Recording artist Jessie Reyez has joined the ranks of singer Bebe Rexha and two other artists in accusing Noel “Detail” Fisher of sexual misconduct.

Reyez’s confession came via Twitter, where she reposted TMZ’s report on the initial two women’s accusations against Fisher. “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.” Subsequently, she posted on Instagram that her devastating song about industry predators “Gatekeeper” (sample lyrics: “We are the gatekeepers, spread your legs, open up/You could be famous, girl, on your knees/Don’t you know what your place is?”) is about her interaction with Detail.

Fisher is a well-known producer in the music industry, having pulled in credits on Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love” and “How To Love” by Lil Wayne, not to mention working with artists like Jennifer Lopez, Ashanti, Lady Gaga, and Snoop Dogg.

On Wednesday, TMZ reported that Kristina Buch and Peyton Ackley had filed restraining orders against Detail. According to the documents, Detail engaged them in sexual activity without their consent, and recently left Buch with bruises after hitting and choking her in a hotel. Ackley claims that Detail once forced her to have sex with him in front of another producer after he walked in on her bathing. Rexha broke her silence soon after the TMZ post and said that she “literally ran out of the studio” after Fisher acted inappropriately towards her. Reyez clearly hopes that the “gatekeepers” of the industry get their due. “I hope these women find justice,” she wrote on Instagram.
