Lizzo To Countersue Backup Dancers

Attorneys for Lizzo have confirmed that the superstar musician will countersue her former backup dancers for “malicious prosecution” over their lawsuit.

Earlier this month, the rapper/writer was sued for sexual, religious and racial harassment, disability discrimination, weight shaming and creating a hostile work environment by former dancers Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez.

On Wednesday (8.23,) the hitmaker’s lawyer Marty Singer issued a statement to multiple outlets, citing photos and videos that supposedly contradict the dancers’ claims and confirm his client’s plans to sue.

According to Singer “These irrefutable photos and videos, along with additional substantial evidence, prove the glaring contradictions between what the plaintiffs claim in their bogus lawsuit and what is actually proven by the facts.” “The lawsuit is a sham. Lizzo intends to sue for malicious prosecution after she prevails and these specious claims are dismissed.”

While the lawsuit claimed that the dancers were pressured into touching naked performers at a strip club in Amsterdam while on tour, Singer shared photos of the trio “happily cavorting backstage” with performers of a Paris cabaret weeks after The Netherlands’ incident.

In representing the dancers, Neama Rahmani, insisted that her clients stand by every claim in the face of Singer’s “victim shaming,” stating:

“Let’s see if Singer can actually try a case in a courtroom instead of the media.” “The plaintiffs merely wanted to keep their jobs until they finally had enough. Arianna, Noelle and Crystal were brave enough to come out with their stories and they don’t plan to back down in the face of these bullying tactics by Lizzo’s attorney. Our clients remain steadfast and look forward to their day in court.”

Earlier this month, Lizzo called the allegations “outrageous” and insisted she was “not the villain” she had been painted as by her former employees.
