Scott Alexander, a magician best known for his time on “America’s Got Talent,” has died … according to his wife.
Scott’s wife Jenny — who appeared on the show as his assistant — shared the tragic news on Monday, posting … “We have lost a father, a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, a mentor, and one hell of an entertainer.”
As for what led to his death, Jenny says “Scott suffered a stroke while working on a cruise ship in St Kitts and did not make it home to us.”
‘AGT’ fans will remember Scott and Jenny from Season 6 of the hit show. He made quite the impression on the judges with his illusions and tricks, before getting eliminated in the Quarterfinals.
