The lawsuit includes charges of s*xual, religious and racial harassment, discrimination, assault and false imprisonment.
The singer is also accused of fat-shaming and pressuring a dancer to touch another performer’s breasts.
The singer has yet to respond publicly to the allegations made in the case, which have yet to be verified by a court of law.
Lizzo and the other accused have been contacted for comment.
Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez are the former dancers who have filed a lawsuit against the singer, her dance captain and her production company Big Grrrl Big Touring (BGBT).
The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles on Tuesday, includes allegations that the dancers were pressured to attend s*x shows and interact with dancers between 2021 and 2023.
Lizzo representatives did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment on the lawsuit.
The complaint states that after a concert in Amsterdam, Lizzo and his crew attended a s*x-themed show at a club in the city’s famed Red Light District, where “Lizzo began inviting cast members to take turns touching the nude performers”. During the show, Lizzo led a chant that urged Davis to touch the breasts of one of the naked women performing in the club, the file says.
Two of the three dancers involved in the lawsuit, Ms. Davis and Ms. Williams, met Lizzo in March 2021 while preparing to participate in Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls reality show, according to the lawsuit.
“Eventually, the chorus became overwhelming and Ms. Davis, mortified, nodded in an attempt to end the singing,” the complaint states. “The plaintiffs were flabbergasted by Lizzo’s disregard for the bodily autonomy of her employees and those around her, particularly in the presence of the many people she employed.
They claim that they were offered only 25% of their weekly compensatory salary during the time they were away from the tour, while the other artists received 50%, and that they were told not to work on any other projects during the tour.
The third, Ms. Rodriguez, was hired later, in May 2021, to star in Lizzo’s Rumours music video. She then continued to be part of the dance troupe, the lawsuit adds.
Ms. Davis and Ms. Williams were dismissed from the dance team, while Ms. Rodriguez later resigned due to her alleged treatment by her colleagues.
