Photographer Terry Richardson has had a collection of rumors and accusations follow him throughout his career.

The 48-year-old photographer stated that he never had sex with Lindsay Lohan, after his name appeared on Lindsay Lohan’s sex list, which leaked in March, according to the
“Somehow she said we spent a romantic night making love at the Chateau Marmont. Which never happened. Then, on the Internet, people are like, ‘He did this and that.’ But it’s totally untrue,” stated Richardson.
Although Richardson didn’t address all the sexual harassment accusations made against him, he did defend his controversial career, according to
“I don’t have any regrets about the work at all. Obviously I don’t ever want someone to feel like that. It was never my intention. But also, people do things, and then they have regrets, and that’s also nothing to do with me,” stated Richardson.
He added, “Then don’t do pictures like that again. . . I’m okay with myself about everything, and that to me is the most important thing.”
The photographer continued, “It was never just me and a girl ever. It was always assistants, or other people around, or girls brought friends over to hang out. It was very daytime, no drugs, no alcohol. It was a happening, there was energy, it was fun, it was exciting, making these strong images, and that’s what it was. People collaborating and exploring sexuality and taking pictures.”
Richardson addressed the recent allegation made by model Emma Appleton, who posted a screengrab of a private message on her Instagram that read, “If I can f-k you, I will book you in ny for a shoot for Vogue.”
Richardson reportedly stated that the account was fake.
“So corny. Ridiculous. Who talks like that? When people call me a pedophile and f-king bulls-t, that’s a horrible thing to say about someone,” stated Richardson.
