Bubbly So You Think You Can Dance US judge Mary Murphy, known for telling contestants they're on "the hot tamale train", is the target of a series of shocking allegations made by her ex-manager in a lawsuit against the 54-year-old ex-dancer.
Michael Sanchez, who managed the dance show judge from 2006-2010, is suing Mary for breach of contract and more than $1 million in unpaid commissions and damages, Radar Online reports.
The famously upbeat judge has been called a "desperate, cocaine-fuelled nymphomaniac" by her ex-manager, who claimed her alleged prescription and illegal drug abuse affected her behaviour and business commitments.
He cited two incidents in 2009, the first involving security breaking into Mary's apartment to find her "unresponsive" after a "cocaine-fuelled evening of partying".
The second incident allegedly occurred at Sydney hotel, where Michael and another witness claim to have found her "high on drugs, in bed with a So You Think You Can Dance producer, with cocaine on the nightstand."
He also claimed he had to cover up Mary's alleged "many inappropriate sexual relationships".
Among the many allegations are claims that Mary made SYTYCD producers serve her alcohol in a Coca Cola cup, and that she cheated by coaching certain contestants on the show.
The former manager also claimed he wrote most of Mary's one liners for the show, and privately counselled Mary for various issues including "depression", "suicidal thoughts" and "addiction to plastic surgery".
Mary's lawyer says the lawsuit is full of "libellous remarks and allegations", claiming it arises from another lawsuit involving the ex-manager's bankruptcy and money owing to Mary.
The SYTYCD judge appears on the ninth season of the popular series airing this week in the US.
