Lizzo returns to the Grammy stage six months after being accused of a toxic workplace, weight-shaming and sexually harassing her concert team

Platinum-selling singer Lizzo made a rare public appearance at the Grammys on Sunday, presenting an award in front of thousands in person and millions on TV just six months after her dancers accused the singer of sexual harassment.

The musical artist, whose full name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, said she denies “each and every allegation” leveled against her by dancers Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez in September.

The 35-year-old appeared at the ceremony on Sunday to present Best R&B Song at the awards show to SZA.

The singer cheered and even briefly danced to her own song, ‘About Damn Time’, before presenting.

She did not address the controversy before announcing the award. Lizzo and SZA embraced the Grammy-winning New Jersey singer.

Platinum singer Lizzo made a rare public appearance at the Grammys on Sunday, presenting an award in front of thousands in person and millions on TV just six months after a sexual harassment lawsuit was filed against her.

Responding to the lawsuit, the Grammy-winning singer said Davis, Williams and Rodriguez were “guilty of unclean hands” for committing ethical violations related to the lawsuit.

In August, Davis, Williams and Rodriguez said in a court filing that Lizzo pressured them to get involved with nude performers at an Amsterdam club; and shamed one of them about her weight gain before firing her.

In the civil lawsuit filed on August 1, the trio accused Lizzo of pressuring her dancers to get physical with sex workers at a club in Amsterdam’s Red Light District last February while on tour in the area was.

The plaintiffs made numerous allegations, including sexual, religious and racial harassment, disability discrimination, assault and false imprisonment.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and names Lizzo, her production company Big Grrrl Big Touring, Inc., and Shirlene Quigley, captain of the artist’s dance team.

The court filing alleges that after performing a concert in Amsterdam, Lizzo and her crew attended a sexually themed performance at a club in the city’s notorious Red Light District where “Lizzo began inviting cast members to take turns to touch the naked artists.’

During the show, Lizzo led a chant that pushed Davis to touch the breasts of one of the naked women performing at the club, the filing states.

The dancers said they were pressured to ‘take turns touching the naked performers, catching dildos launched from the performers’ vaginas, and eating bananas protruding from the performers’ vaginas.

‘Eventually the chorus became overwhelming, and an outraged Ms. Davis acquiesced in an effort to end the chants,’ the complaint states.

It continued: ‘Plaintiffs were amazed at how little regard Lizzo showed for the bodily autonomy of her employees and those around her, particularly in the presence of many people she employed.’

The About Damn Time singer – who is also being sued by a former wardrobe assistant over toxic workplace claims – said in her response that the dancers who are suing her ‘sanctioned, consented, condoned and/or sanctioned the acts’ at the time that it took place.

The Good as Hell performer said that contracts the dancers signed when they joined her tour were ‘subject to arbitration’, giving them the chance to ‘mediate in good faith’ before dealing with the case going public.

Lizzo’s legal team said the artist’s business had implemented “anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policies and complaint procedures” that the dancers “failed” to follow via internal protocols.

Lizzo said there was no evidence that the dancers suffered any damage or losses as a result of the singer’s actions.

A spokesperson for the singer, Stefan Friedman, said the artist would vigorously defend herself amid the allegations.

“This is the first step in a legal process in which Lizzo and her team will demonstrate that they have always practiced what they preached,” Friedman said. ‘Whether it’s promoting body positivity, leading a safe and supportive workplace or protecting individuals from any form of harassment.

‘Any and all claims to the contrary are ridiculous, and we look forward to proving them in a court of law.’

The lawyer representing the dancers, Neama Rahmani, said in a statement to DailyMail.com that ‘Lizzo’s response consists simply of objections that have nothing to do with the case.’

Rahmani said that “the most important takeaway” from the recent legal proceedings “is that Lizzo agrees to our clients’ demand for a jury trial.”

“We look forward to taking our case to court and having a panel of her peers decide who is telling the truth, Lizzo and her team who continue to shame the victims or the plaintiffs and so many others who have come forward to share similar stories of abuse and harassment.’

In a rebuttal statement she posted on Instagram last month, Lizzo called the accusations “sensational” and said the dancers suing her “have already publicly acknowledged that they were told their behavior on tour was inappropriate and unprofessional.”

She added: ‘Normally I choose not to respond to false allegations but this is as unbelievable as it sounds and too outrageous not to be addressed… I’m hurt but I won’t let the good work that I have done in the world, do not be overshadowed by this.’
