Photographer Terry Richardson is facing new allegations of sexual misconduct after British model Emma Appleton has claimed Richardson messaged her via Facebook to promise her a Vogue shoot if she would have sex with him. The model was so shocked by the photographer's behaviour that she posted a screen-grab of their conversation to her Twitter account which she subseqently deleted entirely. The message read: 'If I can f*** you I will book you in ny (sic) for a. (sic) shoot for Vogue.'
After receiving backlash messages and comments via the social network, Appleton deleted her twitter profile. Terry's representative has denied the story, claiming it has been fabricated by the model. Emma claims she responded to Terry after the initial message voicing her surprise, and he asked her if it was a "yes of no" to his offer. She says she then responded: 'no, I'm not your girl, bye ha.'
Appleton commented on the incident: 'I've been modelling for 5 years and I've never had this before, it doesn't make it okay. The fact people think this acceptable blows my f*****g mind. See ya.' Terry's rep said: 'This is obviously a fake. Terry did not send this text.'
