Robin Thicke got a lot of international fame after the video he made with a supermodel. But, Robin Thicke crossed the fine, unblurred lines of propriety with the famous supermodel Emily Ratajkowski during the time they were shooting the video. It definitely got him international fame. This is what the alleged victim wrote in a new book.
The supermodel said that she was being professional that’s when Robin Thicke grabbed her bare naked breasts, while they were shooting for the video named “Blurred Lines”, this was also reported in a forthcoming story of the Sunday Times of London.
The song and the hot & sexy video, which included a raunchy web-only version, became a big hit around the world.
“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,” writes Ratajkowski, now 30, in the book “My Body,” set to be released next month.
Emily Ratajkowski was one of three models who appeared in various states of undress in the video, which had lead singers like Pharrell Williams and rapper TI.
Emily did enjoy the shoot in the beginning, as per the report, but later Thicke started misbehaving with her. People also said that he was drunk at that time.
“He smiled a goofy grin and stumbled backwards, 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 book states.
According to the newspaper report, the model said that her experience at the Los Angeles studio for this shoot made her feel “naked for the first time ever that day”.
“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.”
Martel confirmed the incident, according to the report.
“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–k are you doing, that’s it!! The shoot is over!!’”
Martel also said that Robin Thicke had been drinking, he “sheepishly” apologized her and was “contrite” after what all happened.
“I don’t think he would have done this had he been sober,” she said.
This is not the first time that the song has caused controversies. The Marvin Gaye estate won a $5 million lawsuit against Thicke and Farrell saying that “Blurred Lines” was lifted from Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got To Give It Up.”
