NBC News had a shocking exclusive last week that dancers for Lizzo — the singer and flutist known for her body positivity and proclamations of self-love — had filed a lawsuit against the performer for alleged sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment.

Lizzo's production company and her dance captain were also named in the suit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

There are other allegations, including religious and racial harassment and false imprisonment, per NBC News. It's important to note that "not every claim was brought against each defendant."

Lizzo responded to the claims via a statement on social media.
