Lizzo seeks dismissal of former stylist’s ‘baseless’ harassment and discrimination lawsuit

by Patria

Lizzo’s legal team has filed a motion to dismiss the harassment and discrimination lawsuit filed by her former wardrobe stylist.

Asha Daniels, who worked in the wardrobe department on Lizzo s tour this year, sued the Juice singer and her tour team in September for unlawful retaliation, race and sex discrimination, and creating hostile work environment.

Lizzo’s attorneys filed a motion for dismissal of the “meritless and frivolous” lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday.

In legal documents, the attorneys claimed the former “disgruntled” employee “failed to perform her assigned work and ultimately simply skipped and refused to show up for work.” They claimed Daniels was fired after less than three weeks of employment for “abandoning her post” on the day of Lizzo’s concert in Paris, France, in March.

They argued that because Daniels “is a New York resident who worked for a Delaware corporation in Europe,” the case should also be dismissed because it was filed in the wrong jurisdiction.

“This motion was expected and is yet another Hail Mary by Lizzo’s team to try to pass the buck to the victims, as she has done with the three other plaintiffs who have sued her for similar allegations of harassment, disability discrimination and retaliatory termination,” Daniels’ attorney Ron Zambrano said in a statement in response to the motion to dismiss.

“Lizzo and her lawyers can continue to try to rationalize her illegal and deplorable conduct, but we remain committed to seeking justice for our clients and look forward to our day in court where Lizzo can explain her behavior in a public forum.”

Lizzo was sued in August by former dancers Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez for sexual, religious and racial harassment, disability discrimination, weight shaming and creation of a hostile work environment. She has denied the charges.
