Cher Sued By Choreographer

Cher is reportedly being sued for telling her choreographer there were a lot of black people on stage during her shows.  

According to a new lawsuit, obtained by celebrity website TMZ, Cher, 68, was auditioning dancers for her "Dressed to Kill" tour in 2014 when choreographer Kevin Wilson claimed he particularly liked "a minority female dancer." Wilson insists Cher replied: "We have too much color onstage."

Wilson states in the suit, filed by lawyer Perry Wander, Cher then told him to find a white, blonde dancer. Wilson further notes he was ordered "not to cast anymore dark skinned black dancers on the tour."

According to the lawsuit, after a concert this past June in Louisville, a male dancer invited a female fan to his hotel room and  supposedly became sexually aggressive. The suit claims Cher tried to hide the unfortunate incident by keeping the male dancer in the show and firing the 3 whistle-blowers, including Wilson.

Wilson, who is also black, is claiming racial retaliation and discrimination.

Cher's spokesperson denied the allegations, telling TMZ: "These are ridiculous allegations.  They couldn't be further from the truth."
