Atlantic RecordsThe legal problems continue for Lizzo: The “Truth Hurts“ singer is reportedly being sued for defamation stemming from a Postmates delivery gone bad.
TMZ reports that Tiffany Wells filed a lawsuit in response to the singer/rapper tweeting that she stole Lizzo’s food delivery to a Boston hotel in September. Wells claims that the six-time Soul Train nominee ruined her life by blasting her on social media.
In a since-deleted tweet, Lizzo wrote, “Hey @Postmates this girl Tiffany W. stole my food. she lucky I don’t fight no more,” according to Page Six.
Postmates responded, writing “Hi! We’re sorry to hear you’ve had a less than satisfactory experience on our app. Would you mind DM’ing the email address linked to your account, so we can look further into this for you?”
Tiffany says upon arriving at the hotel, she attempted to contact Lizzo several times, and after not receiving a response, she left.
Lizzo later apologized writing, “I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could’ve put her in danger. I’m a really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door.”
Despite the apology, Wells proceeded with the lawsuit.
Her legal action follows Lizzo recently being accused of plagiarizing another song to create “Truth Hurts.” Lizzo responded by suing the accusers, brothers Justin and Jeremiah Raisen, for harassment.
