Mary Murphy Sued by Former Manager in Sex and Drug Scandal
So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy is being sued by her former manager who calls her a desperate, drug-abusing sexaholic and plastic surgery addict in the suit.
Murphy’s ex-manager, Michael Sanchez, was hired as her personal manager back in 2006. He claims that Murphy was a nightmare to work with, and spent most of his tenure doing damage-control to protect Murphy’s image from her own extra-curricular activities. Sanchez was fired in 2010, and has filed suit against the Dance judge, calling her a “desperate, cocaine-fueled nymphomaniac” who had “many inappropriate sexual relationships with ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and ‘Chelsea Lately’ crew members,” in the lawsuit.
Sanchez cited a couple of incidents in particular, even claiming that he had saved Murphy’s life. During the first 2009 incident, Sanchez broke into an “unresponsive” Murphy’s apartment after a “cocaine-fueled evening of partying.” Sanchez and another witness claim to have done the same in Sydney Australia, finding Murphy in a hotel suite, “high on drugs, in bed with a So You Think You Can Dance producer, with cocaine on the nightstand,” according to RadarOnline.
He alleges other misbehavior as well, such as secretly coaching SYTYCD contestants off-camera (which violates FOX TV rules and U.S. game show laws) and drinking on the set by slipping alcohol into Coke cups, reports TMZ. Sanchez goes on to detail Murphy’s “many inappropriate sexual relationships” that he was charged with covering up. He concludes that Murphy is a “desperate, cocaine-fueled nymphomaniac.”
Sanchez maintains that he was loyal to Murphy, despite her ”increasingly self-absorbed, childish and demanding behavior,” but was fired in 2010 over a money dispute. He’s looking for $1,000,000 in damages which includes allegedly unpaid commission.
No word from Murphy’s camp yet.
