Singer Cher is being sued for apparently complaining about having too many Black people on stage during her performances.

TMZ first broke the story, choreographer Kevin Wilson was helping the singer audition dancers for her “Dressed to Kill” tour in 2014 when he claims he told her he liked “a minority dancer.” In response, Cher said: “We have too much color onstage.”

In the lawsuit filed by attorney Perry Wander, Wilson, who is Black, claims the “Believe” singer told him to instead find a white, blonde dancer. He was then told to “not to cast anymore dark skinned black dancers on the tour.

Per the suit, obtained by TMZ, there was an incident that took place this past June in Louisville, that ultimately led to Wilson’s firing. The choreographer claims that after a show in Louisville, one of the dancers got aggressive with a female fan in his hotel room. Cher allegedly tried to cover it up, and instead of reprimanding the dancer, she fired Wilson and two other

a male dancer invited a female fan to his hotel room and allegedly got sexually aggressive.  The suit claims Cher tried to cover it up … keeping the male dancer in the show and firing three snitches, including Wilson.

“These are ridiculous allegations,” Cher’s rep told the news outlet. “They couldn’t be further from the truth.” Cher’s lawyer zeroed in on the alleged racial statement, calling it “untrue and categorically denied,” adding, “To attribute such a statement to Cher is absurd.”

Wilson is claiming racial discrimination and retaliation.

    So the “I’m a victim of racism ,CHER” singer of the song Halfbreed all of a sudden is racist against blacks.It’s always the ones crying wolf that are the ones hiding something.I would trust an outspoken person that calls it like they see it over an arrogant self richous egalitarian any day of the week.

    We have too many black artists as it is. There is honesty in Cher, if her audition preferences are true. There are no new non-white artists entering the music business anymore and I have estimated that 90% of all new music is sung by a black artist and I hate listening to it. The ones that are not black and do enter the business are driven crazy and end up in a mental breakdown because of racism against them. I ended up having to Cancel my SiriusXM membership because of this problem.
