The woman whom singer-songwriter Lizzo accused of stealing her delivery order back in September is suing the star for libel, emotional distress, and false light invasion of privacy.
Tiffany Wells, 27, on Friday filed court documents against Melissa Jefferson, professionally known as Lizzo. She alleges that the star’s insinuation that Wells stole her food caused the woman to fear continuing her work as a delivery person for Postmates, thus directly affecting her livelihood.
In a since-deleted tweet posted two months ago, Lizzo sent the following message to her million-plus following of fans on Twitter: “Hey @Postmates this girl Tiffany W. stole my food she lucky I don’t fight no more.”
The tweet was accompanied by a screenshot with Wells’ face.
Following the incident, Lizzo was criticized by people on Twitter who felt it was inappropriate for her to use her large platform to condemn someone who wasn’t on the same playing field.
