Lizzo is in trouble again. Another Black woman who worked for the pop singer is suing Lizzo, Media Take Out confirmed.
Lizzo’s former wardrobe stylist, Asha Daniels – who works as a professional clothing designer, designed the wardrobe for the dancers who will be on Lizzo’s 2023 tour.
In court docs filed, Ashas is alleging that Lizzo — whose real name is Melissa Jefferson — condones a s**ualized, racially charged and illegal work environment. The suit alleges that Lizzo allowed her management team to express racist and fatphobic comments, mock Black women, deny workers medical care and forced Daniels to endure degrading s**ual harassment.
Lizzo is not the only one being sued. Her production company, Big Grrrl Big Touring, Inc. (BGBT), wardrobe manager Amanda Nomura, and tour manager Carlina Gugliotta, are also named defendants.
Asha’s lawsuit alleges that she was forced to hear “racist and fatphobic comments,” while witnessing Lizzo’s manager “mock both Lizzo and Lizzo’s background dancers on multiple occasions. Nomura would allegedly imitate the dancers and Lizzo by doing an offensive stereotypical impression of a Black woman, and would also refer to Black women on the tour as ‘dumb,’ ‘useless,’ and ‘fat.'”
