So You Think You Can Dance on FOX judge Nigel Lythgoe recently gave us our top 20 dancers for the season, and recently the 61 year old dance lover dished on his own love life. So is he currently in a relationship of his own? You betcha! Keep reading for more!
So You Think You Can Dance’s Nigel Lythgoe loves dance, we all know that – but about his love life? Nigel recently dished on his divorce, claiming that his ex wife had another man, and she was the one who pursued the divorce. So is he in another relationship? Sort of – In a recent interview our favorite male judge said when asked about a relationship “No. I’m married to my work.” Married to his work? You bet! Mr. Lythgoe has many projects going and is dedicated and hard working, probably why we love him so much!
So why doesn’t the sweet, comical man have a lady in his life? Nigel went on to say “it’s totally unfair to have a relationship with someone at the moment that I can’t be there for. It’s tough enough looking after dogs.” He has a dalmatian and a pitbull, named Bonnie and Clyde. And of course in his usual comedic style, Nigel explained the names a bit as he added “My ex-wife was called Bonnie, so here was just another bitch who wouldn’t do what I asked her.”
Kidding aside, we wish you well in your love life Nigel, maybe one of these days things will slow down and he can settle down, but something tells me nothing will slow him down! You can follow Nigel Lythgoe (@dizzyfeet) on Twitter. Be sure to tune in Wednesday at 8 pm EST to see the top 20 take the stage for the first time in the competition!
