According to Emily Ratajkowski, Robin Thicke inappropriately touched her while they were filming Blurred Lines.
Thicke allegedly sexually abused the model while they were filming the infamous music video, and the director agrees with her account.
Robin Thicke is accused in a new book of abusing supermodel Emily Ratajkowski while they were filming the video that made him famous worldwide.
When Ratajkowski and Thicke were filming the Blurred Lines video, Ratajkowski said that Thicke touched her naked breasts.
According to the New York Post, the song and video, which included a web-only version, became a worldwide hit.
To my complete surprise, I felt cool and unfamiliar hands touching my bare breasts from behind. The now 30-year-old Ratajkowski recounts the incident in her upcoming book My Body, which will be released next month.
In the video, which also featured Pharrell Williams and rapper TI, Ratajkowski was one of three models who appeared in various degrees of undress.
According to the article, she was initially amused by the shot. But Thicke, who appeared to be inebriated at the time, started behaving poorly.
“His eyes were hidden by his sunglasses as he fell backward with a silly grin on his face. My eyes fixed on the gloom beyond the stage as I swiveled my torso around. “(Director Diane Martel’s) voice trembled as she cried out to me, ‘Are you okay?'” the book says.
According to the publication, the model felt “naked for the first time that day” after her time in the Los Angeles studio.
In order to avoid making eye contact, she put her chin forward and shrugged, feeling the heat of embarrassment surge through her body. In other words, I didn’t react in the way I should have.
According to the article, Martel verified the occurrence.
The moment he grabbed her breasts was a very memorable one for her. “Holding one in each hand, I thought, As they were both seen in profile, he was standing behind her. I yelled, ‘What the f*ck are you doing, that’s it!’ in my most aggressive Brooklyn accent. I can’t believe it’s over already!!
Thicke had been drinking, according to Martel, who apologised “sheepishly” and was “contrite” thereafter.
She speculated that if he had been sober, he wouldn’t have committed the crime.
Not for the first time in its history, the song has sparked debate. It was determined that Thicke and Farrell’s song Blurred Lines was plagiarized from Marvin Gaye’s 1977 single Got To Give It Up, and the estate of the late singer won a $5 million lawsuit against them for it.
