A male model has accused Katy Perry of sexual assault.
Singer, Katy Perry accused of exposing model Josh Kloss’ penis at party
Josh Kloss, who appeared as the love interest in Perry’s 2010 “Teenage Dream” music video, claims that the singer exposed his penis to a crowd of people at a party.
“It was Johny Wujek’s birthday party at moonlight roller way. And when I saw [Perry], we hugged and she was still my crush,” Kloss, 34, wrote on Instagram on Sunday. “But as I turned to introduce my friend, she pulled my Adidas sweats and underwear out as far as she could to show a couple of her guy friends and the crowd around us, my penis.”
He added, “Can you imagine how pathetic and embarrassed i felt?”
The model said that he felt compelled to come forward on the anniversary of the video’s release because he feels movements like #MeToo only focus on female victims.
“I just say this now because our culture is set on proving men of power are perverse. But females with power are just as disgusting,” he wrote. “So for all her good she is an amazing leader, her songs are mainly great empowering anthems. And that is it.”
He added that even though clips of the music video he starred in are constantly used by the star, Kloss was only paid $650.
“I continued to watch her use clips of her music videos for her world tour and then her dvd, only highlighting one of her male co-stars, and it was me,” he said. “I made around 650 in total off of teenage dream. I was lorded over by her reps, about not discussing a single thing about anything regarding Katy publicly. And a couple interviews they edited and answered for me.”
He added that it was “one of the most confusing, assaulting, and belittling jobs I’ve ever done.”
The “Dark Horse” crooner been accused of inappropriate behavior in the past.
Last year, Perry made an “American Idol” contestant “uncomfortable” when she gave him his first-ever kiss without his consent.
She was also said to have grabbed Shawn Mendes’ behind on a red carpet without his permission, though the “Señorita” singer later took back the groping allegation.
