Jessie Reyez, Bebe Rexha Allege Sexual Harassment By Producer
Canadian singer Jessie Reyez and U.S. pop star Bebe Rexha spoke up on Thursday after music producer Noel “Detail” Fisher was accused of sexually assaulting two female artists.
TMZ reported Wednesday that Fisher – who has produced singles for Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Drake – has been accused of rape and assault by Kristina Buch and Peyton Ackley.
Buch claimed Fisher raped her in February after a recording session in Miami and became violent with her last week while at the Malibu Beach Inn. Ackley alleged Fisher forced her to have sex with him in front of others and made her take nude photos while he masturbated. She claimed he assaulted her in March.
Reyez took to social media to support the two women.
“One night, over 6 years ago Noel ‘Detail’ Fisher tried this on me,” she wrote. “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 hell.”
Reyez added: “My experience didn’t get this awful. I hope these women find justice.”
Rexha also tweeted support for the accusers. "Glad these women came out. It's scary. He tried to with me, but I literally ran out of that studio. Karma is a bitch," she wrote.
"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 a new artist."
After Reyez said her 2017 song “Gatekeeper” is about Fisher, Rexha tweeted "No wonder [I] loved this song so much."
The lyrics include: "Girl, tie your hair up if you wanna be a star / Thirty million people want a shot / How much would it take for you to spread those legs apart? You could be famous / You know we're holding the dreams that you're chasing / You know you're supposed to get drunk and get naked.”
Fisher, who won a Grammy for producing the Beyoncé and Jay-Z hit "Drunk In Love," has not yet responded publicly to the allegations.
