Taylor and her co-suspect, Ali Ebrahimi, are said to have demanded money and beaten and tied Mr. Butler, who arrived with champagne but denied that he wanted sex.
“You knew about her status on television,” attorney Michael Gatenby alleged during Taylor’s non-committal hearing of custody, causing bodily harm and racketeering on Wednesday in Brisbane Magistrates Court.
“No, I didn’t know because her name was Katy (on the app),” Mr. Butler replied.
“Haven’t you seen a picture of her?” Mr. Gatenby asked.
“I used to watch The Block, so if I saw a picture, I would have recognized her, but I wouldn’t,” Mr. Butler replied.
He said he only knew of her identity when Fortitude Valley police informed him.

Mr. Butler claims that he and “Katy” drank wine and talked about Fleetwood Mac before going to the bedroom.
It was there, after kissing and cuddling and allegedly groping Taylor, Mr. Butler was asked to pay for sex.
“She wanted money and I refused. Then I wanted to leave, “Butler said.
“You understand how a prostitution scheme works … but you were surprised?” Mister Gatenby said.
“I remember shouting,” He’s got no money! Mister Butler said.
Mr. Butler claims that he was subsequently caught and beaten by a man, who was also in the unit, dragged into the kitchen and tied with an iPhone cable.
During this time, Mr. Butler says that his cell phone has been taken from him.
Police claim that an online transaction has been made from his account to withdraw funds, but details of who this would be have not been disclosed in court.
Mr. Butler later walked to a police station and reported the incident.
Taylor and Ebrahimi were later charged.
They have committed to appear in Brisbane court on a date to be determined.
