Emily Ratajkowski's Blurred Lines Co-Star CONFIRMS Robin Thicke Groped Her!

Emily Ratajkowski's Blurred Lines Co-Star CONFIRMS Robin Thicke Groped Her!

Emily Ratajkowski‘s co-star in Robin Thicke‘s Blurred Lines music video is sharing what she saw that day!

As we reported back in 2021, EmRata accused the singer of groping her while on set in 2013. In her book My Body, the 31-year-old model wrote about her experience while filming the controversial video. Originally, she wrote, she didn’t mind the required nudity for the gig and was chill with the atmosphere on set. But sadly that all came to a screeching halt when she was allegedly taken advantage of by the musician:

“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 Thicke acted drunk after the incident, which makes some sense — though clearly intoxication is no excuse for his behavior! She went on to say she felt naked “for the first time” that day after the incident even though she’d been filming topless for most of the time:

“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.”

Director Diane Martel confirmed the incident to The Sunday Times of London after Emily came forward, saying:

“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!!’”

And now the Gone Girl actress has someone else backing up her story — her co-star, model Elle Evans. The 33-year-old spoke to Bustle last week and said the entire video shoot’s tone changed after the incident — but no one came forward publicly until Emily shared the story herself in her book. She recalls her co-star leaving quickly after the shoot was done:

“What I remember is that, toward the end of the shoot, Emily did leave very abruptly. There was kind of a bit of a scramble among the production team, like, ‘What are we gonna do? How do we shoot the rest of the video without her?’ I was told that she had a flight to catch.”

Yeah, a flight getting the hell away from the awful situation she was put in! Just terrible…

Elle said her experience filming was the opposite of the I Feel Pretty star’s experience. Unlike what EmRata wrote in her book, that she felt like a “hired mannequin” alongside the singer, Elle said filming the music video made her feel powerful:

“The direction we were given is that we were untouchable. You know, ‘Every single guy in place wants you. They would do anything to get you, yet you’re not giving it up.’ I remember Diane shouting, ‘That’s too sexy. Don’t be too sexy. This is not the club, you know. This is not a lap dance.’ There’s parts where I’m sitting on the stool and T.I. is brushing my hair. [Diane] wanted me just kind of chilling, just kind of a little bit of a shimmy shake. I felt like I was in the power position, even among all these superstar recording artists. It was a really great feeling.”

The model said she was only 23 when she was cast in the video. At that time, she doesn’t mind admitting, she was just using her “looks to make money.” Now a decade later she’s a different person. Elle Evans is Elle Evans Bellamy — she’s married with a daughter to Muse singer Matt Bellamy. She’s also an actress, whom you might have seen in Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse or Netflix‘s The Kissing Booth 2. And despite having no regrets from making the video, Elle says she doesn’t want to be remembered just for that anymore — considering the multiple controversies that came to surround the song and video:

“I certainly didn’t want to be remembered only as the girl from Blurred Lines. It did become something I didn’t wanna talk about. But I think it shouldn’t be forgotten, because of the lessons that we learned from it.”

Thicke still hasn’t responded to any of the accusations, and EmRata says she hasn’t heard a word from him since 2013 — a whole decade ago now. Ugh…
