The actor who co-starred with Katy Perry in her "Teenage Dream" video has accused her of sexual harassment. Over the weekend, Josh Kloss took to Instagram and alleged that at a birthday party, as he went to introduce a friend to Perry, "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 accused Perry of being "cold as ice" when people were around (and said she "even called the act of kissing me 'gross' to the entire set") and claimed the pop star invited him to a strip club during filming. "I just say this now because our culture is set on proving men of power are perverse," he added. "But females with power are just as disgusting." He concluded the post by saying, "Happy anniversary to one of the most confusing, assaulting and belittling jobs I’ve ever done."
