"I'm getting tired of putting up with being dragged by everyone in my life and on the internet," the singer, rapper, and flutist wrote in her recent Instagram post.

"All I want is to make music and make people happy and help the world be a little better than how I found it... But I'm starting to feel like the world doesn't want me in it."

Lizzo continued, noting specific examples: "I'm constantly up against lies being told about me for clout & views... being the butt of the joke every single time because of how I look... my character being picked apart by people who don't know me and disrespecting my name."

The 35-year-old finished the post by saying, "I didn't sign up for this shit – I QUIT."

The About Damn Time artist, whose real name is Melissa Jefferson, is facing ongoing legal allegations of an inappropriate and oversexualized workplace environment from three of her former female dancers.

"Usually I choose not to respond to false allegations but these are as unbelievable as they sound and too outrageous to not be addressed," Lizzo said on Instagram when the allegations first came out in August.

"These sensationalized stories are coming from former employees who have already publicly admitted that they were told their behavior on tour was inappropriate and unprofessional."

Do you think Lizzo's really going to go through with this, or is she bluffing?
