On Thursday, singer Jessie Reyez accused producer Noel “Detail” Fisher of sexual misconduct.
Reyez allegations came after gossip rags like TMZ reported on Wednesday that two women, Kristina Buch and Peyton Ackley, filed restraining orders against the producer. Both women alleged that Fisher had raped and beaten them and forced them to have sex with him in front of other people. A judge granted their request for a restraining order, according to TMZ.
Reyez did not accuse Fisher of any physical assault, but shared her own story of Fisher’s alleged sexual misconduct via Twitter. “One night over 6 years ago, Noel ‘Detail’ Fisher tried this on me,” Reyez 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.”

In a follow-up Instagram post, Reyez said that her alleged experience with Fisher led her to write the song “Gatekeeper,” in which she sings from the perspective of a powerful figure who coerces women into sex by promising them fame: “I’m the gatekeeper/ Spread your legs/ Open up/ You could be famous.”
