Lizzo’s Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Continues Following The Denial Of A Motion To Dismiss

Lizzo’s bid to have the lawsuit alleging sexual harassment against her thrown out has been turned down.

According to PEOPLE, a judge in Los Angeles County Superior Court decided on Friday to proceed with the lawsuit brought by a number of the Grammy winner’s former background dancers who claimed they were sexually harassed at work.

The decision was made in response to a lawsuit filed on August 1, 2023, in which Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez claimed they were subjected to workplace harassment, abuse, and discrimination while working for the 35-year-old musician, whose real name is Melissa Jefferson, and her Big Grrrl Big Touring Inc.

He went on to say that judge Mark H. Epstein “did dismiss a few allegations,” citing claims that dancers were put on “hold” while not on tour, that Davis was subjected to fat-shaming, and that there was a nude picture session. The three ladies are being represented by Los Angeles lawyer Ron Zambrano.

The 34-page court document made reference to Amsterdam’s well-known Bananenbar Red Light District. The plaintiffs had previously discussed an event from the previous year in which they said Lizzo demanded that her touring crew accompany her to the establishment that had nude dancers.
