According to a report from The Telegraph, notorious 52-year-old photographer Terry Richardson has been banned from working with all of Condé Nast's global publications, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, and W.

Condé Nast International issued correspondence with staff members at all of its international titles that they would no longer be working with Richardson and any pending work by him should be "killed or substituted with other material", according to the Daily Telegraph.

The company's magazines include Vogue, GQ, Glamour and Vanity Fair.

A representative for Terry says that he is "disappointed" by the decision in a statement to The Daily Beast.

His spokeswoman told The Telegraph: "He is an artist who has been known for his sexually explicit work so many of his professional interactions with subjects were sexual and explicit in nature but all of the subjects of his work participated consensually".

Joel Embiid Angered By Minutes Restriction: It's 'F-king Bulls
On Monday, Brown said that Embiid would be limited to minutes "in the teens" at the start of the season. Over just 31 games, he averaged 25.4 minutes a game.


The email, reportedly sent by executive vice president and chief operating officer James Woolhouse, to "country presidents", announced the "important matter" that the group would no longer work with Mr Richardson. "Thank you for your support in this matter".

Allegations about his conduct over the years have resurfaced in the wake of sexual harassment and assault claims made about movie producer Harvey Weinstein. He denied the allegations and described himself as "considerate and respectful" of his photographic subjects. "Please could you confirm that this policy will be actioned in your market effective immediately".

After the controversy in 2014, Vogue said the mag had "no plans to work with him in the future".

Terry Richardson, who last month attended shows at New York's fashion week and was seen arm in arm with Edward Enninful, the new editor of British Vogue, at the Valentino resort collection in May, remains a friend of the designers Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs and the television presenter Martha Stewart. "I have never used an offer of work or a threat of rebuke to coerce someone into something that they did not want to do", he said. Speaking to NME, a Conde Nast spokesman confirmed that the content of the email has been correctly quoted. In 2013, Richardson directed Miley Cyrus' controversial "Wrecking Ball" video clip, where the singer appeared naked, swinging from a large, suspended steel ball.
