‘Dancing With The Stars’ Producer Allegedly Investigated for Selling Drugs to Cast Members
Radaronline.com is reporting that the LAPD is investigating a “Dancing With The Stars” producer for allegedly selling drugs to multiple cast members.
They’ve obtained transcripts of text messages between the producer and both male and female dancers on the show.
“Hey babe! Can I get some nose candy from you? Need it tomorrow if possible…” an April 9, 2014, text from the pro read. “Need it by 7pm at mccadden if possible.” ABC rents the McCaddenSpace Studio in Hollywood for rehearsals.
“Do you have any pepsi I can buy off you by any chance?” another message read, using a common slang term for cocaine. “No I didn’t get any this weekend but I’ll see if my guy is around today,” the producer replied.
When asked for comment, the network declined, stating they have not been notified about any investigation and therefore have nothing to say about it.
The texts in question were exchanged between December 30, 2013 and as recently as October 2, 2014. According to the source, the investigation was launched last month, on the same day the show wrapped up its 18th season.
We’ll see where this goes…
