Legendary singer Cher has being sued for allegedly making racial comments to her choreographer. The lead dancer - who is black- claims the singer told him there were too many black people on stage during her concerts. She is calling the accusation 'bullshit'!

According to the lawsuit, the "Believe" hit-maker was auditioning dancers for her "Dressed to Kill" tour in 2014 when choreographer Kevin Wilson said he particularly liked "a minority female dancer."   Wilson claims Cher responded, "We have too much color onstage."  

In the suit filed by attorney Perry Wande, Wilson claims Cher then told him to find a white, blonde dancer.  Wilson also claims he was instructed "not to cast anymore dark skinned black dancers on the tour."  
 
Again, the lawsuit mentioned that after a show this past June in Louisville, a male dancer invited a female fan to his hotel room and allegedly got sexually aggressive.  The suit claims Cher tried to cover it up ... keeping the male dancer in the show and firing the 3 whistle-blowers, including Wilson, according to TMZ.

The 3 claim they were told the reason for the firing was budget cuts, which they disapproved because the tour was a huge success, grossing a reported $54.9 million and her Bob Mackie costumes cost $100,000 a pop.

Wilson is now claiming racial discrimination and retaliation.

TMZ reports that Cher's rep says, "These are ridiculous allegations.  They couldn't be further from the truth.
