A Stripper on TikTok Is Accusing Halsey of Screwing Her Out of Hundreds of Dollars

A stripper on TikTok is accusing pop artist Halsey of mistreatment and exploiting exotic dancers stemming from her time working with her at a 2019 event, despite Halsey’s public proclamations of supporting sex workers.

In the TikTok video, which was posted on Sunday, Honey Lestrange, a stripper based in Los Angeles, explains that in the spring of 2019, the “Bad at Love” singer hired her and other dancers at Cheetah’s, a strip club in Hollywood, to perform at an event. Media reports about the event notes it was intended to promote Halsey’s then-recently released single “Nightmare.”

In her video, which has more than 250,000 views, Lestrange says it wasn’t uncommon for celebrities to rent out the space and “use [dancers] as props,” and that many dancers try to avoid celebrity events because they often make even less money than weeknights at the club. But Halsey’s team specifically requested every dancer, and the event turned out to be the “most humiliating experience of my life,” she says.
