New York Magazine Allegedly Working On Piece Positing Terry Richardson Is Innocent

  • New York magazine is allegedly working on a cover story that portrays celebrity photographer Terry Richardson sympathetically against claims from young models that he has sexually assaulted and coerced them, according to a source who spoke to Jezebel. Richardson has previously called allegations against him a “witch hunt.” The source told Jez that “the girls have no idea that they are going to be the losers.” We’ll have to wait and see. [Jezebel]
  • Usher has spoken up to defend his protege Justin Bieber: “I can tell you that he hasn’t always chosen the path of his greatest potential, but he is unequivocally not a racist.” [The Grio]
  • Kris Jenner said that she “never really gave [it] a second thought” that Jay Z and Beyoncé didn’t show up to Kanye and Kim’s wedding. Yeah, right. [US Weekly] Keep reading »

Neil Patrick Harris Goes Naked With Nothing But A Top Hat For His Penis On The Cover Of Rolling Stone

Neil Patrick Harris Goes Naked With Nothing But A Top Hat For His Penis On The Cover Of Rolling Stone

The amazing Neil Patrick Harris, who currently stars in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Broadway, isn’t leaving much to the imagination on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone, is he? Unfortunately, the actor was photographed by predatory perv Terry Richardson, which kinda kills my enthusiasm for this shot. Really, RS? Couldn’t you have hired someone else to hang a top hat on Doogie’s dick? [Rolling Stone]

Terry Richardson Reportedly Offering Vogue Photo Shoots In Exchange For Sex

Terry Richardson Reportedly Offering Vogue Photo Shoots In Exchange For Sex

Pervtographer Terry Richardson is (allegedly) at it again! Yesterday, model Emma Appleton (right) posted the above screenshot (left) of a Facebook message she received from Richardson, outright offering her a spot in a Vogue shoot if she agreed to fuck him. Hmm, I wonder if Anna Wintour approved of this? Appleton posted the screenshot initially to Instagram, but when Gawker and other media outlets picked up on the story, she deleted the photo and her Twitter. Richardson’s rep, who sure is being kept busy these last few months, told Buzzfeed, “This is obviously a fake. Terry did not send this text.”

Well, it’s not a text, it’s a Facebook message received via the messenger app. But also, how is it “obviously” a fake? Is there some “obvious” Photoshop giveaway that I’m missing? Is, say, Terry Richardson’s real Facebook account under a different name and therefore this isn’t him? I mean, how is it OBVIOUSLY fake? I’m just wondering. Keep reading »

Meet Stylist Leslie Lessin, Terry Richardson's Alleged Partner In Pervtography

Last week, a former model named Charlotte Waters revealed on Reddit that she was allegedly sexually coerced and manipulated by Richardson at a photoshoot when she was 19. Now 24, Waters described in detail both on Reddit and in a subsequent interview with Vocativ how Richardson coerced her into performing sexually explicit acts with him as he and a female assistant took photos and cheered her on. Reading Waters stomach-turning story, I was disgusted but nonetheless not at all surprised by Richardson’s behavior; after all, we’ve heard about it before from other models, like Jamie Peck and Rie Rasmussen, who’ve experienced it firsthand as well. But I was immediately curious about this female assistant Waters described as being just as participatory in her degradation as Richardson himself, even taking photographs while Richardson ejaculated on her face. Well, Vocativ did some digging. The “probably 40 or 45ish … with dark hair and a little bit of work done on her face” woman that assisted Richardson during not only Waters’ shoot, but Peck’s as well, has been positively identified by both as Leslie Lessin, a stylist that Richardson has worked with professionally for years, including a recent cover shoot for Harper’s Bazaar featuring Miley Cyrus.

Fashion photographer Terry Richardson has released a statement (posted to at least Page Six and Huffington Post, so far) defending himself against the mounting complaints from young models who have accused the “porno-chic” photog of sexual abuse.

Earlier this week, a former model revealed on Reddit that she was allegedly sexually assaulted by Richardson at a photoshoot when she was 19. She later identified herself as 24-year-old Charlotte Waters and she is just one of many young models to speak out about his eerily-similar inappropriate behavior with young women. In 2010, Danish model Rie Rasmussen publicly confronted Richardson about allegedly abusing young models and Jezebel has gathered numerous stories of abuse from models and stylists here. (Styleite has a comprehensive timeline of Terry’s creepy behavior here.)

Richardson lashed out against the “witch hunt,” calling the “false allegations” nothing more than “Internet gossip.” Keep reading »
