The Crown’s fifth season features Dodi Al Fayed, who tragically passed away in 1997 alongside Diana, Princess of Wales.
It’s not apparent whether serious the two were, though: Hasnat Khan, a British Pakistani cardiac surgeon whom she reportedly referred to as the love of her life, and Princess Diana had just separated. Kelly Fisher, a California model who was associated to Fayed in the past, said that she and Fayed were engaged at the time he began courting Diana.
Here is all the information that really have to know about Kelly Fisher from The Crown, played by Erin Richards.
She was raised in Louisville, Kentucky, where she was born.
She stated to Aiken Women in 2014, I was raised in Kentucky until I was around eight years old.
We frequently moved due to my father’s job only as vice president of a multinational corporation. At the age of 16, while residing in Toronto, Ontario, she began modelling. She soon began working for brands like Calvin Klein and Armani.
In 1996, Kelly and Dodi Al Fayed began dating.
They first met in July 1996 in Paris. Kelly claimed that when Fayed began seeing Princess Diana, they were allegedly engaged. The Royal Courts of Justice made call transcripts among Fisher and Fayed public in 2008. Fisher revealed to Fayed, I don’t comprehend how someday we’re in love—and then. She also yelled You are f****** nuts, at another time. The entire time, we were together. You were aware of it.
Fisher sued Fayed in early August 1997, saying they had a contract in place, were scheduled to get married on August 9, and were being represented by attorney Gloria Allred.
The lawsuit claims that Fayed, whose father owns the Ritz Hotel in Paris and the Harrods department store in London, promised Fisher $500,000 to give up her modeling career in America and go to Paris in order to spend more time with him. According to the lawsuit, Fayed admitted to her that his fiancee’s employment embarrassed his family. The remaining $440,000 was a claim in the litigation.
At the press conference, Allred said that Mr. Fayed needed to accept accountability for the woman he abandoned at the altar and handled with such utter disdain. With no consideration for her at all, he carelessly wasted her affection.
No one’s daughter needs to be abused the way my daughter was, her mother, Judith Dunaway, told reporters while she was present at the news conference. He was quite nasty to Kelly, who loved and trusted him. Dodi Fayed ought to feel guilty. Additionally, Dunaway said that in November 1996, she gave Fayed permission to marry her daughter.
Fayed acknowledged knowing her at the time but insisted they were never engaged.
Fisher dismissed her claim after Princess Diana and Fayed tragically passed away. She has given me the go-ahead as her attorney to drop the case she had against Mr. Fayed out of sympathy for the tragedy and sad loss the Fayed family has endured. Allred stated on September 1, 1997,
She does have the legal right to prosecute the litigation against his family after his death, but she has unilaterally opted not to use that right.
