It might be time for “La Verdad Duel” for Lizzo at the Super Bowl. Multiple media outlets have reported that the rap star lost his opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl at Allegiant Stadium.
The revelation comes after several instances in which the Grammy-winning artist was accused of sexual harassment, making fun of her body parts and creating an abusive work environment.
This month, three former backup dancers filed a lawsuit against Lizzo, her dance captain and producer. As a result of these allegations, other instances supported the three dancers and claimed they faced similar circumstances.
Lizzo has denied the allegations and described them as “unbelievable”.
An appearance at halftime or during the Super Bowl anthem is a major accomplishment for any performer. In the past, Rihanna’s show attracted a record 121 million viewers. Jay-Z’s Roc Nation is in charge of producing the Super Bowl’s half-time.
There are already signs that relations between Lizzo and Roc Nation are on shaky ground. The “Made in America Festival”, featuring Lizzo and Sazza, scheduled to take place in Philadelphia on September 2 and 3, was canceled on August 8.
Jay-Z funded the event in 2012.
In a statement, the organizers cited “serious circumstances affecting the production”, without mentioning any cartel holders. A media source reported: “Ticket sales were not good”.
