The lawsuit filed against Lizzo, born Melissa Jefferson, her production company, and her dance captain details several eyebrow-raising allegations that reportedly led to a hostile work environment. Some of the incidents presented in the lawsuit include the dancers being weight-shamed and pressured into participating in sex shows. 

Marty Singer is representing the Grammy Award-winning singer and he’s represented some other big names in their high-profile cases.

Charlie Sheen: Singer represented Charlie Sheen in 2011 after Warner Bros. terminated his contract and fired him from the hit show "Two and a Half Men." Singer helped Sheen win a major payout after they reached a settlement of a reported $100 million.

Bill Cosby: While he no longer represents Mr. Cosby, Singer was his lawyer for years. The two stopped working together in 2015 during Cosby’s legal battle with Judy Huth, who accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her at the Playboy Mansion in 1975 when she was just 16 years old. However, he helped Cosby win a defamation lawsuit filed by Janice Dickinson.

Jim Carrey: A wrongful death lawsuit was filed against Jim Carrey after the comedian was accused of supplying drugs to his then-girlfriend, Carthriona White, that her family said led to her untimely death. With Singer’s help, the case was dismissed in 2018.

On Thursday, Lizzo broke her silence and issued a statement denying all allegations she called "too outrageous."
