EMILY Ratajkowski accused Robin Thicke of crossing the line while filming his music video for Blurred Lines in 2013.
Her claim was backed up by the set director, who witnessed the alleged misconduct and called off the production.
What did Emily Ratajkowski accuse Robin Thicke of?
Ratajkowski says Thicke grabbed her naked breasts while filming his Blurred Lines video. The model made the claim in her upcoming book titled My Body.
“Suddenly, out of nowhere, I felt the coolness and foreignness of a stranger’s hands cupping my bare breasts from behind,” she wrote.
The singer was allegedly drunk, and Ratajkowski claimed he smiled at her when she moved away and looked at him.
The model wrote that the incident made her feel “naked for the first time that day.”
She said she did not speak out in an effort to minimize the incident, as Ratajkowski said it humiliated her.
Did anyone witness the alleged misconduct?
Ratajkowski wrote that set director Diane Martel’s “voice cracked as she yelled out to me, ‘Are you okay?’”
Martel reportedly told the Sunday Times that Thicke had been drinking and “sheepishly apologized.”
She said she witnessed Thicke allegedly grabbing both of the model’s breasts, one breast in each hand.
“He was standing behind her as they were both in profile. I screamed in my very aggressive Brooklyn voice, ‘What the f*** are you doing, that’s it. The shoot is over,'” said Martel.
The Sun reached out to Thicke’s management for comment.
Was Robin Thicke married at the time of the alleged misconduct?
Thicke was married to Paula Patton at the time of the shoot.
The couple divorced a year later, with the actress accusing Thicke, in the court proceedings, of domestic abuse toward her, drug abuse, and infidelity. Thicke has denied the infidelity and abuse allegations.
Patton and Thicke were together for 21 years and married for almost nine. They share a son.
He is currently engaged to April Love Geary, and the couple have three children together. They first appeared together in 2015, and became engaged in 2018.
