In a surprising turn of events, TheDailyMail.com reported that Lizzo has been axed from the potential lineup for The Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show.
Insiders from the National Football League (NFL) disclosed that recent allegations of sexual harassment and body-shaming have led to this abrupt decision.
A confidential source from within the NFL stated, “The notion of Lizzo being part of the Halftime festivities or performing the National Anthem is a non-starter due to the ongoing scandal,” as reported by TheDailyMail.com.
While the official roster of performers is kept under wraps, betting odds from Covers.com currently favor artists like Miley Cyrus, Harry Styles, and Bad Bunny as potential headliners for the February 2024 spectacle.
Lizzo, at the age of 35, finds herself engulfed in controversy following accusations of body shaming and sexual harassment during her recent tour, “The Special Tour,” raised by several backup dancers. Allegations in the lawsuit suggest that Lizzo orchestrated uncomfortable sexual scenarios, including instances where tour cast members were coerced into consuming bananas presented in explicit ways and touching nude performers.
