Emily gave a detailed account of the incident with Jonathan, which looked horrifying. Moreover, she said:
“Most of what came next was a blur except for the feeling. I don’t remember kissing, but I do remember his fingers suddenly being inside of me. Harder and harder and pushing and pushing like no one had touched me before or has touched me since. I could feel the shape of myself and my ridges, and it really, really hurt. I brought my hand instinctively to his wrist and pulled his fingers out of me with force. He stood up abruptly and scurried silently into the darkness up the stairs.”

“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.”
