Lizzo says she’s quitting music amid harassment claims

Music


Lizzo isn’t feeling well.

The Grammy winner, who is currently facing a sexual harassment lawsuit, seemingly left the music industry via an Instagram post she shared Friday night.

“I’m getting tired of being trolled by everyone in my life and on the internet,” she began her emotional statement. “All I want to do is make music, make people happy, and help the world be a little better than I found it.” But I’m starting to feel like the world doesn’t want me.

“I am constantly confronted with lies being told about me for my influence and my opinions… my character is criticized by people who do not know me and who disrespect my name,” she further lamented .

She concluded: “I didn’t sign up for this shit – I QUIT.”

Page Six did not immediately receive a response from Lizzo’s reps regarding the head-turning post.

Her statement came shortly after lawyers for her former backup dancers — Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez — criticized her for performing at a President Biden re-election fundraiser Thursday night.

“It is shameful that Lizzo would be chosen to headline an event like this in the midst of such egregious 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 sued the “Truth Hurts” singer in August 2023 for creating a toxic work environment and sexual harassment.

In one case of harassment that allegedly took place in Amsterdam’s red light district, the suit claimed that “Lizzo began inviting the actors to take turns touching the naked performers, catching dildos thrown from the performers’ vaginas and to eat bananas protruding from the artists’ vaginas. »

Davis also claimed she was “pressured” by Lizzo to fondle a nude performer’s breasts. She further alleged that the musician shamed her for gaining weight.

Hours after the lawsuit became public, Lizzo’s former creative director Quinn Whitney Wilson and dancer Courtney Hollinquest claimed they were subjected to similar situations.

Then, documentarian Sophia Nahli claimed she “gave up” on working with Lizzo after two weeks because she was “treated with such disrespect.”

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 my expression, but I cannot accept or allow people to use that openness to make me into someone I am not,” she said. “There is nothing I take more seriously than the respect we deserve as women in the world. »

And although Lizzo threatened to sue, the allegations continued to flood in. 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 verbally and physically abusive manager.

While the accusations are certainly shocking, not everyone thinks Lizzo acted so inappropriately.

Eighteen of its employees signed statements of support for the pop star that disputed the harassment allegations in October 2023.

Several months later, Lizzo appeared in good spirits during her presentation at the 2024 Grammys.
