Emily says that Robin grabbed her bare breasts while they were filming the music video.
“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 reportedly wrote in the book.
“He smiled a goofy grin and stumbled backward, his eyes concealed behind his sunglasses. My head turned to the darkness beyond the set. [The director, Diane Martel’s] voice cracked as she yelled out to me, ‘Are you okay?,’” she wrote. She added that the experience made her feel “naked for the first time that day.”
She added, “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.”
Emily reportedly wrote that while she enjoyed the shoot at the beginning, Robin began to behave differently later on and appeared to be drunk.
The video director, Diane Martel, confirmed the incident to Sunday Times of London.
“I remember the moment that he grabbed her breasts,” she said. “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!!’”
Diane says that Robin “sheepishly” apologized. She added, “I don’t think he would have done this had he been sober.”
Emily previously discussed how the video is now the “bane of [her] existence.”
