There has been a long standing rumor that Terry Richardson was sexually assaulting his clients and now he has been banned from working with several major fashion magazines amid resurfacing sexual harassment claims.
According to Daily Mail:
Vogue, GQ and Vanity Fair are among those who were told to ‘kill’ any scheduled shoots with the snapper by parent group Condé Nast International.
Mr Richardson has been the subject of widespread allegations of sexually abusing models over his lengthy career, accusations he has constantly denied.
The Hollywood mogul is facing multiple accusations of sexual assault and harassment from more than 40 woman including actress Gwyneth Paltrow.
On Friday, Mr Richardson addressed allegations directed at him in recent days in a blog published on Huffington Post.
He wrote: ‘I collaborated with consenting adult women who were fully aware of the nature of the work, and as is typical with any project, everyone signed releases.
‘I have never used an offer of work or a threat of rebuke to coerce someone into something that they did not want to do.
According to the Daily Telegraph, an email was circulated among staff of Condé Nast after an article in a Sunday newspaper questioned the photographer’s past.
The email, sent by the firm’s executive vice president James Woolhouse, said future articles with Mr Richardson should be ‘killed or substituted with other material’.
He wrote: ‘I am writing to you on an important matter. Condé Nast would like to no longer work with the photographer Terry Richardson.
