2017 has been a monumental year in several ways. Most importantly, it’s been a year in which celebrities have opened up about their sexual assault experiences. Timothy Heller is no exception. She’s Melanie Martinez’s ex-best friend, and she said she’s been wronged, big time.

Timothy accused Martinez for raping her, and Martinez has now repsonded with a song.The new song, called ‘Piggyback’, has gone viral for many reasons. In the lyrics, Martinez calls out “fake” and “plastic” people who’ve used her to get fame and stardom.

Martinez originally appeared as a contestant on The Voice, but didn’t go through to the final round. She wasn’t discouraged, though, and made an Indie YouTube page for herself.

The singer quickly made a name for herself with her artsy soulful style – and her hair, that’s split in the middle with two different dyes.

“I worked hard for my s–t, put my love in this s–t, now you’re trying to kill my name for some fame, what is this?” she sings.


Heller has since moved on to a new best friend. (Source: Twitter)

“You’re lying your way to try and gain a piece of me when you could never come close ’cause I know my destiny.”

‘Piggyback’ is a clear response to ex-best friend Timothy Heller’s accusations against the singer.

Heller gave a detailed and graphic description of how Martinez made inappropriate sexual advances towards her. The singer also apparently knew Heller had a boyfriend but pushed anyway.

“The bottom line that I need to always remind myself is that: I said no,” she wrote.


She said she didn’t try to stop it because she felt out of control. (Source: Twitter)

“For TWO NIGHTS STRAIGHT. It doesn’t matter that I didn’t resist during the action. I had been broken down. She knew I didn’t want to, I made that clear,” she finished.

Martinez allegedly assaulted Heller with forced oral sex and also inserted a sex toy inside her.

“I have kept this secret for years, convincing myself that it wasn’t a big deal and I wasn’t hurt by it. The thought of accepting that my best friend raped me seems insane,” Heller wrote.

“But I began to get responses I wasn’t expecting. Concerned ones. It’s hard to say someone you loved raped you. Someone you STILL love.” 


According to Heller, Martinez manipulated her whenever she felt moody. (Source: Instagram)

She continued to write that Martinez had exercised immense “power and control” over her and she felt helpless in front of her best friend’s moods.
