Khalid has claimed he was groped by a fan.

The 19-year-old singer/songwriter - whose full name is Khalid Amhearst Robinson - took to Twitter on Monday (20.11.17) to reveal that he was allegedly inappropriately touched on his bottom, though he did not disclose where the incident is said to have taken place.

He wrote on Twitter: ''lol I go to talk to a fan and she grabs my ass, how f**kin old are we??? (sic)''

The 'Young Dumb & Broke' hitmaker says he loves getting the chance to meet with his fans, however, they should also be respectful.

He added: ''I love interacting and talking to fans but I also love respecting others so don't disrespect me when I'm being nice (sic)''

When one of his 1.4 million followers asked what he did after it happened, he simply wrote: ''I left.''

Khalid says he tried to remain calm in the awkward situation and didn't show any ''anger''.

When another follow said if it was the other way around it ''would've been blown up'', he replied: ''yeah I ignored it bc I don't like showing anger in front of anyone (sic)''

in the wake of the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein and several other high-profile stars such as Kevin Spacey, Khalid said that misconduct of any kind is ''unacceptable'' from both men and women.

In reply to a user who asked: ''i hope you're okay. sexual assault in completely unacceptable (sic)'', he wrote: ''sexual assault/harassment happens on both ends and you're right. It's unacceptable (sic)''

Khalid reassured his fans saying that the person had by no means made him think twice about interacting with his fans in the future.

He wrote: ''One sh*tty person isn't going to keep me away from anybody, I really love you guys (sic)''

The 'Coaster' singer said that he decided to speak up about what happened to him to encourage other people who have been through something similar to talk about it.

He said: ''spoke about it bc it can happen to anybody! (sic)''
