Is Minka Kelly bringing extra drama to the set of ABC's Charlie's Angels reboot. The brown-eyed beauty allegedly experienced an incident of sexual harassment at the hands of a misguided crew member, RadarOnline reports.
According to an interview in Star magazine, a source close to the Miami production says a crew member was fired for being fresh with Kelly, who plays street-racing Angel Eve French. What did he do? The staffer allegedly swatted the 31-year-old actress' booty with a $100-dollar bill in his hand on Aug. 23.
"It seems like it was meant to be a joke, but clearly it was inappropriate. Minka was shocked and absolutely irate," says the on-set source. "She was still fuming about it hours later."
The following day, when the crew member attempted to apologize for the incident, Kelly allegedly slapped him in the face. He was reportedly removed from the production the next day.
"The whole set was buzzing about the incident," the source adds. "It was quite a scandal. One day he was there, and the next he was gone."
Although reps for Kelly and the primetime series (which debuts Thursday night on ABC) refused to comment, the fired worker confirmed that there was "an incident" but declined to elaborate.
"It was just a misunderstanding," the unidentified man told Star.
Word to the wise: Keep your hands away from Minka Kelly's behind!
