Criss Angel's son is no longer in remission, according to TMZ.

Angel's son, Johnny Chrisstopher, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2015 when he was 21 months old. Angel's wife posted that he was in remission in September, but Angel says that he had a relapse and is going back into the hospital on Monday.

TMZ caught up with Angel while he was in California. Angel was there to take Johnny to Disneyland and Universal Studios.

It is not known when it was discovered that Johnny relapsed. Angel also told TMZ that he is planning another fundraiser. He hosted a benefit for pediatric cancer research and treatment in September 2016.

Angel has performed on the Las Vegas Strip for several years. His first show, "Criss Angel Believe," was at the Luxor hotel-casino. His newest show, "Criss Angel Mindfreak," can be seen at Planet Hollywood.

The master magician and illusionist sponsored a new patient exam room at the Cure 4 Kids Foundation in May 2019 in honor of his son.
