Emily Ratajkowski accuses photographer Jonathan Leder of sexually assaulting her. She says the photographer assaulted her during a photoshoot at his flat in 2012.

Later in 2016, Leder published a book of Emily’s photos. She claims this was done without her consent, but Leder refuses it vehemently.

In an essay published on Tuesday in ‘The Cut‘ titled “Buying Myself Back: When Does a Model Own Her Own Image?”, Emily shares the incident.

She recalls that her then agent made her go to Leder’s flat for an unpaid photoshoot for ‘Darius’. The shoot required her to stay there overnight.

Emily says that there were two children and a female makeup artist in his flat.

But she was shocked to know that the shoot would be a lingerie one. Her agent did not mention this to her beforehand. However, considering that she had done many lingerie shoots before, she didn’t hesitate.

She accepted Leder’s offer of red wine, which he continued offering throughout the shoot.

After the lingerie shots, Emily says Leder said they will try naked shots now.

She writes: “The second I dropped my clothes, a part of me disassociated…fixating on the idea of how I might look through his camera lens.”

When the shoot ended, the makeup artist left the room, leaving Emily alone with Leder.

She writes that that is when he sexually assaulted her.
