Lizzo is accused by former dancers of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment.

Lizzo has been sued by three former dancers who accuse the Grammy winner of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment.

Lizzo is accused of pressuring dancers to interact with nude performers at an Amsterdam nightclub and humiliating one of them for gaining weight before firing her, according to a civil lawsuit filed on Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Numerous allegations are made by the plaintiffs Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez, including assault, false imprisonment, racial, religious, and disability discrimination.

The complaint was submitted on Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court against Lizzo, whose legal name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, and her production company Big Grrrl Big Touring, Inc. (BGBT). The dance team captain for Lizzo, Shirlene Quigley, is also mentioned in the lawsuit.

“The stunning nature of how Lizzo and her management team treated their performers seems to go against everything Lizzo stands for publicly, while privately she weight-shames her dancers and demeans them in ways that are not only illegal but absolutely demoralizing,” said attorney Ron Zambrano.

According to the complaint, Lizzo forced her dancers to participate in a nude photo shoot for her “Watch Out for the Big Grrrls” dance competition show, attend nude performances, and touch nude dancers in clubs in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.

Dancers claim Lizzo misled them into going to a nude cabaret bar by hiding information about the occasion they were attending. Additionally, the plaintiffs claim that BGBT management discriminates against the Black dance team members in terms of both pay and treatment.

Davis claims that Lizzo’s team made derogatory remarks about her weight gain.

In the lawsuit, Quigley, a judge on Lizzo’s reality series “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls,” is charged with forcing her Christian beliefs on dancers.

According to a court document, Quigley called Davis a “non-believer” and threatened his coworkers, saying, “No job and no one will stop me from talking about the Lord.” Additionally, she is charged with making a dancer’s virginity public in the workplace, during interviews, and on social media.

Rodriguez resigned due to the alleged working environment, while Davis, Williams, and Rodriguez claim they were fired.

At the time Rodriguez resigned, she said “Lizzo aggressively approached Ms. Rodriquez, cracking her knuckles, balling her fists” and “feared that Lizzo intended to hit her and would have done so if one of the other dancers had not intervened.”

Lizzo won the Grammy for record of the year earlier this year for her hit song “About Damn Time.” Her fourth studio album, “Special,” from 2022, was supported by a world tour that ended last month. Truth Hurts, About Damn Time, Juice, Good As Hell, and 2 Be Loved are among Lizzo’s best-known songs.
