Emily Ratajkowski Claims Robin Thicke Groped Her In Blurred Lines Video Shoot
| Last updated
Emily Ratajkowski has claimed that Robin Thicke groped her during the filming of the 'Blurred Lines' video.
The model appeared alongside the singer in the music video for the 2013 release, as well as Pharrell Williams and T.I.
And in her new book, 'My Body', the 30-year-old has accused Thicke of fondling her during the shoot, 'cupping her breasts' as he stood behind her.
She writes: "Suddenly, out of nowhere, I felt the coolness and foreignness of a stranger's hands cupping my bare breasts from behind. I instinctively moved away, looking back at Robin Thicke."
Ratajkowski goes on to say that she was enjoying filming, at first, but that Thicke allegedly became drunk and began acting increasingly rude.
She says: "He smiled a goofy grin and stumbled backward, his eyes concealed behind his sunglasses. My head turned to the darkness beyond the set.
"[The director, Diane Martel's] voice cracked as she yelled out to me, 'Are you okay?'.
"I pushed my chin forward and shrugged, avoiding eye contact, feeling the heat of humiliation pump through my body," she said. "I didn't react - not really, not like I should have."
According to reports, the incident was also confirmed to the Times by Martel.
"I remember the moment that he grabbed her breasts," she said.
"One 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!!'."
Martel added that Thicke as apologetic afterwards.
She said: "I don't think he would have done this had he been sober."
In her book, which is set to be released on 19 October, Ratajkowski goes on to say that she didn't mention it in interviews at the time.
She explains that she didn't want to think about it and that she wanted to protect Martel because she had been supportive towards her and the other young models who appeared in the video.
The controversial song was ridiculed by many at the time, despite reaching number one on the Billboard Top 40.
