A stripper who posed for pictures with Katy Perry during the pop star's recent night out at a gentleman's club in California has reportedly lost her job over the incident.

The Firework hitmaker enjoyed a post-Super Bowl party with her boyfriend John Mayer at the Spearmint Rhino club in Santa Barbara, California on 2 February (14) and snaps from the event subsequently emerged online.

The pictures showed Perry posing with a group of strippers, including a 23-year-old brunette named Cassidy, who has now reportedly been fired for violating the venue's no camera policy by taking the shots, according to Tmz.com.

The website reports she was dismissed by club bosses earlier this week (beg10Feb14).
