US pop star Lizzo has said allegations by three of her ex-dancers, including sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment, are “false”.

The singer called the last few days “gut-wrenchingly difficult and overwhelmingly disappointing”.

“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 lawsuit also includes accusations of religious and racial harassment.

Discrimination, assault and false imprisonment are also listed, and the singer is also accused of fat-shaming and pressuring a dancer to touch a performer’s breasts.

Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez are the former dancers bringing the case against the singer, her dance captain and her production company Big Grrrl Big Touring (BGBT).
