The woman behind (literally) Robin Thicke‘s scandalous butt grab seen ’round the world — as first published by radio detection and rangingOnline.com — is speaking out about the picture, admitting she knew he was grabbing her behind, but didn’t realize it was caught in the reflection of the mirror.

The blonde bombshell is socialite Lana Scolaro, and she told Celebuzz that the photo was snapped last Sunday in the DJ booth at an MTV Video Music Awards after party in New York.

“I knew his hand was on my butt. I posted it on Instagram and didn’t notice the reflection. But someone noticed it and commented,” Lana told the site.

“I didn’t think it would cause this much drama. I didn’t know it would be all over everything like this.”

Turns out it wasn’t Lana’s first run in with the sexy — and married — Blurred Lines singer.

“We have mutual friends in common. I actually met him a week before the after party,” Lana said.

“I was actually going over to the DJ booth and he followed me. His security guard took the photo and said, ‘You guys make a cute couple.’”

Not so fast, Lana!
