Who is Josh Kloss, the Man Accusing Katy Perry of Sexual Assault?

Lately, Katy Perry has been in the news for her engagement to Orlando Bloom and her work on American Idol. But this week, Perry has been making headlines for a very different reason.

Yesterday, Josh Kloss, the model who appeared in her “Teenage Dream” music video, accused her of sexually assaulting him.

What happened between Perry and Kloss?

Kloss took to Instagram on the anniversary of the music video to tell his side of what happened.

“You know,” he wrote. “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.'”

After that instance, Kloss ran into Perry again and that’s when the assault happened.

“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,” he continued. “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 shared the incident in the hopes of proving that women can abuse their power just like men can.

“I just say this now because our culture is set on proving men of power are perverse,” he wrote. “But females with power are just as disgusting. 
So for all her good, she is an amazing leader, her 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.”

Who is Josh Kloss?

Kloss is a model who has worked with stars like Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner. He has a daughter, who he appears to be raising by himself, according to his Instagram posts.

Though he shares the same last name as model Karlie Kloss, the two are not related as Karlie does not have any brothers.

Kloss also claimed that he was not exposing Perry to get any money or anything out of her.

“Folks I am putting us both out on display to increase and enlighten everyone,” he wrote on Instagram. “I don’t want money for this. Many of you project your own ambitions. I don’t want fame from this, that is why I stomached it and kept working, and kept supporting the ‘Teenage Dream’ image. And this anniversary and time elapse made me realize hey now is the time to let it out and let it go. Not one more day of hearing ‘How was Katy Perry?'”
