Lizzo is planning to hit back with a lawsuit against the former backup dancers who accused her of sexual harassment, fat shaming and fostering a toxic work environment.
The ‘Special’ singer is getting ready to countersue Crystal Williams, 25, Noelle Rodriguez, and Arianna Davis, both 24, with powerhouse attorney Marty Singer by her side.
Singer told the outlet that new photos have emerged from the night when the ex-dancers attended a Paris cabaret show.
However, Singer said photos show her former dancers 'gleefully revelling' backstage with the adult entertainers.
According to the outlet, Singer said of those images: “As the old saying goes, a picture speaks a thousand words."
He added: "The pictures of three former dancers happily carousing backstage with other performers speak volumes."
He told People: "Lizzo intends to sue for malicious prosecution after she prevails and these specious claims are dismissed."
But the accusers' attorney Neama Rahmani told People that her former employees were merely smiling because they wanted to keep their jobs.
He said: "We’ve addressed all these instances where the plaintiffs appear to be happy alongside Lizzo during their time working with her.
“Of course, they wanted to keep their jobs. They had bills to pay just like everyone else but they finally had enough
"The plaintiffs merely wanted to keep their jobs until they finally had enough. Arianna, Noelle and Crystal were brave enough to come out with their stories and they don’t plan to back down in the face of these bullying tactics by Lizzo’s attorney. Our clients remain steadfast and look forward to their day in court."
He added that the photos don't 'change any facts in the lawsuit'.
Since the lawsuit was filed against Lizzo on August 1, she has fiercely denied the allegations.
“These last few days have been gut wrenchingly difficult and overwhelmingly disappointing,” she said in a statement.
"My work ethic, morals and respectfulness have been questioned.
"My character has been criticized. Usually I choose not to respond to false allegations but these are as unbelievable as they sound and too outrageous to not be addressed.
"These sensationalized stories are coming from former employees who have already publicly admitted that they were told their behavior on tour was inappropriate and unprofessional."
