Professional Dancer Disappears After Wedding Dress Shopping
Dancer Shirlene Quigley has gone missing after a brief bout of erratic behavior. The dance instructor, who toured with Beyonce on her “Crazy In Love” tour and danced for Rihanna, Chris Brown, and Missy Elliot among others, was last spotted boarding a bus to an unknown location around Midnight Sunday morning.
Prior to this, Shirlene was seen leaving her North Bergen, NJ home around 3 pm. She drove her Mercedes to midtown, parked, then did some solo wedding gown shopping at a bridal shop on 21st street.
The fact that she was wedding dress shopping is a big red flag to Shirlene’s family. Her father says that she is deeply religious and has been actively pursuing celibacy until marriage. Yet she’s made no mention to him or her mother of being in any sort of romantic relationship — much less one that is serious enough for her to be dress shopping. As he told New York Post:
“What’s really odd is that, if she got married, she would so want me and her mother to be there,” Brad Quigley said. “I don’t know what’s going on.”
Her father is extremely concerned, because she’s been acting erratically for several days now:
The dad says her behavior has been strange in recent days. When one friend asked her a minor question last week, she texted him back, “I’m spending time with God, my father, and don’t have time to deal with this right now.”
Wow. Sounds like her behavior was really erratic before her disappearance. Hopefully she’s okay!
Rhianna has even sent well-wishes Shirlene’s way, urging her fans to call if they have any info on her whereabouts:
