At the time, Upton did not clarify any details or mention if she was speaking from experience. In a recent interview with Time, she got to give the details.
According to Complex, Upton said that Marciano groped and kissed her at a meeting back in 2010, and he also, “grabbed my breasts and started feeling them, playing with them actually. After I pushed him away, he said, ‘I’m making sure they’re real.’”
Even during the photo-shoot, she stated, “He continued to touch me in a very dominating and aggressive way…..at one point he forcibly grabbed the back of my head so that I could not move and started kissing my face and neck.”
At the time, Kate Upton was only 18 years old and Marciano was 58.
Since then, Marciano told TMZ, “I am told that she has been working with others for some time to defame me and will claim that I groped her among other things….this accusation is false. I have never touched Kate Upton.”
