Model Emily Ratajkowski has alleged that R&B singer Robin Thicke fondled her breast without her consent while shooting “Blurred Lines” music video in 2013.
She made the claim in her upcoming book which is scheduled for release next month. The song and sexy video, including a raunchy web-only version, became a major hit around the world.
According to the 30-year-old, Robin Thicke appeared on the set drunk and all of a sudden started groping her.
“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,” she revealed.
Emily stated that she felt humiliated by Thicke’s action.
Blurred Lines video director Diane Martel confirmed the model’s allegations. “I remember the moment that he grabbed her breasts. He was standing behind her as they were both in profile,” she was quoted as saying.
Martell however added that Thicke apologized for actions.
Blurred Lines is one of the best selling songs of all time. The song topped the charts around the world in 2013 and its and video popularity propelled Emily Ratajkowski to fame.
