Lizzomakes it clear her backup dancers will face repercussions if they don’t do what she asks, even if that means getting freaky at a live sex show … at least, that’s what 2 of the women suing her are claiming.
The singer’s former backup dancers, Arianna Davis, and Crystal Williams, joined us Wednesday on “TMZ Live” and told us about their experiences working under Lizzo.
Arianna and Crystal accused Lizzo of coercing backup dancers to participate in nude cabaret shows … and they say there’s an unspoken feeling among the group of having to bend to Lizzo’s demands or be fired if they don’t play ball.
As they allege in the lawsuit, sometimes that means eating bananas out of sex performers’ vaginas in Amsterdam — and they told us dancers who went along with Lizzo’s idea of fun were rewarded with lavish private jet trips to tropical locations.

On the flip side, they claim dancers who didn’t feel comfortable doing everything Lizzo wanted would be threatened with termination.
As for why they’re no longer working with Lizzo — Crystal says she was accused of drinking before performances, and Arianna claims Lizzo body-shamed her for gaining weight … and she claims Lizzo used an admission of an eating disorder to justify firing her.
Lizzo has yet to comment publicly, or respond to the lawsuit in court … but her accusers have a lot to say here.
