Sex scandal : Terry Richardson, the photographer of stars, sidelined by magazines - Here

A Condé Nast source tells PEOPLE that the email was aimed at worldwide titles in the company, and Vogue U.S. has not worked with Richardson in about eight years.

In the aftermath of worldwide sexual abuse allegations including rape against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, the ban on Richardson has now extended to properties across Condé Nast International, the Daily Telegraph reported Monday.

The move to blacklist Richardson comes in the wake of Harvey Weinstein being fired from his own production company over allegations of sexual misconduct spanning decades. He denied the allegations and described himself as "considerate and respectful" of his photographic subjects.

A string of fashion magazines and brands have said they will no longer work with the photographer Terry Richardson, who has been the subject of allegations of inappropriate sexual behaviour at photoshoots for nearly two decades.

An email from executive vice president James Woolhouse read: "I am writing to you on an important matter". "Please could you confirm that this policy will be actioned in your market effective immediately". In 2014, model Emma Appleton confirmed to BuzzFeed News that tweets she had sent alleging that Richardson asked for sex in exchange for work were genuine.

The piece also showed Richardson arm-in-arm with British Vogue editor Edward Enninful at NY fashion week last month. (Vogue, at the time, said they had "no plans").

The Sun has approached Conde Nast for comment.

He wrote: "I collaborated with consenting adult women who were fully aware of the nature of the work, and as is typical with any project, everyone signed releases".

Despite years of allegations about his behaviour, he has photographed everyone from Barack Obama to Oprah Winfrey and Kate Moss, and has directed music videos such as Miley Cyrus's Wrecking Ball and Beyoncé's XO.
