On Monday, GRAMMY-winning artist Lizzo took to Instagram to announce some heartbreaking news. Her beloved dog, Pooka Diamanté Jefferson, passed away on Christmas Eve.

She posted a beautiful picture of her dog being cradled by her mom Shari Johnson-Jefferson as Lizzo and her sister Vanessa Jefferson, lovingly gaze at the pup.

In the caption, the ‘Good as Hell’ singer simply wrote, “We will always love you, Pooka Diamanté Jefferson. 4•10•2005 – 12•24•2023.” Fans and celebrities alike were quick to share condolences with the singer.


SZA commented, “Wait nooo !! I’m so honored to have met you🥲😞.”

The singer again posted a carousel of pictures for her beloved dog, writing in the captioon, “I’m not ok, I’m so heartbroken. RIP Pooka.” It features 10 pictures of memorable moments Lizzo had shared with her late dog. And also a picture of a keepsake with Pooka’s paw print on it.

Last year, Lizzo had dealt with some issues, including a lawsuit from her former backup dancers. The artist has been very candid about her journey to self-improvement and recently shared a picture on Instagram in which she donned a white robe and revealed her commitment to working on various aspects of her life.

Her dedication to improving herself and advocating for marginalized communities has remained the same despite her being faced with legal challenges. She was the recipient of the Quincy Jones Humanitarian Award at the 2023 Black Music Action Coalition Gala in September. In her acceptance speech, she pledged to do more.

“It’s easy to do the right thing when everybody’s watching you, and it’s what you do in those moments where nobody’s watching that defines who you are,” Lizzo said. “I’m going to continue to shine a light on the people who are helping people because they deserve it. I’m going to continue to amplify the voices of marginalized people because I have a microphone and I know how to use it.”

She affirmed her dedication to making more safe spaces for Black women by saying, “That’s what the f**k I do.”
