Her statement came shortly after an attorney for her former backup dancers — Ariana Davis, Crystal Williams and Noel Rodriguez — criticized her performance at a fundraiser for President Biden's re-election on Thursday night.

“It is a shame that Lizzo was chosen to headline an event like this amid such scandalous allegations.” Ron Zambrano told NewsNation. “Without getting into politics, I can't imagine why anyone would want Lizzo to represent them in any way given her reprehensible behavior. It's just a terrible look.”

Davis, Rodriguez and Williams filed a lawsuit against the “Truth Hurts” singer in August 2023 for creating a toxic work environment and sexual harassment.

In one instance of harassment that allegedly occurred in Amsterdam's red light district, the lawsuit alleged, “Lizzo began inviting cast members to take turns touching naked performers, grabbing dildos that were being released from performers' vaginas, and eating bananas protruding from performers' vaginas.” “

Davis also claimed she was “pressured” by Lizzo to fondle a female performer's nude breasts. She also claimed that she was body-shamed for her weight gain by the musician.

The Emmy winner maintained her innocence, calling the allegations “outrageous” in a lengthy statement she shared on social media on August 3, 2023.

“I am very open about my sexuality and expressing myself, but I cannot accept or allow people to use this openness to make me a different person,” she stressed. “There is nothing I take more seriously than the respect we deserve as women in the world.”

Although Lizzo threatened to take countermeasures, the accusations continued to surface. In September 2023, Asha Daniels, who previously worked in the wardrobe department for the singer's 2023 tour, filed a lawsuit accusing her of turning a blind eye to a manager who verbally and physically abused her.
