She claims the 52-year-old had asked her to model a perfume for V magazine, and that during the shoot he "exposed his penis and forced himself into her mouth". "It was like literally being shot with a stun gun", she told the outlet.
Jones says just seconds after he closed the door behind her, he caught her off-guard with a demand for her to get on her knees and pleasure him.
In October, controversial photographer Terry Richardson was unceremoniously dumped by several brands after publications began banning him over scores of sexual coercion allegations against him. "I wasn't doing anything".
The NYPD is investigating sexual assault allegations against celebrity photographer Terry Richardson after a number of women came forward with stories of his lurid behavior, law enforcement sources said.
"I was like a deer in the headlights", she said. "But in a weird way, that would have made it easier to forgive myself for not fighting him off".
Richardson's attorney has fired back to the NY Daily News while asserting that Bernstein's contact with the photographer was all "consensual", but she's holding her ground.
Richardson's lawyer told the paper that Ms Bernstein was aware that she was shooting "sexually explicit photos" with no connection to any magazine or ad campaign. Multiple accusers told the newspaper that investigators from NYPD's Special Victims Division have scheduled sit-down interviews in the wake of new reports that Richardson assaulted models in his Manhattan studio. Model Lindsay Jones also told HuffPost earlier in December that Richardson attempted to force her to perform oral sex on him in 2007, then continued to sexually harass her after.
