Lizzo has requested a judge dismiss the lawsuit filed last month against her by three of her former dancers.

The lawsuit filed by Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez accused the Grammy winner of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment — accusations Lizzo’s legal team vehemently denies in a new legal document filed on the evening of Sept. 27.

The newly filed documents, independently viewed by Variety, state the singer and her Big Grrrl touring company deny “each and every allegation” in the lawsuit and ask that it be dismissed “in its entirety with prejudice.”

It lists over 30 “affirmative defenses,” responding that “there was no injury, loss or damage to Plaintiffs” and that plaintiffs “are guilty of unclean hands” (meaning they are not legally entitled to any damages), among other notes in response to the dancer’s original claims.
