Lizzo To Sue Former Backup Dancers For ‘Malicious Prosecution’ In Response To Harassment Lawsuit

Lizzo is fighting back! The artist’s lawyer claims she intends to countersue for the plaintiffs’ claimed hypocritical behavior after the singer was sued earlier this month for alleged sexual, racial, and religious harassment.

Former dancers and now Plaintiffs: Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez claim Lizzo pressured them into attending Crazy Horse’s topless cabaret show on March 5, in Paris, according to the lawsuit, abc7 reported. On Wednesday, Lizzo’s attorney Marty Singer shared photos of the alleged “happily cavorting backstage” with performers.

“The lawsuit is a sham,” Lizzo spat back in response to the lawsuit. 

Three former Big Grrrls dancers filed a complaint against the “Truth Hurts” singer, the Big Grrrls Touring INC. production company and the dance team captain Shirlene Quigley on Aug. 1, alleging sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment.

“Lizzo began inviting cast members to take turns touching the nude performers, catching ****** launched from the performers’ vaginas, and eating bananas protruding from the performers’ vaginas,” Davis, Williams and Rodriguez conveyed in their suit.

“These images showing the three plaintiffs gleefully reveling backstage after the topless show were taken after their February 2023 visit to Bananenbar in Amsterdam that they complain about in their lawsuit,” Lizzo said. 

The plaintiffs allegedly argued in their lawsuit that the 35-year-old allegedly “failed to mention when inviting the dancers to this performance was that it was a nude cabaret bar.”

Firing back at Lizzo, Neama Rahmani, the plaintiffs’ attorney, addressed the singer’s claimed statement.

“Our clients aren’t afraid of Singer or his empty threats or his victim shaming. I’ve handled thousands of cases, including prosecuting drug cartels, so we have no plans to back down,” she said.

“We’ve addressed all these instances where the plaintiffs appear to be happy alongside Lizzo during their time working with her,” Rahmani continued. “Of course, they wanted to keep their jobs. They had bills to pay just like everyone else, but they finally had enough of the abuse. We stand by every claim in the lawsuit and look forward to trial.”
