Lizzo’s Rep Slams Attorney Representing Her Former Dancers In Sexual Harassment Lawsuit For Criticizing Singer’s ‘I Quit’ Post As ‘Another Outburst Seeking Attention’

Lizzo’s Rep Slams Attorney Representing Her Former Dancers In Sexual Harassment Lawsuit For Criticizing Singer’s ‘I Quit’ Post As ‘Another Outburst Seeking Attention’

Superstar singer Lizzo’s legal representation is firing back at one of her critics.

The musician’s lawyer condemned remarks made by an attorney representing plaintiffs in an ongoing sexual harassment lawsuit against her, suggesting that the legal professional keep the suit focused on his clients and not his personal opinions.

Lizzo’s spokesperson, Stefan Friedman, reportedly wrote in response to his colleague  Ron Zambrano:

“With nearly half his case dismissed, 18 independent witnesses siding with Lizzo and no settlement on the way to get him his tasty contingency fee, Ron has started making wild personal attacks that have absolutely nothing to do with the clients who he is supposedly representing,”

He added:

“We would humbly recommend that Ron start representing his clients and stop representing just himself.”

Friedmanadmonishment comes after Zambrano didn’t hold back while blasting Lizzo’s recent declaration that she’s “quitting” music. As we previously reported the songstress, real name Melissa Viviane Jefferson, 35, took to her social media last week to express frustrations about being the subject of ongoing industry and internet jokes.

Shortly after the “Special” singer made the post, Zambrano used the moment to call her character into question, insisting she does some self-reflection. The attorney wrote:

“It’s a joke that Lizzo would say she is being bullied by the internet when she should instead be taking an honest look at herself. Her latest post is just another outburst seeking attention and trying to deflect from her own failings as she continues to blame everyone else for the predicament she is in. Lizzo’s legal and public relations strategy is a failure, so she is desperately trying to play the victim. She has thrown these childish tantrums before. No one actually believes she is quitting music. But she should quit sexually harassing, shaming and bullying her employees and finally accept responsibility for her actions.”

He continued:

 “She can make all of this go away simply by seizing the opportunity here to set an example, own up to her mistakes, pay what’s due to those she’s wronged and work on becoming a better person. Celebrity toxicity is poisoning the entertainment industry with Diddy and Dan Schneider being the latest examples, and Lizzo’s conduct will not be tolerated, either. There is no more safe place in society for this sort of behavior as the entire industry is in for a reckoning for permitting such vile treatment of employees in the workplace.”

As we’ve been covering, three of Lizzo’s former dancers, Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez, sued the singer for emotional damages in a bombshell sexual harassment lawsuit filed in July of last year. The entertainers accused the celeb of coercing them into attending sex parties where they were pressured to physically touch nude dancers. Additionally, they accused the musician of fostering a toxic work environment, alleging Lizzo often threatened to terminate their jobs if they gained weight.

Lizzo has continued to maintain her innocence, and her attorneys reportedly claimed that she’s considering taking legal action against her accusers over the “false allegations” and “sensationalized stories.” Her legal team has already motioned to dismiss all the charges, though the court battle is reportedly ongoing.
