Who is Shirlene Quigley? The dancer named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed by three of Lizzo's former dancers.

Who is Shirlene Quigley? The dancer has been in the news over the last day following a lawsuit brought against her, Lizzo, and the singer's production company.

The suit has been filed by three former dancers who worked for Lizzo, with the full lawsuit obtained by NBC News.

Quigley, 39, is named as one of the defendants in the suit, though she is yet to respond to any of the allegations.

And while everyone has heard of Lizzo, many have had to search up who Quigley is in recent days.

Who is Shirlene Quigley?

Born in July 1984 in Los Angeles, California, Quigley grew up knowing she wanted to be an actress and a dancer.

She really rose to fame as a backup dancer in Beyonce's original music video for 'Crazy in Love', all the way back in 2003.

Shirlene Quigley has been named as a defendant in the suit.

Since then, Quigley has worked with a long list of famous faces, including Rihanna, Missy Elliott, Destiny's Child and Chris Brown.

And more recently, Quigley has been with Lizzo as her dance captain for her tour performances since 2019.

Her work with Lizzo wasn't just the dancing though, as the pair's partnership grew stronger, with Quigley becoming a judge for Lizzo's Amazon reality show Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.

What has Shirlene Quigley been accused of?

Quigley has been named for wrongdoing by the three former backup dancers, with the dancer said to have been outspoken about her own sex life.

She is said to have subjected the dancers to 'luridly detailed stories about her masturbatory habits and sexual fantasies'.

There was apparently even one moment when Quigley demonstrated oral sex to other performers with a banana.

Quigley has also been accused of proselytizing, with one of the former dancers claiming Quigley 'made it her mission' to preach Christianity to her.

The dance captain faces a series of allegations.

One of the dancers also accused Quigley of making her virginity 'a topic of extreme importance', which she would 'routinely bring up'.

She even mentioned her virginity in interviews and on social media, according to the lawsuit.

Quigley is yet to respond to any allegations made in the lawsuit.

UNILAD has reached out to the dancer for comment.
