David Blaine looks casual in a black T-shirt and joggers as he holds hands with daughter Dessa, 11, during rare outing in Malibu
David Blaine was joined by his daughter Dessa as they made a rare outing in Malibu on Sunday.
The magician, 49, cut a casual figure in a black T-shirt and dark grey joggers as he walked hand-in-hand with the 11-year-old while clutching a disposable coffee cup.
He framed his face with sunglasses and donned a black baseball cap while his offspring sported a white top with a blue painted motif.

The TV personality shares Dessa with his former partner, Alizée Guinochet, who he was in a relationship with between 2008 and 2014.
David floated more than 24,000 feet above the Arizona desert held up by a cluster of balloons in his last daring stunt, which took place in December 2020.
The stunt, which was livestreamed on YouTube, saw the illusionist float 24,000 feet in the air held up by 52 helium-filled balloons.
He had estimated he would reach about 18,000 feet. Having reached 24,000 feet after an hour, David – who had a parachute attached to him – skydived back down.

Shortly after taking off, he slowly started dropping five pound weights to ascend even higher. The illusionist, who had an oxygen mask throughout, was climbing at about 500 feet a minute throughout.
At about 8,000 feet, David started strapping himself into a parachute and released himself from the balloons at an altitude of 24,900 feet.
Dessa watched on from the ground and spoke to him several times while he was in the air.
Immediately after landing, he spoke to his daughter telling her: ‘I love you. This is all for you.’
David has gained a reputation for embarking on adrenaline-pumping stunts, including being buried in a plastic box under a three-ton water-filled tank.
In another stunt he spent seven days submerged in an eight-foot diameter water-filled sphere in front of New York City’s Lincoln Center.
He also spent nearly 64 hours trapped in a huge block of ice in Times Square.
In 2003, he carried out a stunt in London where he lasted 44 days in a suspended box over the Thames River without food.
