Josh Kloss accuses Katy Perry of ****** harassment

A model who starred alongside Katy Perry in her 2010
music video for ‘Teenage Dream’ has accused the pop star of
****** harassment.

Josh Kloss, 38, made the allegation in a series of Instagram
posts that he began sharing yesterday (August 11). He alleged that
Perry – who was a crush of his at the time – once yanked at his
underwear without his permission at a party, in turn revealing his
genitals to people stood near him.

You know.
After I met Katy, we sang a worship song, “open the eyes of my
heart” She was cool and kind. When other people were around she
was cold as ice even called the act of kissing me “gross” to
the entire set while filming. Now I was pretty embarrassed but kept
giving my all, as my ex was busy cheating on me and my daughter was
just a toddler, I knew I had to endure for her sake. After the
first day of shooting, Katy invited me to a strip club in Santa
Barbara. I declined and told her “I have to go back to hotel and
rest, because this job is all I have right now” So I saw Katy a
couple times after her break up with Russel. This one time I
brought a friend who was dying to meet her. It was Johny Wujek’s
birthday party at moonlight roller way. And when I saw her, we
hugged and she was still my crush. 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. Can you imagine how pathetic and embarrassed i felt? 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.
So for all her good she is an amazing leader, hers songs are mainly
great empowering anthems. And that is it. 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. 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. So, happy anniversary to one of the most confusing, assaulting,
and belittling jobs I’ve ever done. Yay #teenagedream I was
actually gonna play the song and sing it on ukele for the
anniversary, but then as I was tuning I thought, fuck this, I’m
not helping her bs image another second.

The model claims Perry’s representatives “lorded” over
him about “not discussing a single thing about anything regarding
Katy publicly”. He said he agreed to remaining quiet because he
needed the money from the ‘Teenage Dream’ video shoot.

Referencing the fact that the video will see its ninth
anniversary next month, Kloss added: “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.”

“So, happy anniversary to one of the most confusing,
assaulting, and belittling jobs I’ve ever done.”

There has been no official response to Kloss’ accusations from
Perry or her representatives at the time of writing. NME has
reached out for comment.

In other news,
Perry has said that she’s not ruling out a collaboration
with Taylor Swift now that the longstanding feud between the two
popstars has been resolved
.
