Terry Richardson impregnated his long-time assistant, Alexandra Bolotow

Terry Richardson

Terry Richardson has a long-time assistant, Alexandra Bolotow, who is a former model for him. Terry and Alexandra have worked together for ten years, so she’s seen a lot of stuff go down, and she has defended him against accusations. Alexandra spoke out when Charlotte Waters told her story last year about what she experienced in Terry’s studio.

Charlotte detailed her 2009 encounter with Terry, who did some unspeakable things to her while recording the entire incident. Alexandra was not the assistant from that encounter. That woman, Leslie Leslin, was there the whole time and even took pictures while Terry did his gross thing. Afterwards, Charlotte was so disturbed she couldn’t even speak. Leslie hailed a cab and gave Charlotte a pep talk about how she was such a “cool” and “strong” girl who can handle that stuff. She was obviously trying to talk Charlotte out of reporting anything, and it sounded like a pattern between perv and assistant. Terry’s assistants enable his gross behavior. I’m not saying Alexandra does the same thing, but she has no problem defending Terry.

Terry later dismissed all accusations as a “a witch hunt,” said he had a clear conscience without regrets. The Terry news has slowed, probably because he knows people are watching him now. Well, Alexandra and Terry started dating over the past few years. She previously posed for Terry before working for him. She sat in a trash can, and he wrote the word “slut” on her body. Now they are pregnant together:

Controversial photographer Terry Richardson is moving into a new chapter at 50 – fatherhood.

Multiple sources tell Page Six that Richardson’s former assistant-turned-girlfriend Alexandra Bolotow is pregnant and that the couple’s been discreetly telling friends.

A source further told us that Bolotow’s three or four months along.

We’re told 30-something Bolotow has known Richardson for 10 years, and she appeared in 90 explicit photos by the fashion photographer in his 2005 book, Kibosh. She reportedly met him when she was still an NYU student, then became an intern for Richardson before working for him full time and later studying anthropology at Columbia.

Bolotow was also one person who rushed to Richardson’s defense last year during a media firestorm when he was accused of sexual misconduct by a number of models, though none of them ever brought charges against him.

“I think part of being a strong woman is owning the decisions that you’ve made in your life,” Bolotow said in a 2014 New York magazine cover story on Richardson and the controversy. “Trying to put the onus onto someone else for your own decisions is really cowardly and kind of dishonest.”

[From Page Six]

Are you shuddering too? Alexandra had always defended Terry’s behavior, and she let him debase her in his photography like so many other models. She later worked for him and fully embraced his style. Now they’re having a baby together. I can’t even put into words how wrong this is. Someone like Terry Richardson should be sterile.

    A cold shudder up and down my spine.

    If you where to look up dirtbag in the dictionary, his photo would show him give a double thumbs up.

    Ehw…..and what is she wearing?

      The “I Gave Up on the Whole Self-Respect Thing a Long Time Ago” ensemble. Wretched, wretched people.

  4. lkaye says:

    I hope he has a daughter

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      If you are implying “That will teach him to care what happens when the girl is his” sadly I don’t think it will make a difference and only the child will suffer having a father figure who is a rapist and abuser of vulnerable women.

    • Neah23 says:

      Why? He drugs and sexually assaults young woman and you hope he has a daughter?

    • jinni says:

      Why? Having a daughter isn’t going to make him start respecting women. Even if he is protective of his own daughter, it doesn’t mean he’ll start treating other peoples daughters decently. If you mean him to have a daughter in order to know what it feels like for guys to treat her like he’s treated other women that’s cruel. Why would you want a innocent person that has no control over who their father is to pay for his sins? Plus, assuming that’s what you mean, what makes you think he’ll care if other men mistreat her in a similar fashion? He’ll probably groom her into thinking that kind of behavior is normal.

      I just read that he’s having twins and they used science to get pregnant since they apparently had a couple of losses. Why any doctor would want to to help that pervert have kids is beyond me. But than someone actually allowed Woody Allen to adopt two girls who look suspiciously like the two daughters he had/ has inappropriate relationship with so I guess anything is possible with enough money.

      I’m sure those two innocents will soon be used in all kinds of perverse photographs all in the name of “art”.

      • Neah23 says:

        This reminds my of the dude from Girls Gone Wild who sexually and physically abused women. Like Terry also had child using science and he and his wife genetically selected to have girls. He reason was he was trying to prove something to the public by having daughters.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      I’ve known pervs with daughters. Having girls of their own does not change their way of thinking. He probably won’t perv on his own daughter, but she will grow up under his tutelage that women are merely sexual objects to be exploited by men – nothing more.

      The stepfather that molested me had three daughters of his own. He didn’t molest any of them, but every single one of them have been involved in the sex industry in some form or other. It’s all they think they’re good for.

    • mytbean says:

      He will… for some reason that seems to be how it works. Guys who womanize have daughters.

    • sensible says:

      Actually i hope they have a boy, he will completely eff up a little girl. A boy too, but more survivable.

  5. Kitty28 says:

    I can’t with this guy. The stuff that is circulating is disturbing.

