It’s a bombshell set to rock the foundations of reality TV: RadarOnline.com has learned that a Dancing With The Stars producer is currently under investigation by Los Angeles police for allegedly providing illegal drug to cast members of the ABC competition show.
Radar obtained a series of iPhone text messages between the producer and dancers that LAPD narcotics detectives are using in their probe.
”I got moon rocks, it’s the highest form of Molly. Pure crystal," the producer wrote in a December 30, 2013, text message to one of the professional dancers on the show.
The messages indicated that the dancers ordered drugs to be delivered to a Hollywood studio where they were rehearing for the show.
“Hey babe! Can I get some nose candy from you? Need it tomorrow if possible…” an April 9, 2014, text from the pro read. “Need it by 7pm at mccadden if possible.” ABC rents the McCaddenSpace Studio in Hollywood for rehearsals.
The police probe began last month, the same day as the finale of the show’s 18th season, Radar confirmed. No arrests have been made.
“The LAPD have not notified us or confirmed that any investigation is underway and we therefore have no further comment to make on the subject,” a spokesperson for BBC Worldwide Productions, which owns and produces the dance competition, told Radar.
The messages suggested the producer and a female dancer were particularly close: “Also, you are one of my best friends and I love you,” the producer texted. “I love you more!” the dancer replied.
When a male dancer texted a nose emoticon to the producer — apparently asking for a drug consumed through the nose — the response was “Too late, but I got a jumbo so you can just hit off mine.”
“Do you have any pepsi I can buy off you by any chance?” another message read, using a common slang term for cocaine.
“No I didn’t get any this weekend but I’ll see if my guy is around today,” the producer replied.
An October 2, 2014, text included a photo of a postage-stamp size package stamped with seven black spades. “I even had two bags of Molly ready,” the accompanying text from the producer read.
“Well s—t.. Fed ex it...,” the dancer responded.
An insider leaked the text messages to Radar in the hopes of getting the producer fired — and getting the drug-using cast members into rehab.
“He should be fired,” the source says. “The amount of drugs he’s given to everyone is insane.”
And the producers’ drug buddies on the show even included one celebrity contestant who was “on the wagon” at the time, according to the insider.
“These people probably need to go and work on their issues,” the source says. “They think that they have things without consequences, no repercussions. It’s a great lesson for every one.”
