Rapper and songwriter Melissa Viviane Jefferson, known professionally as Lizzo, tweeted a photo of Wells on September 16, saying, "this girl Tiffany W. stole my food she lucky I don't fight no more".
Lizzo has since apologized (in a tweet, seen below), noting that her actions were inappropriate.
She also tried to call Lizzo, who had ordered the food under the pseudonym Bonnie V, but could not get hold of her.
"I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger", she wrote. Tiffany alleges she actually went above and beyond to find the songstress in her hotel, but after not being able to locate her, she left to deliver another order. However, TMZ is reporting that Wells has now chose to take legal action against Lizzo, and is suing her "for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress". In the lawsuit, filed today in a California federal court, Wells says that she no longer works for Postmates because of the incident, lives in constant fear and anxiety, and has received personal threats to her safety.
Now the delivery woman, Tiffany Wells, is suing Lizzo for libel, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false light invasion, according to TMZ.
Lizzo has not publicly responded to the lawsuit.
