David Copperfield says he has found the "Fountain of Youth" in the southern Bahamas, amid a cluster of four tiny islands he recently bought for $50 million
One of his islands in the Exuma chain, Musha Cay, is a private resort that rents for up to $300,000 a week
"I've discovered a true phenomenon," he told Reuters in a telephone interview. "You can take dead leaves, they come in contact with the water, they become full of life again. ... Bugs or insects that are near death, come in contact with the water, they'll fly away. It's an amazing thing, very, very exciting."

You can own the island but do you also own the water surrounding it?

Total marketing scam.
Chicago investor and real estate developer John Melk is sparring with magician David Copperfield over a private island in the Bahamas, in a protracted dispute that has entangled rock star Lenny Kravitz, among others.
Mr. Melk, an early backer of Waste Management Inc. and Blockbuster Inc., claims Mr. Copperfield pulled one of his famous disappearing acts, setting up a shell company and secretly bankrolling its $45.5-million purchase of Mr. Melk's Musha Cay after Mr. Melk refused to sell it to him.
Mogul and magician argue over island
In his court filings, Mr. Melk says he declined to sell to Mr. Copperfield, citing his "lack of experience" in running resorts, "rumors concerning his personal lifestyle" and "alleged ties with the Russian mafia." Mr. Copperfield's lawyer, Bruce Laxalt of Reno-based Laxalt & Nomura Ltd., calls those rumors "bunk."
