R&B singer Miguel has been accused of sexually assaulting a female fan and the Internet is talking.

Known for his sensually explicit music and intimate performances, a woman who identified herself as Xian Bass, took to Instagram to share her experience after meeting the Wildheart entertainer following a club appearance.

Bass states in a video that she approached Miguel, expressed how big of a fan she was—including the fact that she [pleases] herself to his hit song “Adorn”—and told him that she’s a student studying health and human services at the University of New Mexico.

Then, the friendly talk took a turn after a photo op. According to Bass, Miguel reached “his hand down my shirt and [took] my breast out of my top.”

In a lengthy post, Bass details the night while highlighting rape culture.

“There is nothing I did or said that warranted this disgusting display of entitlement, rape culture and male privilege,” she wrote. “I approached you respectfully and you still decided my body was not sacred enough to be treated as a human being.”
