Emily Ratajkowski bundles up in a red jacket for lunch in New York with her son… after revealing Robin Thicke groping accusations in new book
Emily Ratajkowski stayed warm wearing a bright red puffer coat as she headed out to lunch with her son Sylvester on Thursday afternoon in Manhattan.
The 30-year-old model chatted away on her cellphone as she pushed a collapsible Doona car seat stroller through city streets in New York.
Just last month, Emily claimed R&B star Robin Thicke, now 44, sexually assaulted her on the set of the Blurred Lines music video she starred in eight years ago in damning allegation in her new book ‘My Body.’

Emily wore a bright pink sweatshirt underneath her winter coat, which she paired with black leggings and grey New Balance trainers.
She sported a pair of rectangular sunglasses, and wore her dark brown hair naturally straight and parted down the middle.
Ratajkowski spoke out years later as she didn’t let herself come to terms with what had happened at the time.
At the time, the duo were standing alone on the set and the model was naked from the waist up for the controversial video which catapulted both her and Thicke’s careers and was criticized for promoting date rape culture.

Thicke was married to actress Paula Patton at the time, with whom he shares an 11-year-old son, Julian Fuego Thicke.
The two separated in 2014, and Patton cited in her divorce filing his alleged abuse toward her, as well as drug abuse and infidelity as reasons for their separation. He now has three children with April Love Geary.
In 2018, Ratajkowski married the Uncut Gems producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, and she gave birth to their first child in March.
Ratajkowski says the shoot – shot with an all-female team where the only men allowed were the performers – was fun until Thicke appeared to get ‘a little drunk’ and his behavior changed.
Ratajkowski accused Robin Thicke of groping her bare breasts while they were filming the music video for his 2013 hit Blurred Lines (seen above)
Then, ‘out of nowhere’ she says she felt someone’s hands on her breasts – turning to realize who it was.
‘Suddenly, out of nowhere, I felt the coolness and foreignness of a stranger’s hands cupping my bare breasts from behind,’ she said. ‘I instinctively moved away, looking back at Robin Thicke.’
Ratajkowski claims the singer-songwriter ‘stumbled backward’ and smiled at her, before the set director – who noticed what had happened – stepped in.
‘He smiled a goofy grin and stumbled backward, his eyes concealed behind his sunglasses,’ she writes.
The supermodel, now 30, claims the R&B star, now 44, had been drinking when he sexually assaulted her on set (pictured together in the music video)
‘My head turned to the darkness beyond the set. [Director Diane Martel’s] voice cracked as she yelled out to me, ‘Are you okay?”
In the book, Ratajkowski says she felt ‘the heat of humiliation pump through’ her body after the alleged fondling and suddenly ‘felt naked for the first time that day.’
The supermodel said she didn’t speak out in the moment saying she felt ‘desperate to minimize’ what happened.
‘I pushed my chin forward and shrugged, avoiding eye contact, feeling the heat of humiliation pump through my body,’ she said. ‘I didn’t react – not really, not like I should have.’
