A photo of “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke grabbing a fan’s butt has gone viral, and the girl in the photo has spoken about the incident.
In the image, taken after the MTV Video Music Awards at a party Sunday night, Thicke is seen smiling with the mystery blonde. A mirror happens to be behind them, and Thicke’s hand can clearly be seen grabbing her backside.
The girl, Lana Scolaro, spoke with E! News on Friday, confirming that the photo was real and that she had even met Thicke a week before the VMAs. “I knew his hand was on my butt, but I didn't know that there was a mirror,” she told the site.
Scolaro, who said she just moved to New York, insists that the photo is real, stating, “I don't even know how to use Photoshop.”
One Twitter user tweeted the image directly to Paula Patton, Thicke’s wife. But a source for E! said that it’s a “non-issue” for them.

Meanwhile, Life & Style spoke with another woman, former Playboy model Amy Varela, who claims that Thicke was pursuing her in Florida.
“He said, ‘Hey, let’s go have some champagne,’” she told the magazine. She claims that he called her “gorgeous” and “He was grabbing my ass and waist a little bit.”
Thicke performed “Blurred Lines” at the VMAs with Miley Cyrus all over him during a medley.
