Meet Arianna Davis, One Of The Dancers Suing Lizzo
Arianna Davis is one of the former dancers of Lizzo who has sued her. Allegations and claims, including the incident at the Amsterdam club, were listed in detail in the lawsuit. At one point, it was alleged that during the night, Lizzo “turned her attention to Arianna and began pressuring Arianna to touch the breasts of one of the nude women.”
Arianna had declined various times but the singer had “goaded” her to touch the nude woman and claimed the chanting “grew louder and more strident, demanding a visibly uncomfortable Ms. Davis to engage with the performer.” After documenting a meeting with other dancers and the vocalist in April, she was later fired. The dancer decided to videotape because she had an eye problem that made her feel “disoriented.”
Upon finding out, the suit states, “Lizzo became furious, hurling expletives at the group and stated that she was going to go around the room, person-by-person until someone told Lizzo who made the recording.” Arianna was ‘berated’ and then immediately dismissed on the spot despite admitting to taping but insisting the video was deleted and that she never intended any damage.
Filming of the reality TV show began in August 2021. During one episode, contestants of the show were told they would be required to participate in a nude photo shoot, which distressed Davis. “Ms. Davis broke down in tears on set while struggling to choose between a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity and putting her body on display against her will,” the lawsuit states. “This experience foreshadowed the sexually charged and uncomfortable environment Lizzo’s employees would be forced to endure.”
Arianna claims that Lizzo and choreographer Tanisha Scott made “thinly veiled” remarks about her weight on April 21 when they accused her of not being devoted to her work on the dance team. According to the lawsuit, Arianna said Lizzo brought up her weight during the South by Southwest music festival. Her co-dancer was let go by Lizzo’s production manager a week later in a hotel lobby “under the guise of budget cuts,” according to the lawsuit.
According to the complaint, Arianna was let go on May 3 after filming a discussion the dancers had with Lizzo regarding their performances.
