Grammy Award-winning producer Detail, who has worked with stars including Beyonce, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj, has been charged with raping five women and sexually assaulting another.
The attacks reportedly took place between 2010 and 2018, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Thursday.
Detail, real name Noel Christopher Fisher, helped create hits including Beyonce’s 2013 song Drunk in Love.
He denies all the allegations.
The 41-year-old was arrested on Wednesday and held on bail worth around $ 6.3million (£ 4.8million).
Prosecutors added that most of the alleged incidents – with women aged 18 to 31 at the time – took place at her home. If found guilty, he faces a maximum of 225 years in prison.
The Detroit producer has also worked with Jennifer Lopez, Wiz Khalifa, Future and Beyonce’s ex-Destiny’s Child teammate Kelly Rowland.
