Model wins $15mn rape lawsuit against Grammy-winning music producer
The list of celebrated artistes associated with Noel Fisher aka Detail is a long one. Yet, the composer who won a Grammy for his music production on Jay Z and Beyonce’s Drunk in Love is now in the limelight for the wrong reasons. Associated Press has reported that a model and aspiring singer who alleged in a lawsuit that she was raped and sexually and emotionally abused by Detail has been awarded $15 million.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge made the ruling for Kristina Buch—whose name was made public via their lawsuits and public statements—who said she met Fisher at a recording studio when she was working as a model after arriving in Los Angeles from Indiana in 2016. The allegations against the Los Angeles-based producer, who has also made tunes for Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Wiz Khalifa, was made late last year.
Initially, Detail claimed that he never received the court notices and had no knowledge of the proceedings.
It is reported that Buch is one of six women, some established professionals and others music-industry newcomers, who have spoken out publicly against what they said was Fisher’s sexual aggression. At least two, both former assistants, have filed their own lawsuits.
