A Los Angeles-based stripper is laying bare details of an encounter with Halsey, claiming the singer “humiliated” her and deprived her of a night’s worth of wages.
Honey Lestrange took to TikTok on Sunday, saying she worked at the Hollywood strip club Cheetahs back in 2019 when it was rented out by Halsey, 27 — who uses she/they pronouns — to promote their single “Nightmare.”
“It was the most humiliating experience of my life — at least in public,” Lestrange stated, adding that “Halsey technically owes me some money.”
In her TikTok video — which has racked up more than 513,000 views — Lestrange says the “Without Me” singer “specifically requested” all of Cheetahs’ 40 strippers be present at the promotional event.
All of the women were reportedly invited to perform, but as the club’s stage was small, Lestrange said she had to wait in line “forever” behind her co-workers before she had a chance to get up and do her routine.
When Lestrange finally hit the stage at 1:40 a.m., she recalled feeling “so pumped” because patrons had been tipping generously all night.
“I walked on stage thinking, ‘Wow, I’m gonna be able to pay my rent on time,’” the stripper said in her TikTok.
However, just seconds into her performance, a manager supposedly ordered her off the stage because Halsey wanted to get up and sing their songs.
Patrons stopped tipping Lestrange and left the venue when Halsey’s set later ended, assuming that the evening was over.
“I got pity-tipped $20 by people who were looking at me like a sad f–king puppy,” Lestrange claimed, saying she went home almost empty-handed at the end of the night.
“Never ever pull anyone off the stage. You can f–king wait. Disrespectful,” Lestrange captioned her video.
She added: “You know what you did. My Venmo [handle] is in my bio.”
Halsey’s reps did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.
At the time, Halsey made headlines for their performance at Cheetahs because they shared a video with the hashtag #supportsexworkers.
However, Lestrange says Halsey’s public sentiments couldn’t be further from the truth, and that the singer failed to acknowledge any of the strippers that night.
Meanwhile, Lestrange told Rolling Stone that she and several of her co-workers complained to Cheetahs’ management, which offered an apology. However, she was reportedly fired several months later when the club changed owners.
“It was a rough period,” the stripper told the publication.
Meanwhile, Halsey has been in the spotlight again following their appearance as a musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” last weekend.
Halsey also appeared in promos for the episode alongside guest host Kim Kardashian.
