It appears that Lizzo will not be performing at the Super Bowl halftime show anytime soon.

Earlier this month. three of Lizzo’s former dancers came forward to accuse the pop star of “sexual harassment, creating a hostile work environment, and fat shaming.”

One of the women alleged that Lizzo “pressured one of them to touch a nude performer at an Amsterdam club and subjected the group to an ‘excruciating’ audition after leveling false accusations that they were drinking on the job,.”

Lizzo is now dealing with the fallout from the allegations.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, the NFL has removed Lizzo from Super Bowl halftime show consideration due to the backlash she’s received from the allegations against her.

Now, an NFL insider exclusively tells that the ensuing backlash over the allegations has prompted the organization to immediately drop Lizzo from Super Bowl Halftime Show contention – having previously had her name in the mix as one of the front-runners for the 2024 spectacle.

‘Talks of Lizzo being a part of the Halftime festivities, or performing the National Anthem, are dead now that she is surrounded by scandal,’ the source said in the wake of the accusations – which Lizzo vehemently denies.

Lizzo has denied the allegations in a lengthy statement released last week.

“These last few days have been gut-wrenchingly difficult and overwhelmingly disappointing. My work ethic, morals, and respectfulness have been questioned. My character has been criticized. Usually, I choose not to respond to false allegations, but these are as unbelieve as they sound and too outrageous not to be addressed,”

“These sensationalized stories are coming from former employees who have already publicly admitted that they were told their behavior on tour was inappropriate and unprofessional. As an artist, I have always been very passionate about what I do. I take my music and my performances seriously because, at the end of the day, I only want to put out the best art that represents me and my fans. With passion comes hard work and high standards. Sometimes, I have to make hard decisions but it’s never my intention to make anyone feel uncomfortable or like they aren’t valued as an important part of the team.”

“I am not here to be looked at as a victim, but I also know that I am not the villain that people and the media have portrayed me to be these last few days. I am very open with my sexuality and expressing myself but I cannot accept or allow people to use that openness to make me out to be something I am not”
