According to a statement issued to press, Lizzo is also pursuing a lawsuit agains the Raisens to legally establish the song's writing credits. Justin Raisen did not mention filing a lawsuit against Lizzo over their allegations in his original post on the issue.
See the statement from Lizzo's lawyer Cynthia Arato on "Truth Hurts" below.
"Today we filed a lawsuit on Lizzo's behalf to establish, in a court of law, that the Raisens are not writers of Truth Hurts and have no right to profit from the song's success. The Raisens did not collaborate with Lizzo or anyone else to create the 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, as the lawsuit makes abundantly clear. Although it is all too commonplace for successful artists to be subjected to these type of opportunistic claims, it is nevertheless disappointing that Lizzo had to take this step to put an end to the Raisens' false claims and their campaign of harassment."
