The revelation of the model in the upcoming autobiographical book. The singer later apologized for the gesture, claiming that at that time he was constantly drunk
Emily Ratajkowski said she was harassed by the singer Robin Thicke on the set of the song video Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and TI, 2o13 smash. The model talks about the episode in her forthcoming book «My body»
of which the Sunday Times has reported some excerpts in preview.
According to the version of the American model and actress born in 1991, the singer would be back drunk on the set of the video clip directed by Diane Martel only «to shoot with me … Out of nowhere – he remembers – I felt the coldness and the hands of a stranger squeezing my breasts from behind. I instinctively moved away, looking at him ». Ratajkowski then explained that he had never revealed what had happened before, trying to forget it, also to keep the working environment calm. Martel confirmed what had happened: «I remember that moment …. I started screaming“ What are you doing? That’s enough, the shooting is over! ”». Thicke would later apologize, stating that when sober he would not have made that gesture.
Already in the past, the model had – among other things – denied the video that had helped to make it popular. “He ruined my existence,” he told the magazine InStyle. A passage attacked by numerous associations for women’s rights as a “sexist” and for having represented women as an object. The videoclip was – in fact – censored because it showed the models (including Ratajkowski) in topless (and flesh-colored underwear) and the three singers dressed. Without forgetting some sentences with clear sexist references.
It is not the first time that Ratajkowski has reported being a victim of harassment: last year he accused the photographer Johnatan Leder of having sexually assaulted her, in an article written on New York Magazine titled Buying Myself Back. The episode recounted dates back to 2012 when the model allegedly suffered “sexual violence” by the photographer who also published her photographs four years later without her consent. Leder had gone to pick her up for a photo shoot: after a series of photos in lingerie and four glasses of wine, Leader would have suggested that she pose without veils. “It touched me like no one has ever done before or since. I didn’t say a word … I never told anyone what happened, and I tried not to think about it. ” Accusations denied by him: «I’m sorry for her, she has reached a point in her career where she has to resort to tactics like this to gain media exposure and publicity. It is shameful ».
