Singers Bebe Rexha, Jessie Reyez Break Silence on Music Producer’s Attempted Sexual Misconduct
Musicians Bebe Rexha and Jessie Reyez are breaking their silence surrounding one producer's sexual transgressions against up-and-coming female performers.
On Thursday (May 10), the "Meant to Be" musician went public on Twitter about the time she met Noel "Detail" Fisher, a well-known name in the industry who has worked with stars like Drake and Beyonce and once made inappropriate advances toward Rexha. Her disclosure follows recent accusations of sexual and physical abuse pending against the famous recording star.
After acquiring the official court papers, TMZ reported Wednesday (May 9) that two female artists — Kristina Buch and Peyton Ackley — had been granted restraining orders against Detail. The former claimed he raped her in February after a recording session in Miami, Ackley holds that he would often force them both to perform as his "sex slaves."
In light of the vocalists' joint act of courage to go public with their citations, the 28-year-old shared her own frightening experience with Detail, whom she claimed tried to prey on her as well.
“Glad these women came out, the "In the Name of Love" songbird rejoined in a retweet of the report. "It’s scary. He tried to with me, but I literally ran out of that studio. Karma is a bitch.”
In another tweet, Rexha continued: “It’s scary for females to come out and say something. Those women are strong. He tried to do the same thing to me when I was new [sic] artist."
Adding to the volley of accusations asserting the engineer's illicit conduct with female singers, Reyez, an R&B soloist, also said her song "Gatekeeper" was about an unsettling encounter she, too, had with the Detroit recording artist.
"One night, over 6 years ago Noel 'Detail' Fisher tried this on me," the "Body Count" chanteuse tweeted. "I was lucky and I got out before it got to this. I didn't know what to say or who to tell. I was scared. Fear is a real thing. The girls that came out are brave as well."
"Yes this is who gatekeeper is about. My experience didn't get this awful. I hope these women find justice," the 27-year-old wrote in a follow-up Instagram post.
"No wonder why loved [sic] this song so much," Rexha wrote in response to Reyez's revealing testimony.
Detail has yet to answer to the allegations.
