he former head of the organisation behind the Grammy Awards on Wednesday was sued by a musician who accused him of drugging and raping her in 2018.

The New York Times, which first reported the story, says the state suit filed in Manhattan accuses Neil Portnow — who stepped down as head of the Recording Academy in 2019 over his disparaging comments toward women — of sexual battery. It also accuses the Academy of negligence.

In a statement to AFP, the Recording Academy vowed to “vigorously defend the Academy in this lawsuit.”

“We continue to believe the claims to be without merit,”
