Let’s face it, Katy Perry is one problematic figure in the music industry.

Actor and model Josh Kloss are coming forward about the alleged sexual harassment he endured at the hands of Perry. Kloss appeared in the singer’s Teenage Dream music video back in 2010. He recently detailed his experience of being exposed by the singer during a birthday party of a mutual friend.

In an Instagram post, Kloss claims that they were at costume designer Johnny Wujek’s birthday party at a roller skating rink when the incident happened. The model revealed that he had a crush on Perry at the time and greeted her with a hug when they met at the party. “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.”

Kloss reveals feeling “pathetic and embarrassed” after what Perry did to him. He posted his revelation on the 9th anniversary of Teenage Dream. He also recounted his experience on the set of the track’s music video shoot and claims that Perry allegedly told the “entire set” that kissing Kloss was “gross”.

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

While there’s no hard evidence to back Kloss’ claims, lest we forget, Perry engaged in a non-consensual kiss with a teenager on American Idol just last year. So would we put this past her?
