Cody Simpson

'DWTS' Has Stripped Me Of My Privacy

EXCLUSIVE

Cody Simpson has lost his right of privacy while doing "Dancing With the Stars."  He cannot remove his mic while he's on the phone, while he's talking business, while he reveals his most inner thoughts.   The only exception -- taking a dump.

The contract Cody signed makes the NSA look like child's play.  We got a copy because Cody's only 17 and the doc has to be filed with the court.

Cody agrees to wear a mic during rehearsal's and training, with only a bathroom break out.

The Australian singer gets a guaranteed $125K ... which goes up the longer he stays on the show.  It caps out at $50K per week if he's in the finals.

And, "DWTS" cleverly figured out a way to block Jimmy Fallon from hijacking ABC stars.  Cody specifically agreed to appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Good Morning America," and "The View."

Here's how onerous the deal is ... "DWTS" has final cut on Cody's hairstyle.

HE didnt agree to anything. He's a minor and cannot sign a contract. His parents obviously did it .

You whiny little brat.....there's only 5,000 other blond surfer kids in Cali alone who would be thrilled to have this gig. Don't worry you will last a few weeks on the show due to boycrazy girls like Beibervegashoho voting for you multiple times.

I don't understand the point of this article. Has he been enslaved or tricked? He didn't sign this contract of his own free will after his lawyers and agents looked it over? Should we send in the National Guard to wrestle the microphone off of him?

What are you trying to say?

He needs to quit whining and enjoy the spotlight while it's on him. I've never heard of him.

DWTS thinks they were being clever? LOL Whoever is on this show will be banned from doing Jimmy's show unless NBC has finally realized that doing that was a bad idea the other times they tried it.

Cody there is an assistant manager position open at your local TGIF - no lack of privacy concerns there, in fact complete anonymity - no sense in continuing with your current hellish occupation

He's a 17 year old Aussie singer (a bad one) whom Flo Rida discovered. Take a look on youtube.
