American model Emily Ratajkowski recently wrote an article for The New York Times and the explosive details in it have been leaving the internet stunned. The supermodel spoke about an incident that happened in the year 2012 when she was just starting with her career in modelling.
She has written that when she was just 20 years old, her agent contacted her with a photoshoot opportunity where she would feature in a magazine called ‘Darius’. She stated that the shoot was unpaid and the only benefit she had from it was in terms of ‘exposure’.
Emily Ratajkowski was asked to take a bus to Catskills where photographer Jonathan Leder would pick her up and take her to his apartment. She was also asked to spend the night at his apartment in New York which she agreed to. Upon arriving at the destination, she learnt that she had to pose in lingerie and it was not something she was prepared for.
The model also wrote that she wanted to seem mature and hence she accepted a glass of red wine which was offered by Jonathan Leder. After a session with the lingerie on, she was asked to strip naked for a few shots. The model claimed that she was quite drunk at this point and was also bothered by the bright flash of the camera.
Speaking about the molestation, Emily Ratajkowski wrote that Jonathan Leder put his fingers inside her without her consent, when they were settled on the couch after the shoot. She also revealed that he kept pushing in, causing her a great deal of pain. She caught hold of his wrist and shoved it away without uttering a word. She also said that most of it is a blur but she remembered the horrid feeling. He walked away after the incident and she took the bus back home in the morning.
