Terry Richardson Shoots Mariah Carey In Her Underwear For Wonderland Magazine Cover

Mariah Carey struck a pose for fashion photographer Terry Richardson amid rumours he offered British model Emma Appleton the opportunity to work on a Vogue shoot in return for sex.

"Excited to be on the cover of @Wonderlandmag, out this Friday in the UK and worldwide next week," Mariah tweeted, sharing a snap of her scantily clad cover.

While there's no doubt the 44-year-old superstar songstress looked smoking hot in her black lace underwear, complete with suspenders, a sheer black shrug and leather gloves, we can't help but shudder at the thought of the controversial photographer behind the lens.

Terry addressed allegations of previous sexual harassment in a blog for The Huffington Post in March. "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," he wrote.

"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.

"Believing such rumours at face value does a disservice not only to the spirit of artistic endeavour, but most importantly, to the real victims of exploitation and abuse."
