Damn Lizzo! The fallout from the shocking lawsuit against the Grammy Award-winning artist and her team continues as more people are coming forward to share their unsavory experiences.
On Tuesday, I reported Lizzo’s former dancer, Courtney Hollinquest, spoke out writing:
For clarification, I’m not a part of the lawsuit- but this was very much my experience in my time there.
Big shoutout to the dancers who had the courage to bring this to light.
The “Special” singer’s former creative director, Quin Whitney Wilson, shared Courtney’s post and added:
Echoing what @cquestt said ❤️ I haven’t been a part of that world for around three years, for a reason.
I very much applaud the dancers courage to bring this to light.
And I grieve parts of my own experience.
I’d appreciate space to understand my feelings.
Now, filmmaker Sophia Nahli Allison, who was set to direct Lizzo’s documentary, took to her Instagram Story to speak out about her experience.
I usually do not comment on anything pop culture related.
But, in 2019, I traveled a bit with Lizzo to be the director of her documentary.
I walked away after about 2 weeks. I was treated with such disrespect by her.
I witnessed how arrogant, self-centered, and unkind she is. I was not protected and was thrown into a sh***y situation with little support.
My spirit said to run as fast as you f**king can and I’m so grateful I trusted my gut.
I felt gaslit and was deeply hurt, but I’ve healed.
Reading these reports made me realize how dangerous of a situation it was.
This kind of abuse of power happens far too often.
Much love and support to the dancers.

Beyoncé canceled Lizzo too?!
Fans who attended “The Renaissance World Tour” on Tuesday night were surprised when Bey performed the remix of her hit single, “Break My Soul,” and skipped over mentioning Lizzo’s name.
The original lyrics of the song are, “Bessie Smith, Nina Simone, Betty Davis, Solange Knowles, Badu, Lizzo, Kelly Rowl’.”
Instead of mentioning Lizzo’s name, Beyoncé repeated “Badu” multiple times.
You may recall that Lizzo attended the tour in June and she shared a clip of herself becoming emotional when Beyoncé sang her name.
In that moment I was thinking about baby me, listening to Happy Face by destiny’s child and crying myself to sleep because of bullies…
I thought about Beyoncé jumping into the room where Tina Turner was waiting to meet her for the first time.
I think of what we all mean to people and how cyclical it is.
We are all so infinitesimally and maximally connected and significant. It’s an honor. Thank You @beyonce

Now, hear me out for a second because I believe Beyoncé killed two birds with one stone on Tuesday night.
Perhaps Beyoncé left Lizzo out because of the lawsuit and repeated “Badu” multiple times to pay homage to the salty “Window Seat” singer?
I dunno…I guess we’ll have to call Tyrone on that one.
Either way, Damn Lizzo is now trending on Twitter as people react to more receipts being pulled and lyrics being withdrawn.
