Katy Perry Reveals She Was Once Suspended From School for 'Making Sexual Motions' at a Tree

Katy Perry was suspended from sixth grade years ago when she pretended a tree was Tom Cruise and “began making sexual motions (pelvic thrusts)” towards the tree.

The 34-year-old entertainer took a trip down memory lane and posted the suspension notice on her Instagram Story for all her followers to read.

“At the 2:00pm recess, Katy and four other students were in an ‘off-limits’ area (behind the backboards) practicing a skit. Katy pretended that a tree was Tom Cruise and began making sexual motions (‘pelvic thrusts’) to the tree,” the suspension notice read. “When Katy met with [her teachers] she was asked to describe or demonstrate what she had been seen doing in the playground in front of some other students. Katy chose to describe it. Her words were ‘it was inappropriate’ and ‘like making out.’”

The suspension notice is dated November 14, 1996. Read it in full below!
