taking to Instagram to share the news, the 35-year-old singer revealed the decision comes from being “tired of getting dragged by everyone” as well as being criticised “because of how I look”.

“All I want is to make music and make people happy and help the world be a little better than how I found it.

“My character being picked apart by people who don’t know me and disrespecting my name

“I didn’t sign up for this s**t. I quit.”

Fans were quick to share their reactions, with one user stating: “Don’t give up! You’re loved! ❤”.

“Enjoy your life, you’ve given a lot of joy. You owe no one nothing and I’m sorry the world was not kinder,” another added.

“Others were seemingly satisfied to see the artists departure, with one user commenting: “then, perhaps don’t abuse your employees…”

“Good byeeeeeeeeee ,” another said.

The revelation comes just one day after the lawyer for Lizzo’s three former dancers slammed President Joe Biden for letting her perform at his $25million Radio City fundraiser on Thursday.

The dancers, Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez, filed a lawsuit against the artist last August, alleging sexual harassment as well creating a hostile work environment.
