BLAINE FAKER NOT FAKIR

Upside-down delusionist David Blaine is no Houdini - he's cheated!

Blaine didn't hang upside-down in New York' Central Park for 60 hours, according to FoxNews.com. 

He was caught taking breaks every hour!

You'd think this would deflate the 35 year-old Emir of Endurance's claim of a super-spectacular stunt but his rep now says Blaine never intended to play a bat-mensch for sixty hours straight.

"About once an hour he has to come down for a medical check, to stretch, and to relieve himself, because even David Blaine can't do that upside down," Blaine's rep Patrick Smith told Fox News.

Earlier in the week Blaine claimed he'd relieve himself via catheter but now

"The doctors told him if he doesn't do that, he will die," Smith said.

Blaine's Hackensack "doctors" also claimed he might "go blind" as a result of the stunt.

Meanwhile a no-hold-barred Kelly Rippa  donned a harness to hang alongside Blaine on  Live with Regis and Kelly.

Apparently, she is A-OK. UPDATE: Blaine survived with no harm done. Wotta surprise.
