Model in ‘Teenage Dream’ Accuses Katy Perry of Sexual Misconduct
A model who appeared in Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream’ music video has accused her of allegedly making inappropriate and non-consensual contact with him at a social event. The model made the accusations ahead of the ninth anniversary of the Teenage Dream album’s release.
The model took to Instagram to write about the harrowing experience. He said that working on the video was “one of the most confusing, assaulting, and belittling jobs I've ever done.”
Recalling a particular incident, the model wrote, “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?”
He also recounted another incident on the sets of the music video, wherein Katy allegedly called kissing him “gross”. He claimed that the singer's representatives prevented him from speaking about his time with the her.
In another post, he shared the screenshots of emails with Perry’s representatives, highlighting the way they controlled his media presence.

“The fear sticks with you, when you are censored to protect someone else's image. And this anniversary, and time elapse made me realise hey now is the time to let it out and let it go. Not one more day of hearing How was Katy Perry?”. Neither Perry nor her representative have commented on the allegations.
