Lizzo has recently filed for the dismissal of a sexual harassment lawsuit brought against her by three of her former dancers.
She has also requested that, if the case proceeds, it be decided by a trial by jury in the Los Angeles Superior Court.
The former dancers—Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez—have accused Lizzo of body shaming, sexual harassment, fostering a toxic work environment, and pressuring them to interact with nude performers at a club in Amsterdam.
The lawsuit names Lizzo, her production company Big Grrrl Big Touring, Inc., and Shirlene Quigley, who was the captain of Lizzo’s dance team at the time. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
A former wardrobe assistant of Lizzo has also filed a lawsuit against her, alleging the creation of a toxic workplace environment.
Lizzo has vehemently denied all of the allegations made against her.
She has countered by accusing her former dancers of ethical misconduct in relation to the lawsuit.
Lizzo has asserted that all actions performed by her former dancers during her shows were not only approved but also endorsed by the dancers themselves.
Furthermore, Lizzo pointed out that the contracts signed by her former employees included a provision that allowed for a process of good faith mediation before resorting to public litigation.
