Lizzo Plans To Sue Backup Dancers Who Accused Her Of Sexual Harassment & Creating A Hostile Work Environment

Multi-Grammy Award winner Lizzo isn’t going down without a fight!

According to reports, she plans to sue her former dancers — Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez – for “malicious prosecution” after they recently brought some serious allegations against her.

As previously reported, fans of Lizzo were shocked when she was hit with a lawsuit from three of her former dancers earlier this month. In the suit, the women accuse the “Truth Hurts” artist of many harmful acts such as sexual harassment, body shaming, and creating a hostile work environment. According to the dancers, during one crazy incident with Lizzo, she pressured Davis to touch a nude performer at an Amsterdam adult club.

Prior to allegedly urging her dancer to “touch the breasts of one of the nude women.”

The suit says that Lizzo encouraged others to,

“take turns touching the nude performers, catching dildos launched from the performers’ vaginas, and eating bananas protruding from the performers’ vaginas.”

As if that isn’t bad enough, the women allege that when Lizzo’s tour made it to Paris, she tricked them into attending another adult show by failing to mention it was a “nude cabaret bar.”

The plaintiffs claim they were “shocked that Lizzo would conceal the nature of the event from them, robbing them of the choice not to participate.”

However, Lizzo’s legal team says otherwise.

Attorney Marty Singer claims newly surfaced images of the Paris debacle show the alleged victims “happily carousing” and “gleefully reveling” backstage with the performers of the topless cabaret show. According to Singer, the images prove that the women were not forced to attend the event, but instead, were “happily cavorting backstage.”

He added that they also decided to work with Lizzo again a few weeks after the incident for the third leg of her tour.

Noelle Rodriguez

However, the attorney for the alleged victims – Neama Rahmani – says the ladies were all smiles in the Paris images because they “wanted to keep their jobs” and “had bills to pay just like everyone else.”

Rahmani added that they “finally had enough of the abuse” and “stand by every claim in the lawsuit and look forward to trial.”
