Guzel Ganieva Model
Guzel Ganieva was in her early 20s when she says Black picked her out of a crowd at a New York event marking International Women’s Day, and invited her to discuss her future over dinner at the upscale restaurant La Grenouille. She alleges that soon after that 2008 encounter, the Apollo Global Management founder took her to a bare studio apartment where, on a mattress on the floor, he subjected her to “forced sadistic sexual acts”.
Black “derived pleasure from humiliating and debasing” Ganieva and intentionally caused her physical pain.
According to a civil complaint filed in New York state supreme court on Tuesday, when Ganieva indicated she was cutting off contact, she says Black turned conciliatory — offering to finance a movie that she could produce, and to use his contacts to facilitate an application at Harvard Business School.
