August 2, 2023

Pop star Lizzo is being sued by three of her former dancers over claims including sexual harassment and a hostile work environment.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles on Tuesday, includes accusations of sexual, religious and racial harassment, discrimination, assault and false imprisonment.

It alleges that her Dancers were “forced to endure sexually denigrating behaviour” and were “pressured into participating in disturbing sex shows” between 2021 and 2023.

Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez are the former dancers bringing the lawsuit.

Lizzo – whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson – known for celebrating her body and self-love – is also accused, along with dance choreographer Tanisha Scott, of weight-shaming Ms Davis on tour.

Neither Lizzo, her lawyer, nor her Management has reacted to the lawsuit.
