Lizzo Wants Judge to Declare 'Truth Hurts' Not Shared with Ex-Cowriters

Lizzo‘s going to war — a legal war — with three songwriters who’ve been making a lot of noise, claiming they wrote parts of her #1 hit … but Lizzo says that’s BS.

Lizzo filed legal docs Wednesday in federal court asking a judge to declare the 3 men have no copyright on “Truth Hurts,” and no right to share in the song’s immense profits.

You’ve probably seen this bubbling up on social media. One of the songwriters — Justin Raisen — has claimed he cowrote a song called “Healthy” with Lizzo last year. He claims Lizzo lifted the signature lyric, “I just took a DNA test turns out I’m 100% that bitch” from “Healthy.”
