News 20/10/2017

Tom Jones has said that the abuse and harassment issues Hollywood is grappling with are also a problem in the music business.

The Welsh singer has had a successful music career spanning over 50 years, and is also now a coach on The Voice in the UK.

He told BBC Radio 5 that he experienced harassment first hand as he was starting out, and asked about the Harvey Weinstein saga, said: "Things have always happened in the music industry as well."

"There were a few things like that. But you avoid it. You just walk out... But what's tried on women is tried on men as well."

"Things happen in showbusiness, and sometimes things are covered up and then they come to light and other people come forward - it's like taking the cork off of a bottle."
