I thought I could trust people, but later I realized that I shouldn’t have believed them. They misused their power. They took advantage of my naivety and young age and put me in uncomfortable situations many times. Everything that we all hear about every day.
These were the people who would constantly tell me that if you do this, I will make your career. This happened to me for years. Nothing ever happened because I stood firm and had the courage to say no.
I have never made an official complaint. Because I was scared. Yes record label executives were adept at intimidation. It took me a long time to recover from all this. ,
Loren does not name those executives but says they were not appointed by Ne Yo. I was suddenly dropped off the label, with no backup plan. Because of which I was emotionally exhausted.
