Lizzo says she’s quitting music amid harassment claims



Lizzo is not feeling good as Hell.

The Grammy winner, who is currently the subject of a sexual harassment lawsuit, seemingly quit the music industry via an Instagram post she shared Friday night.

“I’m getting tired of putting up with being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet,” she began her emotional statement. “All I want is to make music and make people happy and help the world be a little better than how I found it. But I’m starting to feel like the world doesn’t want me in it.”

“I’m constantly up against lies being told about me for clout & views … my character being picked apart by people who don’t know me and disrespecting my name,” she further lamented.

She concluded, “I didn’t sign up for this s–t — I QUIT.”

Page Six did not immediately hear back from Lizzo’s representatives regarding the head-turning post.

Her statement came shortly after attorneys for her former backup dancers — Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez — slammed her for performing at a re-election fundraiser for President Biden Thursday evening.

“It’s shameful that Lizzo would be chosen to headline an event like this amid such egregious allegations,” Ron Zambrano told NewsNation. “Without getting into the politics, I can’t imagine why anyone would want Lizzo representing them in any way given her reprehensible behavior. It’s just a terrible look.”

Davis, Rodriguez and Williams sued the “Truth Hurts” singer in August 2023 for creating a toxic work environment and sexual harassment.

In one instance of harassment that allegedly occurred in Amsterdam’s Red Light District, the suit claimed “Lizzo began inviting cast members to take turns touching the nude performers, catching dildos launched from the performers’ vaginas, and eating bananas protruding from the performers’ vaginas.”

Davis also claimed she was “pressured” by Lizzo to fondle a nude performer’s breasts. She further alleged she was shamed for gaining weight by the musician.
