Earlier this month, the 35-year-old pop star, who had previously marketed herself as a body-positive thinking activist, found herself at the center of a sensational scandal when three of her former dancers, Crystal Williams, Noelle Rodriguez and Arianna Davis have filed suit against her, accusing Lizzo of creating a “hostile work environment”, which she completely denies.
An NFL employee revealed to DailyMail.com on Friday that backlash over the allegations prompted the organization to drop Lizzo from consideration for the Super Bowl halftime show.
The move comes as her name was already among the contenders for the 2024 show.
“Discussion of Lizzo attending the halftime festivities or performing the national anthem is dead now that she’s surrounded by scandals,” the source said.
