Matthew Morrison He takes a stand against the allegations he sent to a contestant via text messages “So you think you can dance”… He reads the purported message out loud, putting an end to speculation that it is inappropriate.
Morrison, who was recently released from the show for failing to follow “competition production protocols,” was visibly restless in a video he posted on Instagram, captioning, “Just to clarify..”
He opens it by saying, “It is unfortunate that I am sitting here defending myself and my family against blatantly false statements. UnknownBut I have nothing to hide. So, for the sake of transparency… I’m going to read to you the only letter I wrote to a dancer on the show.”
Then he reads the message, which we checked on April 25 at 12:34 a.m. and says, “Hey! It’s Matthew. If you don’t mind, I’d love to get your number and walk you through a few things…”
Morrison then explained that he wanted to connect with the contestant because they shared a “mutual respect” for a choreographer, and he wanted said choreographer to get a job on the show.
Our sources say it was the contestant who reported the message to show the producers might be a problem.
Sources close to Morrison tell us that he was not aware of the no-contact rule in the judge’s contract. We were told he worked on dance shows in the UK where collaborations with contestants were encouraged…and we didn’t think it would be a problem.
He finished his video with a message about gossip, and how dangerous it is to society before wishing all the best of luck to all the contestants and fellow former judges.
