Ryan Seacrest was caught saying some pretty questionable stuff to Katy Perry on live television this week, and it seems like the only person who isn’t embarrassed is Seacrest himself.

It all happened during a live taping of “American Idol,” on which Seacrest stars as a host and Katy Perry as a judge.

On the most recent episode, Seacrest was caught chatting with Perry during what he almost surely thought was a commercial break. (RELATED: Kelly Ripa Voices Support For Ryan Seacrest Amid Sexual Misconduct Claim [VIDEO])

“We’re on,” Perry said, but Seacrest probably didn’t hear.

“Your mum’s pretty,” he said to the pop star.

“My mom?” Perry asked, quickly adding, “Well, I hope the apple doesn’t fall from the tree.”

“You are, too, but you’re not a mum yet,” Seacrest said back.

“Not yet,” she said.

“Wanna talk about it?” he asked.

“Don’t start,” Lionel Richie, who also stars as a judge, told Seacrest.

This isn’t the first time Seacrest has been accused of inappropriate workplace conduct. Seacrest’s former stylist Suzie Hardy claimed he sexually assaulted her for years, beginning in 2008 when she was just starting out as a new mom. (RELATED: E! Network Defends Its Investigation Of Ryan Seacrest)

E! network launched an investigation into Seacrest but found no compelling evidence to charge or reprimand him. Speculation about the star remains, however, which only makes this recent encounter with Katy Perry seem even shadier.
