Model Emily Ratajkowski claims Robin Thicke grabbed her breasts during the filming of the “Blurred Lines” music video.
Ratajkowski is speaking about the incident publicly for the first time in her new book “My Body.” The Sunday Times obtained an early excerpt of the book.

“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” she said.
Ratajkowski — who was mostly topless in the video, says she felt shame wash over her and feels she didn’t handle the alleged situation as well as she could have.
When the alleged groping happened Emily says the video’s director, Diane Martel, shouted at him, and wrapped production right then and there. Martel confirmed the account to the Sunday Times as well.
She said Robin apologized afterward, and said she doesn’t think he would have done that sober.
During the “Blurred Lines” trial (when Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I.) were being sued by Marvin Gaye’s estate for copyright infringement – Thicke said he had been under the influence of alcohol and Vicodin when speaking to press about the song.
Sounds like that was the case during the video shoot as well. Reps for Thicke have not responded to the claims.
