American rapper and singer Lizzo is facing a legal suit over sexual harassment and fat-shaming claims by three (3) of her former backup dancers.
They accuse the 35-year-old, real name Melissa Viviane Jefferson and her production company for creating a very hostile environment for them when they were working for her.
The lawsuit against the Grammy winner was filed in Los Angeles on Tuesday, August 1, 2023.
The former dancers who have taken Lizzo to court are Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez.
According to them, they were “forced to endure sexually denigrating behaviour” and “pressured into disturbing sex shows” between 2021 and 2023.
In a related development, she is already getting cancelled by music lovers and music stars.
Beyonce skipped Lizzo‘s name during the Queens Remix performance of ‘Break My Soul’ at the Renaissance World Tour on Tuesday night. However, she repeatedly mentioned Erykah Badu‘s name four times.
However, this may not be intentional since she normally skips names during this performance.
Filmmaker Sophia Nahli Allison has also come out about Lizzo‘s mistreatment from her in 2019.
“I was treated with such disrespect by her. I witnessed how arrogant, self-centered and unkind he is.”
The singer is yet to officially comment on these allegation, as expected.
