The Gone Girl star makes the damning accusation in her new book “My Body,” due out next month, according to the Sunday Times of London.

Ratajkowski says she speaks out years later because she couldn’t process what had happened at the time.

At the time, the duo was alone on set and the model was naked from the waist down for the controversial video that launched both her and Thicke’s careers and was criticized for promoting the date rape culture.

At the time, Thicke was married to actress Paula Patton, with whom he shares an 11-year-old son, Julian Fuego Thicke.

The two split in 2014, with Patton citing in her divorce filing his alleged abuse towards her, as well as substance abuse and infidelity as reasons for their divorce. He now has three children with April Love Geary.

In 2018, Ratajkowski married Uncut Gems producer Sebastian Bear-McClard and gave birth to their first child in March.

Ratajkowski says the shoot — made with an all-female team, with the only men allowed to perform being the performers — was fun until Thicke seemed to get “a little drunk” and changed his behavior.

Then, “out of nowhere,” she says she felt someone’s hands on her breasts – turning around to realize who it was.

“Suddenly, out of nowhere, I felt the coolness and strangeness of a stranger’s hands enveloping my bare breasts from behind,” she said. “Instinctively I left and looked back at Robin Thicke.”

Ratajkowski claims the singer-songwriter “stumbled back” and smiled at her before the set director – who noticed what had happened – intervened.

“He smiled a crazy grin and stumbled back, his eyes hidden behind his sunglasses,” she writes.

“My head turned to the darkness behind the set. [Director Diane Martel’s] voice broke as she yelled at me, “Are you okay?”

In the book, Ratajkowski says she “felt the heat of humiliation run through her body” after the alleged caress and suddenly felt “naked for the first time that day.”

The supermodel said she was not speaking out at the time, saying she was “desperate to minimize” what happened.

“I pushed my chin forward and shrugged, avoiding eye contact as I felt the heat of humiliation pumping through my body,” she said. “I didn’t respond—not really, not the way I should have.”
