Some people can't handle a little fame, and sources say Todrick Hall is no exception. The singer and choreographer took to Twitter.com to apologize after disgruntled staffers complained that he refuses to pay them.

According to WENN.com, Todrick is accused of not paying dancers for months of work. The 34-year-old Aries rose to fame on American Idol in 2009 before carving out a successful career for himself on YouTube, in music, television and in theater.

Todrick came under fire after dancer Thom White shared his experience working with him on Twitter, writing: "A bunch of folks have asked about my experience working with Todrick... Your reservations about the fella are valid."

Thom accused Todrick of not paying him for dance work, and he claimed the performer discriminated against Black dancers on a music video set, writing: "He turned to us to say 'this is looking a little too chocolate... Can I get some lighter people behind me'."

Taking to Twitter to defend himself, Todrick insisted he "adores" Thom, adding: "This is surprising to me, he hasn't been paid yet, he will be... not because he's trying to 'expose' me but because he deserves it. I only got two texts, no calls, I was over seas opening my tour & that video has only been out for 2 weeks."

Following the post, Drag Race alum Manila Luzon took to the comments alleging Todrick owed her money too, writing: "Well you still owe me for hosting your Halloween party since LAST YEAR so..." - referring to his Halloween Ball in 2018.

More allegations soon came to light, with Todrick's former assistant Thomas McKissock agreeing with Thom's claims he was late with payments and showed racist tendencies.

Todrick was the choreographer for Beyonce Knowles-Carter's music video for "Blow".

B. Scott sues BET Network

Hopefully transgender blogger B. Scott didn't pre-order that new Mercedes Benz (or any other luxury vehicle). It looks like he will not be coming into millions of dollars from that anti-discrimination lawsuit he filed against BET Network.

Gossip tabloid TMZ reports Scott lost his lawsuit today.

BET hired Scott as a fashion reporter during the 2013 BET Awards last summer. But after Scott showed up tardy for his hosting gig, BET's Stephen Hill reportedly ordered Scott to change into attire more suitable for a masculine male host.

In a post published on his blog, Scott said he was “disheartened” by BET’s attempts to tone down his flamboyant personality.

Black diners ejected from restaurant

A Charleston man who says he and his family were racially discriminated against at a restaurant took his complaints to Facebook, reports Live 5 News. Michael Brown says he and other family members were celebrating at Wild Wing Cafe in North Charleston, when a shift manager asked the raucous party to move to another section because a white customer was uncomfortable.

"She said there's a situation where one of our customers feels threatened by your party, so she asked us not to seat you in our section, which totally alarmed all of us because we're sitting there peaceably for two hours," explains Brown. "Obviously, if we were causing any conflict, we would have been ejected out of the place hours before."
