Lizzo is facing some serious trouble. Three dancers who used to work for her are taking legal action against her. They claim that Lizzo treated them badly because of their religion and race, and even made fun of their disabilities. They also say that she physically hurt them and kept them against their will. It's not just that, they were also forced to be in shows that made them uncomfortable.


The lawsuit was filed by Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez in a court in Los Angeles. They say that Lizzo's behavior was really mean and disrespectful. They were treated poorly and were even told bad things about their religion and Christianity. They were also made to feel bad about their weight and were pressured into doing things they didn't want to do.


The lawsuit names Lizzo, her production company called Big Grrrl Big Touring, Inc., and Shirlene Quigley, who is the captain of Lizzo's dance team. The dancers' lawyer, Ron Zambrano, said that Lizzo's actions were shocking and went against everything she claims to stand for. He said that Lizzo made hurtful comments about the dancers' weight and treated them in a way that was not only against the law but also made them feel really down.


According to the lawsuit, Davis and Williams met Lizzo in March 2021 when they were getting ready to be on her reality TV show called Lizzo's Watch Out for the Big Grrrls. Rodriguez joined the team in May of the same year to be in Lizzo's music video for the song "Rumors" and then became a member of her dance team. Rodriguez eventually quit the team, while Davis and Williams were fired.


As of now, Lizzo has not said anything publicly about these accusations.
