Lizzo will not be performing at Super Bowl LVII amid a flurry of sexual harassment claims being lobbed her way, a new report recently revealed.
The pop star was reportedly one of the frontrunners to perform at the NFL's premiere event, but she's now been dropped from consideration.
"Talks of Lizzo being a part of the Halftime festivities, or performing the National Anthem, are dead now that she is surrounded by scandal," a source told DailyMail.com.
Earlier this month, three of Lizzo's former backups dancers filed a lawsuit alleging that the singer weight-shamed and demeaned them. The women also claim they faced sexual, religious and racial harassment and were subject to false imprisonment. A few more women came forward later with similar allegations and spoke candidly of negative experiences involving the Grammy winner.
A second source said Lizzo's team is "desperately trying to come up with a strategy to save her sinking ship."
"It is becoming more and more difficult with more people coming forth accusing her of extremely inappropriate acts," the music-industry insider told DailyMail.com. "Lizzo has raked in a massive amount of money but her minute is pretty much up, it seems, and no one knows if she will be able to recover from this. If she speaks out, her statements are shredded. If she stays quiet, she is called a coward. Either way, it does not appear at this moment that she can recover from this."
Because of this, the NFL has seemingly blocked her from being affiliated with the brand.
Details of the lawsuit are salacious. In one instance listed in court documents, the dancers claim they reluctantly visited Amsterdam's infamous Red Light District at Lizzo's insistence out of fear of losing their jobs. "The main event of the night was a club called Bananenbar, where patrons are allowed to interact with completely nude performers. While at Bananenbar, things quickly got out of hand," the lawsuit claims. "Lizzo began inviting cast members to take turns touching the nude performers, catching [sex toys] launched from the performers' vaginas, and eating bananas protruding from the performers' vaginas."
On Aug. 3, Lizzo put out a lengthy statement denying the allegations.
"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," she wrote in part.
