Adrienne Bailon Recalls Her Experience with Sexual Harassment in Hollywood
Adrienne Bailon is the latest celebrity to speak up her experience with sexual harassment in Hollywood.
The Cheetah Girls alum opened up to her The Real co-hosts on Tuesday’s (Oct. 18, 2016) show about the time a music executive took advantage of her years ago.
“I even experienced an executive that would kiss me on the lips,” she said. “It consistently happened to the point where I was like, ‘This ain’t cool, man. Now he knows I’m not going to say anything.’ Which is not OK.”
She also noted that many women — including herself — do not speak up out of fear. “To be honest, I thought it was an accident,” she continued. “Obviously that happened then, I would never allow that to happen now, but a lot of women are in fear. And you ask yourself, well why do they let them get away with it? Fear has a big part to do with it. And two, these men are usually famous. Because you’re famous, you can get away with it.”
