‘I Kissed a Girl’ singer Katy Perry didn’t only do that to an unsuspecting television personality, recent reports indicated (click here to read), but it’s also alleged she groped the woman.
Just days after her ‘Teenage Dream’ music video co-star, actor Josh Kloss, accused her of sexual misconduct for pulling down his pants and exposing his penis to a crowd (click here to read more), news circulated the 34-year-old diva inappropriately touched Georgian TV host Tina Kandelaki at an industry party.
As the conversation about shifting the lens of the #MeToo movement to problematic women in the industry heated up, Kandelaki backtracked on the report and says she was misquoted and mistranslated. Her statement refuting the way the press has painted the story did not see her deny the event occurred, however, the journalist asserts Perry’s touchiness was not harassment in the way it’s been depicted.

Defending Perry via an open letter, the TV hostess’ statement – posted here in Russian – has been translated as the below:
"Publications of various weights and varying degrees of yellowness wrote about my post on Telegram, but they are united by one thing - everyone believes that I “blamed” Perry. Of course, I understand that harassment and other #metoo in the West is now one of the key trends, but I carefully re-read my post and did not find words of accusation. I told a comedic episode from my life and, on the whole, would have been absolutely calm if I had repeated it. I certainly would not sue anyone in pursuit of every second hype. So remember other episodes and other "victims", if so, hunting. This will not be difficult, because the facts are no longer interesting to anyone, and their interpretation has long replaced."
