Yes, Terry Richardson is making the headlines AGAIN. But this time, he seems to have outdone himself from the last few times we have wrote about him. According to Jezebel.com, model Emma Appleton shared a screenshot of a message from Terry Richardson which was offering her a chance to have a featured Vogue shoot in exchange for sex.
Emma Appleton sent out a tweet on Sunday with a screenshot of the message she received from who she claims to be Terry Richardson. It read "If I can fuck you I will book you in ny for a.shoot for Vogue."
Emma went on to tweet to a few people who replied. Shortly after, she deleted her account. The people over at Gothamist.com were able to track everything she said prior to deleting the account.
Vogue did respond via a statement to Buzzfeed. Communications Director for the US, Hildy Kuryk said, "We have no plans to work with him in the future." After that, we even saw a response from a representative for Terry Richardson. According to Jezebel they said, "This is obviously a fake. Terry did not send this text," said a spokesperson for Richardson, Candice Marks.
"Appleton, who later deleted the message, and whose account now appears deleted, insisted to BuzzFeed that it is authentic. She said she deleted the image because she doesn't want "abuse or attention."
Personally, my only concern about all of this is that the model deleted her account so quickly. It is hard for me to FULLY believe what is being thrown on the table. At the same time, this is definitely a believable story that I would expect to hear about Terry Richardson. At the current moment, there are still not enough facts for me to think the text did in fact come from Terry. Hopefully some more information surfaces in the near future! If anything new comes up, I will update this article.
