International magician David Blaine has reportedly been accused of a two separate sexual assaults.

A second British model has allegedly come forward after hearing the story of Natasha Prince who claims that Blaine raped her in 2004.

The anonymous British woman is thought to have told officers at Scotland Yard that the 44-year-old attacked her in New York when she was 19, The Mirror has reported.

This claim adds to the accusations by model Natasha Prince that Blaine drugged her drink at a party in Chelsea, London over a decade ago.

Ms Prince told the Sunday People: “After I told my story, a British ex-model got in contact with me. I got really emotional and started ­crying.”

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed they were investigating an allegation of rape to the paper that matches that timeframe and location.

The department said it had not conducted any arrests and declined to name anyone under investigation.

Ms Prince's allegations were originally reported in the Daily Beast, whom she told Blaine invited her to a friend’s house months after her 21st birthday.

“The next thing I remember, I was sitting in the makeup chair getting my makeup done, and thinking, ‘What did I do last night? Did I have sex with David Blaine?' But I didn’t want to…” I felt hazy, completely out of it," she said.

Blaine denied the allegations but said he is willing to fully cooperate with the investigation.

Blaine’s attorney, Marty Singer, denied all allegations to The Daily Beast in a statement.

​“My client vehemently denies that he raped or sexually assaulted any woman, ever, and he specifically denies raping a woman in 2004,” the statement said.

“If, in fact, there is any police investigation, my client will fully cooperate because he has nothing to hide.”
