Katy Perry

Stripper FIRED

After Strip Club Photo Leak

2/13/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of the strippers who posed with Katy Perry inside a Santa Barbara strip club has been FIRED for violating the Cardinal rule ... taking pics of their encounter and making them public.

Sources tell TMZ ... honchos from Spearmint Rhino's corporate offices marched over to the Santa Barbara location earlier this week and promptly fired Cassidy (her stripper name) in front of all the other girls.

23-year-old Cassidy -- pictured above on the right -- was one of the girls working Super Bowl night, when Katy rolled in with boyfriend John Mayer and dropped stacks all over the place.

Cassidy, Katy, and other dancers posed for several photos ... TMZ obtained the pics and posted them a couple days later -- and management was pissed.

We're told Cassidy -- who has a child -- violated her club's "no cameras" rule by taking the photos and making them public and that's why she got canned.


We're told Cassidy was fired in front of all the other girls to send a clear message ... don't mess with client privacy, or else.

The child is a minor.
TMZ is blasting his identity, that his Mom is a stripper.
The kid s photo should not be up.
The mother may not make good decisions, but TMZ and lawyer Harvey should be aware not to expose children.

Dude. the picture of the kid on such an article... I don't care if she had that picture public for the world to see, it's disgusting to include it in this article. Use your head tmz... poor taste. I usually love following you guys and reading your gossip, but this is just f'd.

I almost felt bad for her until I saw her taking a selfie with her child while making one of those puzzy lip faces. I'm sure she'll find other employment.

Slash? What exactly is funny about showing a helpless child and identifying her Mom in pornographic photos, and as being a stripper? I am against child exploitation. Are you implying that you, Slash, are in favor of child exploitation?

I'm not on social media, and don't plan on joining either, but here is what bugs me..... So many selfies contain backgrounds that are messy/cluttered or just downright nasty! Put down the camera and pick up a sponge and clean. Whenever I take pictures I stage a scene like a real photog. I believe if you're going to take a picture that lasts do it right. Just saying...

Lol she dates John Mayer. I wish my life was like that movie The One so I can go to an alternate reality and see Katy Perry as an average girl working at the dollar store. John Mayer can give shine my shoes, and il be the rockstar. I don't care about these people.... and the stripper looks like any other trash I have seen anyways. She got fired? A lot of other places welcome trash.
