Terry Richardson - Terry Richardson Opens Up About Sexual Harassment Allegations

Celebrity photographer Terry Richardson is continuing to blast allegations he acts inappropriately with his models, insisting he has absolutely "no regrets" about his controversial career.

The snapper, who has worked with the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus, among others, has faced a backlash in recent years after a number of his subjects, including models Jamie Peck and Charlotte Wheeler, accused him of sexual misconduct.

Richardson, who is known for his sexually-charged and often risque photoshoots, recently spoke out to deny the reports, insisting they were part of an "emotionally-charged witch hunt", and now he has opened up further about the scandals which have overshadowed his successful career.

In a candid new interview with New York magazine, he maintains he never pressured models to do anything they weren't comfortable with, stating, "I don't have any regrets about the work at all.

"Obviously I don't ever want someone to feel like that (forced into doing something). It was never my intention. But also, people do things, and then they have regrets, and that's also nothing to do with me. Then don't do pictures like that again... I'm Ok with myself about everything, and that to me is the most important thing."

Richardson also addressed another sex scandal which surfaced in April (14) after model Emma Appleton shared a screenshot of a message she allegedly received from the fashion photographer, who reportedly propositioned her, writing: "If I can f**k you I will book you in ny (New York) for a shoot for Vogue."

A representative for the snapper previously declared the message "obviously a fake", and now Richardson has admitted the false accusations, which he has never been arrested or charged over, affect him more than he lets on.

He says of the alleged text, "So corny. Ridiculous. Who talks like that? When people call me a paedophile and f**king bulls**t, that's a horrible thing to say about someone."
