Beyoncé greeted Lizzo during her concert in Atlanta, Georgia last night (August 14).
During her performance of ‘Break My Soul (The Queens Remix)’, which mentions the name Lizzo, the pop star exclaimed, “Lizzo! I love you, Lizzo!”
The chant at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium appeared to be in support of Lizzo after the star was recently accused of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment.
Previously, Beyoncé left the name Lizzo off the track during a performance in Massachusetts before bringing it back in Maryland.
Three of her former dancers are suing Lizzo, alleging allegations of sexual harassment and a hostile work environment.
Crystal Williams, Arianna Davis and Noelle Rodriguez accused Lizzo of creating a hostile work environment and engaging in sexual harassment, among other charges. His dance team captain Shirlene Quigley and producer of Big Grrrl Big Touring Inc. also listed as defendants in the lawsuit.
Lizzo then responded by saying she was “hurt” by the “treasonous” allegations, and Marty Singer, the attorney who has worked on recent cases against Jonah Hill, Johnny Depp, Bill Cosby and more .
The three dancers responded to his statement, saying it was “disappointing” to read it. “At first, for me, it added to my disappointment with how I felt and how I was treated,” Williams told Channel 4 in an interview.
The lawyer who represented the three dancers then said his firm is studying at least six new complaints against the singer.
On her behalf, Tina Knowles – Beyoncé’s mother – recently told her fans that the edited version of the song had nothing to do with the claims.
In response, Knowles wrote: “She didn’t say her own sister’s name either and al should really stop.” This is referring to the omission of Solange Knowles’ name from the performance as well. Additionally, former Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland was not mentioned in the performance either.
