Twitter. She declared that these allegations were false.
Apart from the controversies, another remembrance of their relationship remained. That is the “Beli” tattoo on the chest of Criss. In 2019, the illusionist posted a photo on Instagram with his chest exposed, but the tattooed area was covered with tape.
Where They Are Now?
The Criss Angel and Belinda duo is long gone. They have moved on and lived their separate lives. There is no news about Belinda’s current partner, but she’s been very focused on her career. She has released several albums and accomplished many feats.
Belinda launched a shoe line and founded her own music promotion company. The singer also started voice acting. She voiced the cartoon character Princess Poppy in the Spanish version of Trolls and its sequel.
Apart from work, Criss has been taking care of his family. Angel has been with Shaunyl Benson, an Australian singer. The couple has two sons, born in 2014 and 2019. They also had a daughter born in 2021.
