Singer Lizzo Accused Of $3xual Harassment and Weight-Shaming (See More).

Three of Lizzo’s former dancers have filed a lawsuit against her, alleging sexual harassment and a toxic work environment. The case, which was filed on Tuesday, alleges sexual, religious, and racial harassment, discrimination, assault, and false imprisonment.

Former dancers Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez are the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. Lizzo and the other suspects have been contacted for comment.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles, alleges that between 2021 and 2023, the dancers were “forced to endure sexually demeaning behavior” and “pressured into participating in disturbing sex shows.”

Among the allegations leveled against Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, are that she “pressured Ms Davis to touch the breasts” of a performer in an Amsterdam nightclub, and that Ms Davis eventually acquiesced “fearing it would harm her future on the team” if she didn’t.

Lizzo, who is known for promoting her body and self-love, is also accused of weight-shaming Ms Davis on tour, along with dance choreographer Tanisha Scott.

According to the lawsuit, Ms Davis claims the two questioned whether she was “struggling with something as she seemed less committed to her role on the dance cast.”

The queries, though never expressly stated, “gave Ms Davis the impression that she needed to explain her weight gain and disclose intimate personal details about her life in order to keep her job,” according to the lawsuit.

Shirlene Quigley, the dance team’s captain, is also accused of pushing her Christian beliefs on performers and mocking those who indulged in premarital sex, according to the lawsuit.

She is also accused of openly discussing the virginity of one of the former dancers and blogging about it on social media. The management team of production business Big Grrrl Big Touring, Inc. has also been accused of racial discrimination. It claims that black members of the dance company were “treated differently” than other team members.

They were accused of being “lazy, unprofessional, and having bad attitudes” – according to the lawsuit, these are tropes frequently used “to disparage and discourage” black women, and that other dancers were not treated in this manner.

The plaintiffs also claim that Lizzo and the production firm team underpaid them throughout Lizzo’s European tour.

They claim they were only offered 25% of their weekly compensating compensation when not performing on the tour, although other performers earned 50%, and they were also advised not to work on other projects while on tour.

According to the lawsuit, two of the three dancers implicated in the action, Ms Davis and Ms Williams, met Lizzo in March 2021 while preparing to compete on the reality TV show Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.

Ms Rodriguez, the third, was hired later in May 2021 to appear in Lizzo’s Rumours music video. She then remained a member of the dance troupe, according to the report.

Ms Davis and Ms Williams were sacked from the dance team, and Ms Rodriguez later resigned in protest of her coworkers’ alleged mistreatment.
