Emily Ratajkowski blames memory loss for waiting nearly a decade to accuse singer Robin Thicke of groping her breasts.

She now claims she only remembered the 2013 incident on the set of the "Blurred Lines" music video after Thicke recently blocked her on Instagram.

Ratajkowski, 30, made the shocking claim against the 44-year-old singer in her book "My Body, which is set to be published on November 9.

Ratajkowski claims she was reminded of the groping incident when she noticed Thicke had blocked her on Instagram.

However, the top model has a history of waiting nearly a decade to accuse someone of sexual assault.

In an interview in 2020, Emily accused 71-year-old photographer Jonathan Leder of sexually assaulting her during a photo shoot in 2012.

She told USA Today that she'd hesitated to speak out sooner because she did not want to give Leder publicity.


In her book, Ratajkowski detailed the groping incident on the set.

"Suddenly, out of nowhere, I felt the coolness and foreignness of a stranger's hands cupping my bare breasts from behind," she wrote, according to the Sunday Times of London newspaper. "I instinctively moved away, looking back at Robin Thicke."

"He smiled a goofy grin and stumbled backward, his eyes concealed behind his sunglasses. My head turned to the darkness beyond the set."

She wrote that director, Diane Martel, yelled to her, "Are you OK?"

Martel, who was nominated for the Video of the Year for "Blurred Lines", corroborated Ratajkowski's allegations to the Sunday Times.

"I remember the moment that he grabbed her breasts. One in each hand. He was standing behind her as they were both in profile."

Martel told the Times that the singer had been drinking, and he "sheepishly" apologized after the incident. Martel said she had taken steps to make sure women felt comfortable on her set.

Martel says:

"Robin sheepishly apologized. As if he knew it was wrong without understanding how it might have felt for Emily."
