People magazine, citing a “source” close to the reality show, reported earlier this week that Morrison had been released due to harassing messages to a contestant. She allegedly approached the producers, who got involved with Fox, who then fired Morrison after an investigation.
Today, Morrison responded to the allegations.
“Getting a chance to be a judge If you think you can dance It was an incredible honor for me. “Therefore, I am very sorry to inform you that I am leaving the show,” Morrison said in a statement provided to Deadline. “After filming the test rounds for the show and completing the selection of 12 finalists, I did not follow competition production protocols, which prevented me from judging the competition fairly. I cannot apologize enough to all involved and will watch alongside you all for what I know will be one of the best seasons yet” .
The sources told the deadline, a new referee will be announced soon, who will join Siwa and Stephen, head of “tWitch” in the committee, for the next round of competition episodes that will start on June 15. It was previously registered.
