Filmmaker Sophia Nahli Allison claims Lizzo is “arrogant and nasty.”

Sophia Nahli Allison wanted to share her personal story after seeing allegations from Lizzo’s dancers and staff members

After singer Lizzo was accused by several collaborators of creating a toxic work environment, with elements of sexual harassment, racism and hostility, a filmmaker came out to talk about her experience with the “Juice” performer.

Director Sophia Nahli Allison briefly worked with Lizzo on what was to be a documentary about one of her tours. However, she left the project soon after due to the singer’s arrogant attitudes.

“I don’t normally comment on anything pop culture related. But, in 2019, I toured a bit with Lizzo to be the director of her documentary,” Allison wrote on her Twitter account. “I walked away after about two weeks. She treated me with a lot of disrespect.”

“I found her arrogant, self-centered and nasty. I was not protected and was thrown into a timid situation with little support. My spirit told me to get out of there as fast as I could and I am so grateful that I trusted my gut. I was deeply wounded, but I have healed.”

Allison, nominated for an Oscar in 2021 for her short film ‘A Love Song for Latasha,’ wanted to share her personal story after seeing allegations from Lizzo dancers and staff members.

“Reading these reports made me realize how dangerous the situation was. This type of abuse of power happens far too often,” the filmmaker pointed out on the social network.

Earlier this week it was reported that three of Lizzo’s former dancers, Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez, filed a lawsuit against the singer.

The artists allege that the pop star forced them to experience “a hostile work environment, religious harassment, disability discrimination and sexual harassment.” They also claimed that she pressured them to do a nude photo shoot.
