The alleged events of the night came flooding back to Emily years later when Leder published the photos in a book without her permission.
In a statement to Page Six, Leder’s publicist has denied Emily‘s claims, writing: “We are all deeply disturbed to read Ms. Ratajkowski’s latest (false) statements… in her never-ending search for press and publicity. Of course Mr. Leder totally denies her outrageous allegations of being ‘assaulted.’ It is grotesque and sad that she is so vindictive to lie in such a way to the press routinely.
“She knows she has no legal recourse to stop publication, so bad mouthing the photographer (again) with salacious accusations seems to be her newfound answer. It is a shame, because the photos are really powerful and they are beloved by so many of her fans.”
