In a case of she-said, he-doesn’t-remember, a backup singer for Joss Stone says billionaire Richard Branson planted his face into her bosom.

In an October Facebook post , Antonia Jenae described how Sir Branson “kept trying to convince me to show him my boobs like this Indian [statue] he had at his pool on his island.”

As people were saying goodnight, she said, he proceeded to “motorboard my breasts … In front of my boss at the time, who was also a woman, in front of her dad, and the makeup artist and hairstylist. I was so shocked.”

Now even Fortune magazine is on the case.

The magazine for the rich, citing British reports, quoted a Virgin Management spokeswoman as saying “everyone appeared to enjoy their time on the island. Richard has no recollection of this matter and neither do his family and friends, who were with him on the island at the time.”

The Telegraph newspaper said the alleged incident would have taken place in June 2010 on Necker Island owned by Branson in the Caribbean.

“There would never have been any intention to offend or make anyone feel uncomfortable in any way and Richard apologizes if anyone felt that way during their time on the island,” the spokeswoman also said.

In a follow-up post Sunday, Jenae wrote: “Since that story came out, I have been accused of being a liar, a gold digger, a lying gold digger and said to use trying to use this to ‘get famous’ or save my failing music #/singing career.”

She asked: “Why the (blank) would anyone want to be famous for having an old man put his face in your breasts without your permission? How is that going to make me successful? I mean, I knew all of this was coming. I expected it. I am a strong person, so that won’t ever break me.”
