The dancers speak out against Lizzo

NBC News broke the story on Tuesday (August 1), and the lawsuit was filed that day through Los Angeles Superior Court.

A lawyer Ron Zambrano representing the former three dancers – Arianna Davis, Christa Williamsand Noelle Rodriguez – and called the case “disheartening” considering “everything that Lizzo stands for in public. “

“The shocking nature of how Lizzo and her management team have treated their players seems to go against everything Lizzo stands for publicly, and privately she to embarrass her dancers and put them down in ways that are not only illegal but downright deplorable.”

In the lawsuit, Davis recalled that after the South by Southwest (SXSW) show, Lizzo said the dancer was “less committed” to her role than others – whom she nicknamed “shoe thin” at her weight.

In another allegation that allegedly stemmed from an after party at an Amsterdam strip club, the singer is accused of “Inviting cast members to take turns touching the nude performers, catching dildos launched from the performers’ vaginas, and eating protruding bananas from the performers’ vaginas. “

Ultimately, the lawsuit accuses Lizzo of “pressuring Ms. Davis to touch the breasts of one of the nude women.” After the dancer shared her doubts, Lizzo reportedly started singing while “asking a very uncomfortable Ms. Davis to engage with the actor. “

Regarding this situation, the lawsuit criticizes Lizzo for having “little respect” for the “bodily autonomy” of her employees.

“Plaintiffs were outraged by how little respect Lizzo showed for the bodily independence of her employees and those around her, especially in the presence of many people she worked with. “

In addition to the above allegation, Williams accuses Lizzo of firing her after he dismissed allegations of drinking on the job. As for Rodriguez, she says the artist intimidated her by “cracking her knuckles” and “smashing her fists” when the dancer retired. Rodriguez also claims that Lizzo pushed her away while calling her a slur during the interaction.

It is necessary to add that the dance captain Shirlene Quigley is also accused “proselytize[ing] to anyone present regardless of objections,” prompting accusations of religious persecution.

After others asked her to stop, Quigley said, “No one will stop me from talking about the Lord. “

Quigley’s alleged involvement does not end with religious harassment, however. She and Lizzo are also accused of “[taking] turning “Davis” before shooting her “on the spot.”

As for the singer’s production company, the lawsuit accuses the employees of making comments “allegedly racist and homophobic.”
