Photographer Terry Richardson is coming under fire after new allegations surfaced over the weekend that he had attempted to give a model a Vogue photoshoot in exchange for sex over Facebook messages.

The model, Emma J. Appleton, tweeted a screengrab of the offending message from her now defunct Twitter account with the caption “Um what” underneath it.

Richardson is notable for having photographed many celebrities and directing Miley Cyrus’ video for Wrecking Ball

About any future Vogue shoots? “We have no plans to work with him in the future,” says U.S. Vogue communications director Hildy Kuryk, although Richardson has shot for French Vogue as recently as February of this year.

Richardson’s people immediately contacted BuzzFeed to denounce the image as a “fake” in keeping with Richardson’s vague denials of other inappropriate behavior.


Appleton later deleted her Twitter account after assuring BuzzFeed that her account of the events was true.
