Lizzo Is Being Sued By Postmates Driver She Accused of Stealing Food
The driver is afraid of leaving her house for fear of facing the wrath of Lizzo fans.
More money, more problems has become Lizzo’s reality. Just weeks after she was accused of plagiarism over hit song, “Truth Hurts,” the singer is being slapped with a lawsuit over a Postmates order gone awry.
It was back in September when Lizzo made waves by calling out a Postmates driver for allegedly stealing food she’d ordered, calling the driver, Tiffany Wells, out on Twitter. When fans deluged the driver with hate for her alleged misdeed, Lizzo jumped back on Twitter to apologize.
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. Imma really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door. ?

Now, we learn that apology was not enough. Wells is suing Lizzo for the tweets, calling them “libelous.” The lawsuit adds that “Lizzo’s conduct was extreme and outrageous in that she used her celebrity to publicly defame, disparage, and threaten a private individual, to roughly one million Twitter followers.”
According to TMZ, Wells has been “afraid to leave her home and even go to work, for fear someone might harm her or even worse.”
Lizzo has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
