Bebe Rexha has claimed she could ‘bring down a big chunk’ of the music industry if she ‘spoke up’ about her real experiences.

In a series of frustrated posts she shared on X on Tuesday, the tearful hitmaker suggested that things are going on behind the scenes in the music industry that she could expose.

‘I could bring down a BIG chunk of this industry. I AM frustrated. I Have been UNDERMINED,’ Bebe wrote. ‘I’ve been so quiet for the longest time.’

‘I haven’t seen the signs even though people constantly are bringing them up and they have been SO OBVIOUS,’ the 34-year-old, who has worked with the likes of Dolly Parton, continued.

‘And when I have spoken up I’ve been silence [sic] and PUNISHED by this industry. Things must change or I’m telling ALL of my truths. The good the bad and the ugly,’ she vowed in a tweet seen 2.5million times.

In the comments section, one fan pointed out that Bebe wasn’t originally credited as a featured artist on David Guetta’s 2015 track Hey Mama, despite co-writing the song and recording the chorus and backing vocals.

‘Nobody should be forgiven for the time they took your name out of Hey Mama,’ fan @shadyjessicuh wrote.

Bebe then quoted her tweet, replying: ‘My love. That? Compared to all the other stuff you don’t know about? That’s child’s play.’

She also claimed that fans hadn’t even ‘heard 5 percent’ publicly of what she had gone through, adding: ‘You have NO IDEA.’

The Take Me Home singer was then asked if she was sharing the post to promote her new song, I’m The Drama, which was released on Sunday.

Fan @emmamaezin quipped, ‘Doing this during promoting a new single I’m The Drama is perfect timing – marketing or not!’ to which Bebe responded: ‘Marketing? I have no budget for that. I’M FED UP.’

The singer soon returned to X to admit that she ‘felt hopeless’.

‘This is not just coming from a place of anger. It’s sadness. I’m sitting in my hotel room in London crying my eyes out,’ she revealed.

‘I’ve felt hopeless for the longest time. I’ve been walking a lot through this city and meeting fans and they have really ignited something inside of me.’

Bebe also thanked her fans, with whom she is often frank, admitting that they had ‘given me the strength’ as they rallied around the star, praising her strength and authenticity.

The US star, who had her first UK number one thanks to collaborating with David Guetta on I’m Good (Blue) in 2022, last grabbed headlines just last month after she was forced to eject people from one of her gigs.

In June 2023, the singer had filed assault charges after being left with a black eye when she was struck mid-song and rushed off stage by medics.

This incident launched a bizarre spate of flying objects at gigs, with everyone from Adam Lambert to Harry Styles being hit with various unwelcome items.

When history seemed set to repeat itself, Bebe paused her entire set in Green Bay, Wisconsin at the Summer Fun Days Showcase.

While approximately 10 people were removed by security over the course of her gig, she told fans: ‘Out, Out… OR if you want to hit me in the face, I happened to have pressed charges to the other guy, I’d love to become richer, so go right ahead honey.

‘But I’m not… I’m not inviting that, please, it was a joke,’ she quickly added to discourage the behaviour.
