Terry Richardson Denies Having Sex With Lindsay Lohan
There’s a lot of news circulating about Terry Richardson as of late, and none of it is particularly good. The photographer who has shot models and celebrities in risqué shoots under various contracts is in the middle of a few new allegations for his inappropriate behavior with models.
In a lengthy profile piece from New York Magazine titled “Is Terry Richardson an Artist or a Predator?,” the photographer slams a few allegations. One of them is that he has not slept with Lindsay Lohan. Although he has photographed Lohan at the Chateau Marmont at various points throughout the career, and most of those photos are pretty suggestive, Richardson cleared his name when it comes to the infamous sex list that was leaked out last spring.
Terry Richardson didn’t say much about his time with Lohan but he did make it clear that they didn’t have sex.
“LiLo. Somehow she said we spent a romantic night making love at the Chateau Marmont. Which never happened. Then, on the internet, people are like, ‘He did this and that.’ But it’s totally untrue.”
Although we may never know the whole story between Terry Richardson and Lindsay Lohan, model after model has come forward to tell their stories about Richardson’s inappropriate behavior during shoots. One model Ziff, 19, explains that her mainstream fashion magazine ad became a topless shoot. She told New York Magazine:
“I felt pressured to comply because my agent had told me to make a good impression because he was an important photographer who shot for all the major magazines and brands.”
Another model, Sena Cech, also 19, was pressured to make a good impression on Terry Richardson because of his working relationships with GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, etc. During Cech’s shoot Richardson allegedly took all of his clothes off and instructed Cech to “grab his d–k and twist it and squeeze it really hard.” Still, Richardson defends himself and claims that everything is consensual in his shoots.
Despite having people in his corner like actor Jared Leto, and a few publications that still work with Richardson despite the allegations that have cropped up, Vogue is done working with Terry Richardson. Back in April after model Emma Appleton came forward with an allegation that Richardson sent a private message offering to shoot her for Vogue in exchange for sex, a spokesperson from U.S. Vogue told The Wrap:
“The last assignment Terry Richardson had for U.S. Vogue appeared in the July 2010 issue and we have no plans to work with him in the future.”
Although we don’t know the whole picture on these allegations, there’s one thing that Richardson can’t deny and it’s that the internet is making it easier to discover just how much has piled up over the years on Richardson’s alleged behavior. So much had piled up against Terry that he’s likened the internet to “a cancer.”
