In those lawsuit, they also said that they as dancers were put on more extreme rules than other performers of the tour. But, Lizzo defends and called the women's claims as ‘false allegations’ and ‘sensationalized stories’.

Reported by CBS News, Arianna Davis, one of the dancers, said that when on tour in Amsterdam, the performers went to a show in the red light district, and got pressured with Noelle Rodriguez to interact with a nude performer, they constrained to did it because fear of losing her job. But again, Lizzo denial and said that she usually chosed to not respond a false allegations but 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. So, she declared that sometimes she has to make hard decisions but it's never makes anyone feel uncomfortable or like they aren't valued as an important part of the team.

Another controversy came from Arianna Davis’s claims that at one point during the tour, Lizzo had expressed to her that she was worried about her because she had gained weight. Arianna Davis judges that statement of Lizzo is a form of a very nuanced fat-shaming. But again and again, Lizzo denied those claims and said that there is nothing she takes more seriously than the respect of women in the world because she knows what it body shamed feels. So, she would absolutely never criticize or terminate an employee because of their weight.
