Lizzo Faces New Lawsuit Over Alleged Inappropriate Working Conditions on Tour

Published:

Lizzo is facing another lawsuit related to allegations of inappropriate working conditions during her tour. Asha Daniels, a former tour employee, is suing the singer, claiming she endured a hostile work environment that included racist and fatphobic comments from members of Lizzo’s team. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Daniels was hired to work in wardrobe for Lizzo’s 2023 tour but alleges she was subjected to grueling hours, denied breaks, and endured harassment from Amanda Nomura, a member of Lizzo’s team.

Daniels, a Black woman, alleges that Nomura made racist and fatphobic comments, referring to Black women on the tour as “dumb,” “useless,” and “fat.” Daniels also claims Nomura told her not to dress attractively around Lizzo, as it would make the singer jealous when her boyfriend was present.

During one incident, Daniels states that she injured her ankle when Nomura rolled a clothing rack over it. She says she was reprimanded for wearing Crocs to work when she had a swollen ankle and was told to put on tennis shoes.

Daniels says she reported the behavior to Lizzo’s management team, including Lizzo’s tour manager, Carlina Gugliotta, who allegedly advised her to privately film Nomura’s actions. However, Daniels felt that doing so would be unethical.

Daniels believes her concerns were conveyed to Lizzo, but she was eventually fired before her contract was set to end. She claims her experience on the tour has resulted in ongoing anxiety, PTSD, migraines, ocular distortions, brain fog, and fatigue.

It’s worth noting that Lizzo was recently sued by three former employees who alleged sexual harassment and uncomfortable working conditions on her tour.

Daniels is represented by Neama Rahmani, the same lawyer who represented the three women in the previous lawsuit against Lizzo. She is suing for sexual harassment, racial harassment, disability discrimination, and other claims, seeking damages that include unpaid wages and loss of earnings.
