Ava Max Opens Up About Sexual Harassment Incident with Producer: ” It Was Like Mind Games”

Ava Max opened up about a horrifying experience she had while working with a producer.

During an appearance on Catt Sadler’s podcast, It Sure Is a Beautiful Day, she revealed that an unnamed producer once locked her in a room and tried to have sex with her.

The Oh No They Didn’t Blog detailed the conversation quoting Ava as saying, “I was working with a lot of producers that wouldn’t give me back my songs I wrote in the studio. It was horrible. And I mean, I’ve been locked in a room before, like, I’ve never even said that aloud, but I’ve been locked in a room before because somebody wanted to instead work with me, have sex with me. I obviously got out and it was fine, but it was not cool. It was like mind games, and it was because I was young and they thought I was aloof.

She continued, “But I knew it was going on, so I wasn’t falling for any of the games. And I think they got terrified and just let me out. … I was crying and this person was like, ‘Oh, those are crocodile tears.’ And I’m just like, ‘I just want to go home at this point. Like, don’t even give me back the songs I’ve written. I just want to go home.’ … I remember just going to my girlfriend’s house after. It was like 4:00 in the morning and when I left … I was crying and crying. She was like, ‘You know, this is not OK.’ Like, she wanted to beat this person. I’m like, ‘Let’s just never speak to this person ever again.’ And I left my songs there forever in that hard drive. I never got them out.”

Ava also discussed the biggest misconception about her, comparisons to Lady Gaga, and revealed that she never wanted the fame that came with her success.  Read more here.
