The reboot of iconic '70s show Charlie's Angels has been rocked by an incident of sexual harassment, Star has learned exclusively.

A crew member was fired from the Miami production after he inappropriately touched star Minka Kelly, who plays street racer Angel Eve French alongside General Hospital star Annie Ilozeh and Transformers actress Rachael Taylor. The staffer came up behind the 31-year-old actress — who last year was voted Sexiest Woman Alive — and slapped her across the rear end while holding a $100 bill in his hand on Aug. 23, an insider tells Star. "It seems like it was meant to be a joke, but clearly it was inappropriate."

When the crew member confronted Minka with an apology the next day, the ex-girlfriend of Yankees star Derek Jeter slapped him in the face. Television executives had him removed from the production the next day, Star reports.
