Katy Perry has bit hit with a second claim of sexual harassment, according to Page Six.
The “Last Friday Night” singer is already facing criticism after a previous colleague alleged that the pop star sexually assaulted him while they were filming the music video for “Teenage Dream.”
The newest allegation comes from Tina Kandelaki, a television presenter and producer in the country of Georgia. She claimed that Perry touched her inappropriately and attempted to kiss her multiple times while heavily intoxicated at a party. Despite Kandelaki’s rejections, Perry remained persistent throughout the evening.
“Once I was invited to a private party with Katy Perry, where she — being pretty tipsy — chose me as an object for the manifestation of her passion,” she said in her description of the event.
“I managed to fight back… and Katy instantly found a new victim for kisses, hugs and dirty dances,” Kandelaki concluded about the incident.
Perry has not yet made any comment on the matter.
The Georgian star said she was inspired to come forward after the first allegation against Perry. Earlier this week, Josh Kloss made claims regarding alleged sexual harassment he received while on the set of “Teenage Dream.” Perry was said to have asked Kloss to join her on a jaunt to a strip club, an invitation for which he said he declined.
However, the most damaging claim was that Perry exposed him without his consent, as Kloss claimed on an Instagram post.
“It was Johny Wujek’s birthday party at moonlight roller way. And when I saw [Perry], we hugged and she was still my crush.”
“As I turned to introduce my friend, [Perry] 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,” Kloss finished.
Though the “Dark Horse” singer had not addressed that controversy, either, her friends have rallied to defend her, as reported by The Inquisitr. Her inner circle, including Wujek and jewelry designer Markus Molinari, claimed that Kloss was enamored and even obsessed with the singer.
However, others have pointed out this is not the first time that Perry has been called out over her lack of certain boundaries.
During the first season of the American Idol reboot, Perry kissed 19-year-old contestant Benjamin Glaze without his consent, according to Queery.
The exchange happened after he was asked if he had ever been kissed. Glaze replied that he had not, and was saving the event a for his first “real relationship.”
Nonetheless, Perry called Glaze over and kissed him.
“I was a tad bit uncomfortable,” Glaze later said, adding that he would have preferred that Katy had no kissed him.
