Postmates Driver Sues Lizzo for Defamation

Postmates Driver Sues Lizzo for Defamation . Lizzo is being sued by a former Postmates delivery driver, Tiffany Wells, after the “Truth Hurts” singer falsely accused her of stealing. The incident began in September, when Lizzo posted a photo of Wells to the platform and tweeted Postmates saying, “this girl Tiffany W. stole my food she lucky I don’t fight no more.”. As a result, many of Lizzo’s fans began threatening Wells, which caused her to “fear someone might harm her,” as reported by TMZ. As it turns out, Wells had attempted to deliver the food, but was unable to get a hold of Lizzo, causing her to leave with the undelivered food. . Lizzo later publicly apologized, saying, “I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could’ve put her in danger.”. According to her filed claim, Wells is suing Lizzo for “libel” and “false light invasion of privacy.”. She also feels that Lizzo intentionally inflicted “emotional distress,” as well as caused her to “[fear] for her physical safety.”. Wells is seeking compensatory and punitive damages, as well as compensation for legal fees and other “equitable relief.”
