*Lizzo’s lawyer has responded to some controversial new photos of the former dancers suing her for sexual harassment.

Lizzo’s attorney, Marty Singer, is speaking out about newly surfaced photos showing the backup dancers who are taking Lizzo to court, “happily carousing” and “gleefully reveling” backstage with topless cabaret performers in Paris, TMZ reports.  The photos were allegedly taken about a month after the infamous banana incident with Lizzo in Amsterdam.

We reported previously that Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez are suing Lizzo and the singer’s dance captain Shirlene Quigley, claiming they were subjected to sexual harassment, religious harassment, disability discrimination and a toxic work environment.

In the suit, the dancers recall one incident when Lizzo allegedly pressured Davis to touch the breasts of a nude performer at an Amsterdam club, Daily Mail reports. Lizzo allegedly encouraged “catching dildos launched from the performers’ vaginas and eating bananas protruding from the performers’ vaginas,” per the lawsuit, according to Daily Mail.

Lizzo’s accusers claim she pressured them to go to the Paris topless show, but Singer tells TMZ that contradicts the new photos taken March 5, about a month after the February visit to Bananenbar in Amsterdam.

Per TMZ, Singer said the former Big Grrrl dancers are “happily cavorting backstage” with the topless performers.

Singer also noted that a month after the Paris visit, Arianna Davis gushed over Lizzo in an audition tape, saying, “It’s been so amazing and such a beautiful journey. I look up to her so much. I just want to follow in her footsteps, and I just want to share that with the Queen Lizzo herself.”

The attorney for the accusers, Neama Rahmani, had this to say to TMZ about the new photo from Paris, “Of course, they wanted to keep their jobs. They had bills to pay just like everyone else but they finally had enough of the abuse. We stand by every claim in the lawsuit and look forward to trial.”

Rahmani added, “We’ve been hearing from other former employees sharing similar stories, and as seen in the Los Angeles Times article today about how Lizzo used intimate footage of her dancers without their approval in the 2022 HBO Max ‘Love Lizzo’ documentary, we’re seeing even more of a pattern of just how much Lizzo thinks of those who work for her. Clearly, not very much.”
