Katy Perry has been accused of exposing the genitals of the male model who featured in her ‘Teenage Dream’ music video.
Josh Kloss played her love interest in the 2010 video, and he has now claimed that the singer pulled down his trousers and underwear to expose him at a party.
The model took to Instagram to make the allegations on Sunday, which he said was the anniversary of the day he started working on the music video.
Kloss wrote on his Instagram: “This one time I brought a friend who was dying to meet her. It was [costume designer] Johnny 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?” he added.
Yahoo has reached out to Katy Perry’s representatives for comment.
The alleged incident took place after the music video had been filmed and after she had split from ex-husband Russell Brand in 2012.
Kloss went on to say that he was revealing this to world now because “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. Yay. I was actually gonna play the song and sing it on ukulele for the anniversary, but then as I was turning I thought, f**k this, I’m not helping her bs image another second.”
On why he waited so long to come forward with the accusations, Kloss said he didn’t want people to think he was doing it for a financial gain.
“To admit that someone violated you in such a f**ked up way, and you didn’t call the cops at that moment was hard to swallow, and it took a lot of time,” he said. “There have been a million times I could have brought it up, but those times would have benefited me financially.
“At this time there is absolutely no benefit for me, but benefit for many others, who can contemplate power, would they do what she did to me, or would they stay respectful of me and my body.”
