#HimToo? Katy Perry’s music video co-star accuses her of sexual assault at party

A male model has accused pop star celebrity Katy Perry of pulling down his pants and exposing him in front of a group of people at a party without his consent.

Josh Kloss, who played a “love interest” in Perry’s “Teenage Dream” music video, claimed that the former Christian music singer pulled down his pants and exposed his genitals to her friends at costume designer Johnny Wujek’s birthday party.

“This one time I brought a friend who was dying to meet her,” he said. “It was 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.”

The act reportedly took place after Perry has split from ex-husband Russell Brand.

“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,” Kloss wrote on Instagram over the weekend. “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.”

Kloss told the Daily Mail that he waited a long time to speak out due to trauma and embarrassment, and did not come out on the matter for financial gain or fame.

“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. So you believing me is inconsequential to me, it’s more about letting people believe that even a guy like me has felt powerless and been violated, and still courageous to bring it up when it counts, not when it’s lucrative.”

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.
