A model in Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” music video alleges she exposed his penis to a group of people at a party of people, which he says amounts to sexual assault.
On Instagram, actor-model Josh Kloss, described his interaction with Perry: “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?”
Kloss also detailed his working history with Perry, recounting another experience on set for a music video during which Perry allegedly called kissing him “gross.” Following the music video, Kloss claims that Perry’s reps prevented him from speaking about his time with the singer.
“I just say this now because our culture is set on proving men of power are perverse,” Kloss wrote. “But females with power are just as disgusting.”
Perry’s “Thinking of You” co-star Anderson Davis is now speaking out in her defense.
“I’d be 100% happy to defend Katy. After being contacted regarding my thoughts on this from numerous entertainment outlets, I’ve decided to give my own words here so that they couldn’t be twisted!” he wrote.
“I read an article regarding the male model’s thoughts and what he had claimed Katy Perry had done to him. What I can tell you is my personal experience and it was nothing but positive. Katy was extremely inspiring, sweet, darling, professional on set and off the few times that we ran into each other. I personally didn’t have anyone on Katy’s team lording over me to answer interview questions in any certain way,” he went on to say.
“We made a beautiful music video , I worked with some very talented but more importantly great people, and made some friends that I’ve enjoyed drinks and dinner with over the years. Simply put…it sounds like a smear job to me. Maybe it’s always been this way, but moreso today, everyone seems so needy for attention no matter how they can get it, even at the cost of someone else’s reputation. We have a responsibility as a society as individuals not to be careless with our accusations or words.”
