TV illusionist Criss Angel has revealed his five-year-old son's cancer has returned after a previous three-year battle with a rare form of leukemia.

The 51-year-old magician - real name Christopher Nicholas Sarantakos - was seen arriving at LAX on Monday with son Johnny Crisstopher as he divulged the sad news.

'Unfortunately he had a relapse and he is going back to the hospital on Monday,' Criss told TMZ.

Back in January, the star spoke to DailyMailTV exclusively and revealed that Johnny Crisstopher was cancer-free after an arduous battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

At the Los Angeles airport, the duo were joined by Johnny Crisstopher's mother Shaunyl Benson and 10-month-old brother Xristos Yanni Sarantakos.

Criss was married to Shaunyl from 2015-2016 before divorcing and have yet to remarry. 

Their eldest child was first diagnosed with the disease in 2015 as Angel revealed to TMZ: 'He got diagnosed with pediatric cancer before he was two-years-old, he's been in treatment for over three years, he's been in remission.'

Regardless of the tough situation, Criss is hoping to not only help with his son's second bout with cancer but also raise lots of money for pediatric cancer as he is expecting to announce a one-night only Las Vegas event.

He said: 'In light of that and all these kids that suffer from pediatric cancer, we are going to try to raise $5million in one night at Planet .'

Angel said that he will be giving out details on the gala sometime next year.

The Mindfreak star also revealed that the family are currently in LA to treat his eldest son to a great time before he has to go back into treatment including trips to Disneyland and Universal Studios theme parks.  

Just 11-months ago, Angel had walked the red carpet wearing matching gold suits with Johnny Crisstopher during the opening night of his new Las Vegas residency MINDFREAK at Planet .

It was there where he disclosed exclusively to DailyMailTV that his son was cancer free. 

'God willing, after three years of treatment, Johnny's last chemo treatment was about a month ago,' Angel said at the time.   

The master magician announced he is planning to release a film about beating the potentially terminal condition to raise awareness about child cancer.
