Singer Lizzo Countersues Former Backup Dancers Amidst Controversial Lawsuit Allegations

American singer Lizzo is taking legal action against three of her former backup dancers who had previously filed a lawsuit accusing her of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment. Crystal Williams (24), Noelle Rodriguez (25), and Arianna Davis (26) claimed that Lizzo had pressured them into degrading activities while touring Europe in February and March.

Lizzo vehemently denied these allegations, and her attorney, Marty Singer, pointed to new photos of the trio happily posing with topless performers backstage at the Crazy Horse cabaret in Paris on March 5, 2023, weeks after the alleged incidents in Amsterdam. Singer stated that these images contradicted the dancers’ claims of being forced against their will.

Furthermore, Singer referenced an audition tape by Arianna Davis, recorded on April 5, 2023, where Davis expressed positive sentiments about working with Lizzo. However, Davis later explained that she hadn’t realized the extent of the situation at the time.

Singer emphasized the inconsistencies between the dancers’ claims and the evidence, asserting that Lizzo plans to sue for malicious prosecution once the allegations are dismissed.

In response, the accusers’ attorney, Neama Rahmani, stood by their claims and mentioned other former employees who shared similar stories. The lawsuit accuses Lizzo of pressuring the dancers into interacting with sex show performers during a night out in Amsterdam.

Despite the ongoing legal battle, it’s been revealed that all three dancers had subsequently negotiated new deals with Lizzo, as documented in agreements and emails. The situation continues to unfold as both sides prepare for what seems to be a contentious legal battle.
