 Singer Grimes came out publicly in support of Lizzo as she faces a sexual harassment lawsuit brought against her by three former backup dancers.

Grimes shared on X, formerly Twitter, that she’s had nothing but positive experiences with Lizzo for years. “I love Lizzo. Not saying I don’t believe ppl when bad things happen, but I had dancers mistreated on my watch in ways I didn’t find out about until way later. Mebe sh** is bad,” the 35-year-old pop singer wrote on social media.

“But loyalty matters to me. Lizzo was kind to me and others for a decade before she was ‘cool,’ and she checked in on me when no one cared. I’ve only ever seen exemplary behavior from her, especially when everyone was hating on me and she was on top of the world. There was no reason for her to check in, besides to be a good person. Just my two cents.”

“I recall when she first blew up being so happy because I’d never known such an admirable person to find fame in the music industry. I struggle to believe she would have so radically changed tired of a culture that seeks to destroy it’s greatest virtues. Lizzo is amazing,” Grimes added.

On August 1, dancers Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez filed a lawsuit against Lizzo and Big Grrrl Big Touring Inc. that included accusations of body-shaming, racial and religious discrimination, and being pressured to interact with nude dancers during a live sex show.


Lizzo issued a statement in response to the accusations.

“Usually I choose not to respond to false allegations but these are as unbelievable as they sound and too outrageous to not be addressed,” the rapper wrote. “These sensationalized stories are coming from former employees who have already publicly admitted that they were told their behavior on tour was inappropriate and unprofessional.”

“I am very open with my sexuality and expressing myself but I cannot accept or allow people to use that openness to make me out to be something I am not,” Lizzo continued. “There is nothing I take more seriously than the respect we deserve as women in the world. I know what it feels like to be body shamed on a daily basis and would absolutely never criticize or terminate an employee because of their weight.”

“I’m hurt but I will not let the good work I’ve done in the world be overshadowed by this,” she said in conclusion. “I want to thank everyone who has reached out in support to lift me up during this difficult time.”
