It seems singer Ashanti is joining the #MeToo movement. The 37-year-old songstress has become the latest celebrity in the line to open up on the sexual harassment experience she suffered in her career.
Ashanti opened up about her own #MeToo experience during SiriusXM’s “Conversations with Maria Menounos radio show where she revealed she had awkward experience with a music producer.
“I’ve come across a situation where there was a certain producer that, you know, he had his little crush or whatever, but it wasn’t anything new, you know?” she said. “And once I said ‘no,’ all of a sudden the track became $45K. It’s funny because he said something like, ‘Well just take a shower with me and let me do this,'” she recalled.
Ashanti also disclosed that her “scary” big brothers approached the producer and got her an apology.
“The way that apology came in, I actually got three records for free!” she said. “And I got two of them mixed and mastered for free also.”
