In a new TikTok, Lizzo spoke about why she didn't appear in Lopez's musical film 'This Is Me... Now: A Love Story'

Lizzo is addressing a claim that she wasn't able to appear in Jennifer Lopez's musical film.

On Wednesday, Lizzo, 35, shared a TikTok where she responded to a clip from Lopez's Prime Video documentary The Greatest Love Story Never Told in which one of the "Waiting for Tonight" singer's team members claimed she was "not available" to participate in her star-studded movie musical This Is Me…Now: A Love Story.

“Ain’t nobody told me nothing,” the "Truth Hurts" artist said in the video. "Nobody asked me. J. Lo, I love you.”

Lizzo's response comes just two weeks after Lopez, 54, releasedThis Is Me…Now: A Love Story, in which she enlisted stars like Jane FondaKeke PalmerTrevor NoahKim PetrasPost MaloneSofia VergaraJenifer LewisJay Shetty, Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Sadhguru into as the hilarious zodiac council, an astrologically inspired group that meets to dissect Lopez’s love life from the heavens above.

Elsewhere in the film, Fat Joe makes a cameo as her therapist, while Derek Hough steals the show with his dance moves as one of the actress/singer's husbands.

On Tuesday, Lopez released The Greatest Love Story Never Told, which chronicles the making of her musical film as well as her journey to self-love. In one scene, the producers and Lopez discuss the offers they extended to various stars ahead of filming.

In the documentary, the “Can’t Get Enough” performer is told that Taylor Swift “is a no,” while Jason MomoaJennifer Coolidge and Lizzo are unavailable.

At one point, someone suggests Lopez’s Second Act co-star Vanessa Hudgens to play one of her friends in the film, though she’s also deemed unavailable.

“It’d be good to get Bad Bunny to do a little cameo,” the Enough star suggests, while names like James CordenAriana Grande and Snoop Dogg are also discussed as people who are unavailable.

“I don’t want to force anybody to do this who doesn’t go, ‘This is gonna be fun,’” Lopez tells her crew. “Nobody wants to say 'no' to me…. I get that. But when an actor doesn’t like a script or doesn’t think it’s good enough or is worried about it, that’s what they’ll say. I know that. I’ve done it.”

She also reveals to her choreographer Sienna Lalau that Khloé Kardashian was “supposed” to be in the film, but will no longer be.

“People [are] scared to put themselves out there. I get it,” she says. “Took me a long time. I’m scared.”

Lopez reveals that the In the Heights star Anthony Ramos backed out of playing one of her character’s partners due to his friendship with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.

“He was like, ‘Ah, I’m friends with Marc.’ I’m not even playing me in this. There’s a protagonist, this woman, that goes on this journey,” Lopez tells her wardrobe stylist Shawn “Beezy” Barton in the doc. “He’s like, ‘Yeah, I just think that people are gonna think that — you know how the media is.’”
