Thanks to the #MeToo movement, many women have been opening up about their uncomfortable experiences with powerful men in the entertainment industry. Singer Ashanti recently discussed an encounter she had with a producer, who she did not name, that went left after she refused his sexual advances.
According to MadameNoire, while on SiriusXM’s “Conversations with Maria Menounos,” the 37-year-old said it was obvious that he had a crush on her but when he tried shoot his shot, he took things too far once she turned him down.
“Once I said ‘no,’ all of a sudden the track became $45,000,” she said. “It’s funny because he said something like, ‘Well just take a shower with me and let me do this.’”
The Long Island native said her big brothers came in and handled the situation and made the producer apologize. Her apology also came with some freebies.
“I actually got three records for free! And I got two of them mixed and mastered for free also.”
