Criss Angel's 5-Year-Old Son's Cancer Has Come Back and I'm Not Crying You're Crying

By

In case you needed something to make you cry today, magician Criss Angel revealed that his 5-year-old son Johnny Crisstopher's cancer has relapsed.

Johnny is the son of Criss and his girlfriend Shaunyl Benson, who he's been with since 2012. Johnny is their oldest son, and they are also parents to Johnny's younger brother, Xristos Yanni, who was born in 2019.

Criss revealed the sad news in an interview with TMZ on Tuesday, revealing why he was in California at the time.

Criss Angel's son Johnny was originally diagnosed with cancer in 2015.

Johnny was originally diagnosed with pediatric cancer in 2015 and was working to beat it for the next three years. He entered a short remission, but his leukemia has since come back.

“Johnny Crisstopher — he got diagnosed with pediatric cancer before he was 2 years old — he’s been in treatment for over three years, he’s been in remission,” Criss told TMZ.  "But unfortunately … he had a relapse and he’s going back into the hospital on Monday.”
