If it only happened once, maybe embattled fashion photographer Terry Richardson might get the benefit of the doubt – but model Emma Appleton’s claims that the quirky shutterbug sexually harassed her are just one in a long line of sexual abuse accusations that surround the famed photog.

Appleton posted a screen shot of her phone to Twitter and Instagram Sunday, displaying a Facebook private message from who she suggests was the famous lens man propositioning her for sex in exchange for shooting her for a high fashion spread in New York.

“If I can f–k you I will book you in (New York) for a shoot for Vogue,” the message read.

Appleton posted the photo with the caption “Um what?”

After flat out denying it was him at all, Richardson, who has been accused by a slew of models for inappropriate behavior, relied on his flaks to fight this battle, as they questioned the validity of the British model’s posts.

Richardson’s rep Candice Marks went into damage control telling Buzzfeed, “This is obviously a fake, Terry did not send this text.”

“This industry is f–ked up” Appleton wrote in response to the backlash she received from Richardson’s supporters online. “I’ve been modelling for 5 years and I’ve never had this before, it doesn’t make it okay.”

Appleton then seemed to regret sharing the alleged Richardson advances, writing,  “Beginning to wish I hadn’t posted that,” she tweeted. “It doesn’t matter who you are or what the industry is, just be a decent human being… The fact people think this is acceptable blows my f–king mind.”

But not everyone bought into Richardson’s denial and his cronies’ doubts about Appleton. Vogue magazine issued a statement after the posts went public, saying they have “no plans” to work with Richardson in the future.

“The last assignment Terry Richardson had for US Vogue appeared in the July 2010 issue and we have no plans to work with him in the future,” the statement, obtained by the Daily News’ Confidenti@l, read.

Emma Appleton now makes it five models who have accused Richardson of inappropriate conduct. Jamie Peck along with Rie Rasmussen, Charlotte Waters and Jenna Sauers have all gone on record, saying that Richardson sexually harassed them in what was supposed to be a professional environment.

Even though Richardson has denied all claims, looking at the images below makes you wonder if all of these women can be lying.
