Three former dancers of Lizzo have filed a lawsuit against the singer, alleging sexual harassment, weight-shaming, and creating a hostile work environment.
Arianna Davis and Crystal Williams filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday. They allege that Lizzo made inappropriate comments about their weight, body, and appearance. They also allege that Lizzo created a hostile work environment by allowing her dancers to be subjected to sexual harassment and racial discrimination.
The lawsuit states that Davis was subjected to sexual harassment by a male dancer on Lizzo’s team. When she complained to Lizzo, she was told that she was “too sensitive” and that she should “just get over it.”
Williams alleges that Lizzo made comments about her weight that made her feel humiliated and degraded. She also alleges that Lizzo once told her that she was “too big” to be a dancer on her team.
