Lizzo is currently facing legal trouble as three of her former dancers have filed a lawsuit against her, her dance captain, and her production company Big Grrrl Big Touring (BGBT).
The lawsuit includes serious allegations ranging from sexual harassment to creating a hostile work environment. It’s claimed that the dancers endured sexual, religious, and racial harassment, along with discrimination, assault, and even false imprisonment. These are undoubtedly serious accusations that need to be thoroughly investigated.
Among the claims, there are allegations of fat-shaming, where Lizzo and dance choreographer Tanisha Scott reportedly questioned a dancer’s commitment due to her weight gain. Other details regarding exactly what happened in the case of each of these accusations are sparse.
Lizzo’s real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, and she’s known for promoting body positivity and self-love. It’s quite surprising to see such allegations against her, and we hope the truth will come to light as the case goes through the legal process.
As of now, Lizzo and the accused parties have not publicly responded to the claims. We’ll be keeping a close eye on how this situation unfolds.