  6. neer says:

    He is incidentally very good friends with the couple- Aniston & Theroux (who are very close to Chelsea Handler too). He’s their wedding photographer as well.

    • ann says:

      The underage girls gone wild were encouraged to drink and strip. The guy who does that is a friend also. Yucky bunch of friends. It wouldn’t surprise me if Terry was a Cosby defender. Chelsea’s a joke too IMO.

      • Neah23 says:

        Wait what I just mentioned the dude from “Girls go Wild” in my above comment, about they seem to have went the same route getting kids. I never knew they were friends that just makes me even more sick. I gather now that Terry genetically selected his kids to be girls also just like the dude from “Girls go Wild”

      • JenniferJustice says:

        That Joe guy really did that? Had his wife’s eggs genetically gendered? Wow! I can’t believe they did that. I can’t beleive his wife was supportive or wanted that too? I’d like to hear her justification. A right is a right, but I’m curious about her preference.

      • ann says:

        Justin saw red when Jennifer, 42, ran into controversial Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis, 38, in New York.

        Jen‘s been friends with Joe for more than a decade after being introduced by her Friends co-star Matthew Perry,’ says our source.

        She’s even stayed at his villa in Mexico several times.
        From Now magazine a couple of years ago.

        ‘But Justin didn’t realise they knew each other and he didn’t like it when he found out.

        ‘Now he wants to know if she’s mixed up with any other unsavoury characters.’

        Joe‘s been embroiled in several scandals in the past and was even convicted of child abuse and prostitution charges in March 2008.

      • Neah23 says:

        @ JenniferJustice

        Here the link were Joe talk about it, get you sick bag ready before reading it because this SOB talks about how he wanted to have girls to show his “love” and “respect” for women. *vomits*


        @ Ann
        I believe he and Terry are friends, but that articles you posted sound like BS because Terry and Justin have been friends for years before Jen so I can’t see him side eyeing Jen if she was to be friends with Joe.

      • ann says:

        I agree Neah. I can’t see Justin really caring. It’s a mostly bs article, but I do know some couples and the guy can hang out with whoever and if the woman hangs out with a party girl or a single woman with a great sex life, they can’t see past the end of their noses and they don’t like it. Funny huh? Don’t think it applies with Jen and Justin though.

  7. BooBooLaRue says:

    Ewwww, this is so repulsive – god I hope he doesn’t father a daughter. As for photographer? He’s talentless.

  8. GingerCrunch says:

    My heart is broken for this poor unborn innocent. Just look at those two.

  9. islandwalker says:

    Silkwood shower time. Repulsive.

  10. Neah23 says:

    Correct my if I’m wrong, but isn’t this the assistant who helps Uncle Terry drug his victims.

    Is so then I truly think I’m going to be sick, nothing like sexual predator and his partner crime/defender having a child together.

  11. boredblond says:

    First impression of pic…yikes..and poor dog looks miserable.

  12. Maya says:

    Disgusting man and anyone who defends him or are friends with him are equally vile.

  13. suzanne says:

    Please hold my hair while I puke…

  14. Tarsha says:

    “She sat in a trash can, and he wrote the word “slut” on her body.”
    Wow, how can anyone defend that? That Aniston is not only friends with Chelsea Handler, but this pervert-bordering-on-pedophile says everything anyone ever needs to know about her.

    You are what you hang with.

  15. Willa says:

    On his instagram he says he’s having twins.

  16. Chelly says:

    She reminds me of Amy Winehouse in that pic, sans the beehive. But, on to the story…I agree w previous posters, this is disturbing & I wouldnt want him breeding

  17. SloaneY says:

    Yuck. So much yuck. Is this like Stockholm Syndrome? This poor child.

    • Jayna says:

      More like two birds of a feather. She’s worked with him for 11 years. She’s just a pervert like he is.

  18. siri says:

    I just red the whole Charlotte Waters story for the first time. I can’t believe this man is still walking free. And Aniston-Theroux are friends with him??

  19. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    That disgusting woman, who allowed TR to debase her, and tells the women he assaulted to “own their own choices,” is having a baby. I just don’t even have any words, except how sad I am for those unborn twins.

    • Pinetree13 says:

      It’s so wrong and upsetting. He can’t possibly become a good parent…he lacks basic empathy. This news sickens me.

  20. I Choose Me says:

    I’m sorry I clicked. I can’t and I won’t with this POS today.

    • Charlotte15 says:

      Same here. If indeed a doctor assisted them with this pregnancy, I hope s/he is reported to the medical ethics board because this person doesn’t have the judgment to be practicing reproductive medicine and should be stripped of a medical license.

  21. CidySmiley says:

    I just threw up a little in my mouth. Oh my god, that poor child… isn’t he like 50!? Poor, poor child.

  22. nicegirl says:

    This is so disturbing.

  23. Nicolette says:

    Disgusting skin crawling slime bag.

  24. Tacos and TV says:

    Why do I suddenly need a shower and a lobotomy?

    *Rubs temples and takes a deep breath*. No. Just f**king No!!! No no no no no.

