We hope this isn’t true.
Cher is reportedly being sued by a choreographer who worked on her latest tour, claiming racial discrimination.
Choreographer Kevin Wilson’s attorneys have allegedly filed a suit against the 68-year-old singer claiming that she told him there were too many black dancers on stage with her, according to TMZ.
Wilson is claiming that he told Cher there was a ‘minority female dancer’ who he wanted to cast during auditions for her ‘Dressed To Kill’ tour with the singer allegedly replying: “We have too much colour on stage.”
In the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Wilson goes on to allege that he was told ‘not cast anymore dark skinned black dancers on the tour,’ instead being told to hire white and blonde backing dancers.
He also claims that he was fired alongside two other people for speaking out about a male dancer who had allegedly become sexually aggressive with a female fan following a gig in Louisville.
A representative for the singer has released a statement about the damaging claims made, labeling them as ‘ridiculous’.
They told The Mail Online: “These accusations are ridiculous and couldn’t be further from the truth.”
Meanwhile, TMZ reports that Cher’s lawyers have described the claims to be ‘untrue and categorically denied. To attribute such a statement to Cher is absurd.’
