Oprah Winfrey’s interview with magician David Copperfield will be televised on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” this Sunday, July 15th on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

Oprah traveled to David Copperfield’s Musha Cay in order to conduct the interview. Copperfield’s island–part of the Exuma chain–is located in the southern Bahamas. The dramatic setting provides the perfect backdrop for the deeply personal interview in which David discusses fatherhood, his abusive childhood and topics regarding his legendary career in magic. Copperfield also discusses the sexual allegations which had once been brought against him. David Copperfield’s fiancée, Chloe Gosselin, is also interviewed. “Oprah’s Next Chapter” offers the platform from which Gosselin has granted this, her first television interview. She and David talk about marriage and their young daughter, Sky.

David addresses the sexual abuse allegations that had been filed against him by the claimant who had once accused Copperfield of assault in this transcript excerpt from the interview. (Article continues, HERE.)
