His career seems to be declining at the moment, and there are speculations that he isn’t doing well financially, which could be one of the reasons he sued Michael Jackson for molesting him many years after he died.
He has always been a star in his profession as a choreographer since he was a child so we wish him the very best and hope the future is kind enough to his dancing career.
