Producer Detail, real name Noel Fisher, has lost a $15 million rape lawsuit leveled against him by model Kristina Buch.
Best known for producing and co-writing Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s “Drunk in Love,” Detail has also worked with the likes of Future, Lil Wayne, and Drake. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled that Buch be awarded $15 million after Detail and his attorney I. Mark Bledstein failed to respond to court summons, Associated Press reports.
In two similar lawsuits that have been filed against him, both by former assistants, Detail has denied all the allegations. He added that they have negatively impacted his career and resulted in him being evicted. In total, six women have accused him of sexual misconduct or assault.
Buch, who first filed her lawsuit against Detail last year, accused the producer of raping her after he agreed to help launch her music career in 2016. They first met after she moved to Los Angeles, at which point Detail said he would be happy to work with her. She said that after they had been working in the studio together for a while, he became aggressive and abusive. He allegedly told her that she would need to have sex with him in order to get anywhere, but when she rebuffed his advances he proceeded to rape her.
In a statement, Buch’s attorney William J. Briggs said, “No person should have to suffer the type of abuse Ms. Buch has suffered. In addition to seeking redress for Mr. Fisher’s reprehensible conduct, we hope this will shed a light for all those around Mr. Fisher, including other potential victims.”
Another one of Detail’s alleged victims, Isabella Mack, said the producer held her against her will while he masturbated.
