Melbourne, Apr 8 (ANI): Tahnee Chapman, a professional dancer, has been sacked from her job for gyrating her lycra-clad booty too close to Paris Hilton while performing at the 20-million-dollar Marquee nightclub in Sydney.
The 25-year-old has accused a jealous and spiteful Hilton for getting her bumped from her dream job on the first night she began podium dancing at The Star.
"I wasn't being provocative. My style is described as sultry. It involves grinding and moving - I was shaking my bum a bit and my costume had tassles on it," News.com.au quoted Chapman as saying.
"I don't hate her, but I feel that if I can't keep a job because Paris Hilton is jealous of me then what hope do I have of keeping a normal one?" she said.
According to Chapman, she was asked to go up on the podium last Saturday night to hand out glow sticks and dance with three other girls when the heiress joined them.
"The only reason I danced next to her was because there was no room. I was actually looking out for her because her heel kept slipping on the edge," Chapman said.
Originally from Rockhampton, Queensland, she was thrilled when she got offered the chance to dance at Marquee by close friend Clare McCann, who runs Elite Podium Dancers.
A promotional model for Pantene and Foxtel, she moved to Sydney, setting up home in Doonside.
Chapman also revealed that she was sent a text message by McCann.
"I'm pretty annoyed you didn't realise how inappropriate this is not to mention giving out your number and getting on the podium with Paris Hilton and reportedly shaking and shaking your ass in front of her," McCann said.
Chapman had a week's grace as a tableaux performer, but was facing the sack as she packed her bags and in tears drove through the night to some relatives on the Gold Coast.
"Tahnee Chapman was not fired, she was on a trial as a sub-contractor for a promotional model and failed to perform her job description and was therefore unsuccessful in obtaining a regular work contract," McCann told The Sunday Telegraph.
"She was never texted about nor told that Paris Hilton was upset about her jumping on the podium and this allegation is completely false," McCann added.
A Star casino spokesman said that they never received any complaint.
"We never received a complaint, but we believe the supplier who supplies dancers to the nightclub may have looked into the employment of one of the promotional staff," the spokesman added. (ANI)
