A couple of days after some of Lizzo’s former backup dancers filed a shocking lawsuit against her, claiming that she sexually harassed and mistreated them, she released a statement in which she denied doing anything wrong.
On August 3, the “About Damn Time” singer said that these accusations were “too outrageous” not to talk about on her Instagram account.
She then gave them a long answer.
All of the women say that Lizzo fired them this spring.
They say the four-time Grammy winner fired one because of a bad attitude and another because she recorded Lizzo giving her performance notes and then quickly deleted the video when she realized what she had done.
In one shocking part of the civil complaint, the three people say that their bosses forced them to eat a banana from a performer’s vagina at a sex show in Amsterdam.
They also say they were forced to work “grueling” 12-hour days and were wrongly accused of things like drinking on the job while being laughed at and made to feel bad about their bodies.
