Emily Ratajkowski claims she was touched by Robin Thicke

Emily Ratajkowski alleges Robin Thicke groped her on Blurred Lines music video set

American model-actress Emily Ratajkowski has accused musician Robin Thicke of “cupping her bare breasts” while filming the music video for ‘Blurred Lines’.

The 30-year-old bikini model-and-actress was made famous when she starred in the 2013 promo, in which she appears nude and musicians Pharrell Williams and Robin are fully clothed, singing “You know you want it” at her.

And in an excerpt of her new tome, ‘My Body’, obtained by the New York Post newspaper, the model has claimed that Thicke was drunk when he supposedly grabbed her chest on set.
She wrote: “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.

“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?'”

Ratajkowski continued: “I pushed my chin forward and shrugged, avoiding eye contact, feeling the heat of humiliation pump through my body. I didn’t react – not really, not like I should have.”

Director Diane confirmed she witnessed the whole thing and immediately wrapped the shoot.

She said in an interview: “I remember the moment that he grabbed her breasts. 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.'”

Diane claimed Thicke apologised and insisted: “I don’t think he would have done this had he been sober.”

Ratajkowski previously confessed she didn’t actually like the idea of the project, which was later accused of being “rapey”, when first approached, and also didn’t care that it was Pharrell who wanted her to do it.

The 30-year-old made the allegation in her upcoming book “My Body”, set to be released on 9 November. According to the description on the publisher’s website, the book will explore feminism, sexuality, and men’s treatment of women.

Women are generally supported and sympathised with when they open up about any sexual abuse they’ve experienced in their lives, but it appears this was not the case for model and entrepreneur Emily Ratajkowski. The 30-year-old has accused R&B singer Robin Thicke of groping her during the filming of the music video for his 2013 hit “Blurred Lines”.

The lyrics of the song are full of sexual innuendos and the video shows Robin Thicke, rapper T.I., and singer Pharell Williams dancing in the company of three models. At some point during the video Emily Ratajkowski stands next to Robin Thicke covering her naked breasts with her hand. The singer also released an uncensored version of the video where all models, including Ms Ratajkowski, appear topless.

According to an excerpt from Emily Ratajkowski’s book, published in The Sunday Times, the five-time Grammy nominee came to the set drunk and touched her breasts during the filming of the video.

“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. 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’s] voice cracked as she yelled out to me, ‘Are you okay?'”, reads the excerpt from the book.

The model says that she shrugged her chin forward and avoided eye contact with the singer and then felt “the heat of humiliation pump through” her body. “I didn’t react – not really, not like I should have”, Ratajkowksi writes.

Speaking to The Sunday Times Diane Martel, the director of the video, confirmed that the incident occurred.

“I remember the moment that he grabbed her breasts. 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*ck are you doing, that’s it!! The shoot is over!'”, she said.

Martel stressed that the singer “sheepishly” apologised and looked “contrite” following the incident. “I don’t think he would have done this had he been sober”, she said.

The news of Emily Ratajkowski’s accusations quickly went viral, but the 30-year-old model didn’t receive much support from netizens.
