Kate Upton Said Terry Richardson Released The "Cat Daddy" Video Without Her Consent

Upton told Vogue that she believed the video wouldn't be seen by the public.

The video, which shows Upton dancing to the song "Cat Daddy" in a bikini, became a viral hit in 2012 and received millions of views. But Upton was led to believe that the video was a "behind-the-scenes" cut that would not be released to the public.


This isn't the first time Richardson has been accused of similar allegations. Over the last five years, there have been a string of reports against Richardson alleging inappropriate behaviour and sexual misconduct during photo shoots.

Despite the allegations made against Richardson, numerous magazines and newspapers such as Rolling Stone and the New York Times continue to work with the photographer.

hey @nytimes, fixed that Terry Richardson piece for you
