"Lizzo's the boss. She was the one that was leading a lot of this," he said in a recent interview with Advocate Channel.

Why celebrities great 'til they gotta be great?

In case you missed it, Grammy-winning singer/rapper/flutist Lizzo has found herself embroiled in a bombshell lawsuit lodged by three former dancers alleging a disturbing tapestry of mistreatment, body-shaming, and sexual harassment. This legal saga has ignited a chorus of voices, with prominent figures like Neama Rahmani, the plaintiff’s lawyer, stepping forward to shed light on the grim ordeal.

Rahmani's commitment to this case is underscored by its moral imperative. "We took this case because it was a righteous case. The plaintiffs wanted lawyers that can handle the media attention that would come along with it," he said during an interview with Out's sister network the Advocate Channel.

At the epicenter of this legal maelstrom are Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez, the plaintiffs who have laid bare the allegations. The lawsuit paints a troubling portrait, outlining grievous claims of sexual harassment and an inhospitable work environment.

A focal point of Rahmani's assertions centers on Lizzo herself, who wields significant authority within her sphere. "Lizzo's the boss," he said. "She was the one that was leading a lot of this. She's the one who is allowing this type of unlawful, illegal, toxic behavior to exist in her camp and on tour."

In response to these damning allegations, Lizzo opted to break her silence on Instagram earlier this month. In a swift retort, she vehemently refuted the claims as "outrageous," her denial reverberating across the digital realm.

The allegations raise a painful paradox shining a light on a public figure encouraging empowerment and self-love, but presenting an environment that’s totally opposite.
