A complaint against Lizzo was just filed in California Superior Court by three women, according to court documents obtained by XXL on Tuesday (Aug. 1). Numerous accusations are made against the “About Damn Time” musician in the lawsuit. The allegations include failing to stop or address a hostile work environment, sexual harassment, racial harassment, and harassment based on one’s religion. Lizzo, her tour firm Big Grrrl Big Tour, and Shirlene Quigley, the leader of Lizzo’s dance crew, are named as defendants in the lawsuit. Lizzo is being sued by one of the women who claims the singer brought up the dancer’s weight increase.

According to the lawsuit, the former dancer claims that after recording a meeting due to an eye issue, she was later reprimanded and fired. The lawsuit stated, “Lizzo became furious, hurling expletives at the group and stated that she was going to go around the room, person-by-person until someone told Lizzo who made the recording.” The plaintiffs are asking for an undisclosed dollar amount for unspecified punitive damages, medical costs, and attorneys’ fees.
