Robin Thicke Accused Of Groping Model Emily Ratajkowski!
It appears Robin Thicke still can’t escape his hit song/video “Blurred Lines.” First Thicke got hit with Copyright infringement and now a sexual assault claim? Wow…
CelebnMusic247.com reports that 30-year-old model, Emily Ratajkowski, is alleging that Robin Thicke groped her bare breasts from behind while filming the Blurred Lines music video in 2013.
Emily Ratajkowski recounts the alleged incident in her upcoming book, writing:
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.
“Blurred Lines” Controversial Past Continues!
The music video in question has a controversial past because of the lyrics that continually say, “I know you want it.”
The song has been banned at some colleges for allegedly glorifying rape culture.
In the video, there are many models, including Emily Ratajkowski, who are seen dancing in revealing clothes – some models are also topless in the video. Rappers, T.I. and Pharrell Williams were also featured in the music video and song.
Though, Ratajkowski recalls feeling humiliated and regrets how she handled the groping.
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.
Apparently, Emily was NOT into the concept of “Blurred Lines.”
The director of the music video, Diane Martel, says she witnessed the alleged groping and reportedly yelled at Robin Thicke to stop.
Robin did something impulsive, he had been drinking which is not unusual on a music video set. He grabbed her breasts with two hands. Once he heard me scream and felt Emily push his hands off of her he was rattled. He realized that what he had done was insane. He sheepishly apologized.
Ratajkowski continued saying, the whole incident made her feel dehumanized:
With that one gesture, Robin Thicke had reminded everyone on set that we women weren’t actually in charge. I didn’t have any real power as the naked girl dancing around in his music video. I was nothing more than the hired mannequin.
It’s been reported that Thicke, 44, apologized on set, but for Ratajkowski the incident has continued to bother her since.
It’s funny how women continue to bring up the past on men since the whole #MeToo Movement, but if a guy brings up a similar incident it’s completely overlooked.
Robin has yet responded to the resurfaced accusations.
