On his Instagram handle, Kloss said his experience of working for the video was one of the most “assaulting jobs” he had ever done
Pop star Katy Perry has been accused by model Josh Kloss, her Teenage Dream music video co-star, for allegedly making inappropriate contact with him at a social event.
The model made the accusations ahead of the 9th anniversary of the Teenage Dream album’s release.
On his Instagram handle, Kloss said his experience of working on the video was “one of the most confusing, assaulting, and belittling jobs I’ve ever done.”
“It was the birthday party of Johny Wujek’s at moonlight roller way. And when I saw her, we kissed and she was still my crush. But as I moved to introduce one of my friends, she pulled my sweats and underwear out as far as she could to show a couple of her guy friends and the crowd around us, my protector(penis). Can you imagine how embarrassed I felt?” the model wrote.
Kloss also recounted another incident on the set for a music video during which Perry called kissing him “gross”.
He claimed that the singer’s representatives prevented him from speaking about his time with her.
“I am willing to say this now because our culture is set on proving men of power are perverse.
The model played Perry’s love interest in the video for one for her most trended songs.
In another Instagram post, Kloss shared the screenshots of emails with Perry’s representatives, mentioning the way they controlled his media presence.
“The fear sticks within you when you are censored to protect someone else’s image. And this anniversary made you realize hey now is the time to let it out and let it go.
Perry or her representative has not yet commented on the allegations.
