Photoshoot in exchange for sex : Terry Richardson’s alleged offer

Celebrity photographer and music video director Terry Richardson has been accused of offering a photoshoot to British model Emma Appleton in exchange for sex.

The message, which supposedly came from Richardson and was sent to Appleton stated:

“If I can f*** you I will book you in NY for a shoot for Vogue.”

According to Gawker, the photographer has been “throwing around sex offers” and called him “The dirtbag of the millennium.”

Richardson’s most recognized work to date is a controversial music video he shot with Miley Cyrus entitled ‘Wrecking Ball’. While a rep for Richardson has denied the whole thing, the rumor engine about Richardson’s off-camera attitude has been circulating in the news for many months.

Buzzfeed notes that back in March, Charlotte Waters, a former model highlighted a situation where she had met Richardson at a fashion shoot and he had made “unwanted sexual advances”.

Richardson faces growing opposition following the revelation as Vogue announced Sunday that they had ended their professional relationship with the photographer. The Wrap confirmed that communications director Hildy Kuryk had told them Vogue would no longer work with Richardson on future shoots.