  25. Ferris says:

    I just read the story about the model being assaulted: two questions, why can’t the model press charges for sexual assaulted, how does the consent forms allow sexual acts to happen? Does it say, Terry is allowed to perform sexually acts and since she signed it and knew beforehand no criminal charges can be filed?

    • Neah23 says:

      It’s basically the Cosby situation happening here.

    • Sam says:

      It would be really hard for the models to prove that Terry crossed the line. Plenty of photographers dabble in nude photography, and most of them are consummate professionals who know exactly how to do the job without making a model feel uncomfortable. But anytime a woman voluntarily takes her clothes off for a photographer, the law gets harder to enforce. Terry could always simply claim that the model misunderstood a direction he gave or an innocent gesture. In addition, there are usually forms that state that the model acknowledges that nudity might happen, etc. It would just be really, really hard to make the case. Even IF she had gone to the cops and reported him immediately, the odds of her ever seeing some kind of justice would be slim, because the case would be “gray” and would largely be her word against his, and prosecutors hate those odds. So sadly, I doubt there’s any way to get him criminally charged.

      • Neah23 says:

        Also he drugs them by putting stuff in their tea which takes away their reasonable thinking. Many of his victims have said when they start question thing and say they are not ok with what’s going on Terry assistant (his now baby mama) “reassure” them that everything ok and make them start doubting themselves.

        He a pro there a reason why his assistant is always there when dealing with these young woman. She is there to give him an witness that nothing “inappropriate” happened and to debunk these women claims.

  26. Kitten says:

    These people are so trashy in both behavior and appearance. Just goes to show you that wealth has nothing to do with integrity or even class.

  27. claire says:

    He’s a sh*t photographer and a sh*t human being. It’s really scary to think of him becoming a father as well.

  28. Greata says:

    “Someone like Terry Richardson should be sterile.”….A million times YES!

  29. Dani says:

    I pray he doesn’t have a daughter. The pain that girl would have to go through with a scum bag like him for a father. Ugh.

  30. KellyBee says:

    He’s a disgusting piece of s**t and I feel sorry for any child boy or girl he’s going to have because no child deserves having that as a father and her as a mother.

    I see a Bill Cosby situation happening in his future. I can see it now his supporters and friends will say some BS about how shocked and disgusted they are.

  31. Sarah01 says:

    Gross totally gross, I feel so sorry for this unborn child.
    So sad so sad.

  32. Alex says:

    The fact that he is procreating is scary af

  33. Dita says:

    My stomach just turned.

  34. antipodean says:

    Whether he has a daughter or a son will not matter one iota to this depraved excuse for a man. The child’s mother will not protect it, she is a victim herself, and has obviously drunk the kool aid. It is interesting to note, that in her autobiography Angelica Huston wrote that she had an affair with Terry’s father when she was very young. Patrick Richardson was a photographer himself, and also had the reputation of preying on young people sexually, although I think it was explained then as part of his being an “artist”, and tolerated by those who should have known better. Terry was just a child, and she spent quite a lot of time around him. Maybe that goes some way to explaining how this creature was formed, and why he is the way he is. Not by way of an excuse by any means, but the seeds for this sort of dysfunction are often sown deep in the past. I really admire Angelica, she is a fabulous actress, and her book is quite revelatory, but she was damaged quite badly by some of the same people, albeit a generation ago, who are around in Hollywood and perpetuate this repugnant behaviour, even today.

    • jinni says:

      If this chick is the same assistant that has helped him coerce women into uncomfortable situations and helped him practice his predatory ways then she is not a victim. The minute she became an accomplice all sympathy for her is thrown out the door, so I can’t feel sad for her if she is the one or one of the assistants that have helped him harm others.

  35. Joni says:


  36. Camille says:

    Yuck, he makes my skin crawl.

  37. Dana says:

    Is it wrong that when I think of them, I think, “Definitely do drugs”?

  38. ann says:

    Now Auntie Jen, Uncle Justin and Aunt Chelsea and the rest of their “arty” friends can throw a baby shower for Uncle Terry.

  39. JRenee says:

    How he continues to work is just beyond me. My sympathy is with the kids and what they will be exposed to.

  40. lesbastardsmiserables says:

    Why do I get the feeling that the only reason this guy would be happy to become a father is because of the opportunities it will give him to prey upon their underage friends.

  41. Ill let myself out

  42. neer says:

    I think Aniston & Theroux will have second thoughts in having their wedding pics which were taken & photoshopped exclusively by their favorite p*rvert photographer & close friend Terry Richardson be published anytime soon even if they want it badly & desperately to “coincide” with AJBP news & appearances. They would perhaps hesitate due to the fact that the controversial photographer is now in the news himself about impregnating his assistant who was his former model as well. And because he is in the news, naturally the news of his previous very abnormal sexual acts & his extreme gross style of photography would also surface. Hence, Aniston & Theroux would definitely do not want to have anything to do with him for now. Imagine, if their wedding pics would be shown to the world & the infamous photographer would also be mentioned…. They don’t want that to happen. They would probably wait until the controversy surrounding the photographer subsides.

  43. Trashaddict says:

    Just Ew. Just No. Some things should not procreate.
