Lawyers for ex-Lizzo’s dancers say they’re reviewing more complaints

Three of Lizzo’s former backup dancers have filed a lawsuit against the “Juice” singer, her production company and dance captain Shirlene Quigley, alleging sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment. In the suit, Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez describe various incidents in which Lizzo, who is known for promoting body positivity, allegedly weight-shamed and mistreated her employees, as first reported by NBC News.

Lizzo addressed the accusations by her former dancers, calling their allegations “false” and “outrageous” in an Aug. 3 statement posted on her social accounts. In response, the plaintiffs’ attorney, Ron Zambrano, pushed back, accusing her of “flagrantly violating the law.”

Most recently, the lawyer representing the three dancers told NBC News on Aug. 8 that they have been reviewing new complaints and allegations from at least six people who say they have worked with Lizzo.
