Lythgoe’s Exit Amid Paula Abdul Scandal
Mr. Lythgoe is a person who has been accused of doing something bad to Ms. Abdul. He said that he is leaving the show he helped make, even though he didn’t want to, because he thinks the show should be all about dancing and dancers.
For now, I am focusing on proving that I am innocent and making people believe that I am a good person again,” Mr. Lythgoe, who helped make the show, said in the statement.
Last month, a lady named Ms. Abdul said that a man named Mr. Lythgoe did some really bad things to her a long time ago when she was working on a TV show called “American Idol.”
She said he pushed her, touched her private parts and kissed her forcefully. Mr. Lythgoe, who helped make the show, said that these things didn’t happen and that he is very upset by the accusations.
Mr. Lythgoe is also known for another show called “So You Think You Can Dance” which he played a role in establishing and has been on for a long time.
Mr. Lythgoe is a person who helps organize and promote dance performances. He has been a judge on a TV show about dancing for a really long time.
On the show, he gives advice and comments to young dancers who do different types of dances like contemporary, ballroom, and hip-hop. The show was going to come back on TV this spring with some changes.
Mr. Lythgoe was going to work featuring fresh judges, among them Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who is famous for choreographing dances on another show called “Dancing With the Stars,” and Allison Holker, who used to be a contestant on that show.
The people who make the show and the TV channel that shows it said they are going to continue the show without one of the people in charge.
They want to make sure the people who worked really hard to be on the show still get their chance to compete, they have worked hard practicing and it was none of their fault.
