According to a claim by supermodel Emily Ratajkowski in her brand new book, there were some lines that were crossed during the filming of her famous “Blurred Lines” video with superstar singer Robin Thicke.
The video and song are iconic, one of the most successful hits of all-time, but Ratajkowski said Thicke took some liberties during the video filming she was shocked by.
Here’s what it says about the incident in her new book called “My Body,” which is set to be released next month.
“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.”
According to Ratajkowski, things started going south because Thick was drunk during the end of the shoot, which affected his behavior.
Here’s more from the book.
“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?’”
The video also featured Pharrell Williams, TI, along with three other models.
The director Martel backed up the model’s claims according to a story in the London Times.
“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–k are you doing, that’s it!! The shoot is over!!’”
Both Martel and Ratajkowski said they don’t think it would have happened if Thicke had not been drinking.
Blurred Lines became one of the top-selling singles of all time.
