Lizzo Slams Plagiarism Claims: “There Was No One in the Room When I Wrote ‘Truth Hurts'”

Published: Wednesday 23rd Oct 2019 by Rashad

Lizzo‘s had enough!

The chart-topping diva has been swarmed with criticism after multiple singer-songwriters have called her out for allegedly using their concepts, lines, or other intellectual property for her inaugural #1 single, ‘Truth Hurts’ (click here to read more).

Having kept mum for over a week since the allegations first topped headlines, now the 31-year-old is finally speaking out.  Look inside to see what she said:

“The men who now claim a piece of Truth Hurts did not help me write any part of the song,” Lizzo wrote. “They had nothing to do with the line or how I chose to sing it.”

See what else she took to Twitter to say:

The comments come just a day after her lawyer, Cynthia Arato, issued a statement to say:

“The Raisens are not writers of ‘Truth Hurts.’ They did not collaborate with Lizzo or anyone else to create this song, and they did not help write any of the material that they now seek to profit from, which is why they expressly renounced any claim to the work, in writing, months ago. Although it has become all too commonplace for successful artists to be subjected to these type of opportunistic claims, it is nevertheless disappointing that after all of her hard work, Lizzo has to respond to this specious claim.”

Although she’s defended ‘Truth,’ as of time reported Lizzo’s not responded to claims her song, ‘Juice,’ borrows elements from 90’s House sensation CeCe Peniston‘s signature tune, ‘Finally.’

    What. A. Mess.

    If anyone should be suing Lizzo, it should be Meghan Trainor because these Lizzo songs sound exactly like something Meghan would release…

    No shade because I love Meghan and Lizzo. But facts are facts.

    Also, Camila ain’t sh*t.

      Facts. Camila is a very ugly p*** w***** flop

      • Are You Kidding Me? October 24, 2019

        Camila is NOT a p***. She IS a racist. Camila is a Cuban singer. She is a White Cuban. It’s like White South Africans. Ugh. You came and colonized and now want to claim you’re “ethnic”. FOH She is a White girl. The end.

    She’s nothing more than a novelty act due to her size. Truth hurts.

    Just cause someone wasn’t in the room with her doesn’t mean she didn’t steal that line ?‍♂️

    I guess the fat is messing with her brain

    Lol irony no one was in the room when you were stealing

  5. damo October 24, 2019

    Shut the f*** up b****, you don’t need to be surrounded to steal from someone, is she f****** stoopid? It’s time to stop the bouffonerie.

  6. LOL October 24, 2019

    No one said they were in the room with you boo. From my understanding, the brothers claim they were in the room when you wrote or co-wrote Healthy…lol. CeCe Peniston claims her songs spirit was in the room when you wrote Juice. God knows the truth and I hope you can sleep by cutting anyone out. Don’t demonize them for speaking up that they believe their songs helped you with Truth Hurts. It’s hard out here for songwriters. You gave a tweet writing credits but when the brothers played Healthy it sounded exactly like the melody in the opening line to Truth Hurts. You have never mentioned the song Healthy publicly and that makes me question things….so address it.

  7. Truth October 24, 2019

    Lies.. she said in an interview truth hurts was wrote over a period of time when she was telling the producer about how a guy broke her heart… and that every time she would talk to him about it they would add more words to the song… now no one was there… girl..

    No one in the room but your laptop and copy-paste?
