Waters was just a 19-year-old Art student when she decided to pose nude to earn some extra money. She takes full responsibility of her actions and says she could have avoided the entire incident if she had the will power to but whatever happened to her was so blinding and numbing that she lost her sense to react to it.
Waters has posted about her horrifying experience on various Web sites but has got great response from celebrity blogger Perez Hilton's Web site. "I want to not only warn against making the same mistake I did but possibly open up the dialogue about how/and why this sort of thing can happen so easily," Charlotte writes.
"The true purpose of me sharing this is I want people to know what is possible in these situations and that you as a human being are 100% allowed to say no to something you are uncomfortable with and I wish I had the strength to then," added the model.
The details are too sexual and graphic to be posted here and can be read on Perez's page here.
"The only way I can describe how I felt was nervous and paralyzed," the model wrote about her feelings.
It is not the first time that Richardson has been caught in sexual exploitation case involving young unknown models. One can Google his name and find several previous articles about all the controversies he has ever been involved in. Take a look at the Guardian article dated 2010 here.
Richardson is famous for capturing A-List Hollywood celebrities with his camera and enjoys great reputation among the elite class for his nudist portraits. His recent pictures with Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Madonna and even Miranda Kerr have been equally provocative and popular too.
The 40 something celebrity photographer has even shot the "Wrecking Ball" music video for Miley where she broke all previous records and the latest celebrity to get behind his lens is Oscar winning actress from the movie "12 Years a Slave" - Lupita Nyong'o.
Do you think the photographer is really involved in sexual exploitation of his models or is it some kind of controversy to malign his hugely successful career? Or is Terry too intelligent to try anything controversial with famous celebrities and hence doesn't get caught? Does he purposely try his alleged sexual advances with unknown young models that are too weak to raise their voice against him? What are your views?
