We have an update on Matthew Morrison’s resignation as a judge of So You Think You Can Dance.

An insider behind the reality show told People magazine that Morrison was fired from the program “after having an affair with a female contestant.”
“They didn’t have sex, but she reached out to him via flirt messages directly on social media,” the source told People.
“He felt uncomfortable in his comment line and went to the producers, who then involved Fox. He was fired after they conducted their own investigation.”
The outlet added that Morrison and the unidentified female contestant “never met off-set.”
