Lizzo Fires Back After Being Accused Of Abuse

Grammy-winning artist Lizzo, 35, addressed the lawsuit brought against her on Tuesday by three former dancers.

The dancers have filed a lawsuit against Lizzo (real name Melissa Viviane Jefferson), Big Grrrl Big Touring, Inc., and the team’s captain, Shirlene Quigley.

She wrote on Instagram that the last few days had been challenging and incredibly upsetting.

For instance, my “morals,” “work ethic,” and “respectfulness,” to use Lizzo’s words, have all been called into question.

In response to the untrue things she said about her online, she usually doesn’t respond, but these allegations were too outrageous not to address.

Three former dancers for pop star Lizzo have just spoken out, saying they were sexually harassed and belittled by the singer and her crew.

Two dancers from Lizzo’s reality show reportedly spoke out about sexual harassment and being forced to mingle with naked performers.

Lizzo said she doesn’t want to be seen “as a victim” but would like it known that she is also “not the villain.”

She said respect for women everywhere is a top priority for her.

Lizzo has maintained that the ex-employees who have made the allegations concerning her tour conduct had previously been told about their unethical and unprofessional behavior.

Lizzo said that she has to make harsh decisions occasionally but never wants to make someone feel uncomfortable or that they are not respected as an integral team member.
She said that although honest about her sexuality, she cannot tolerate it when others exploit her openness to misrepresent her.

Lizzo has said that she would never criticize or fire someone because of their weight since she knows what it’s like to be constantly body-shamed for how she looks.

Lizzo is a plus-sized woman.
