KeKe Palmer was really upset with singer Trey Songz because he used a cameo of her in his music video. Obviously, KeKe originally told him she was not interested. Songz took it upon himself to add her without her knowledge. They both took to social media with a war of words against each other. Here is what KeKe shared with E News.
The Scream Queens actress and singer took to Instagram on Saturday, slamming the R&B artist for including her cameo in a music video when she allegedly did not authorize its use. The music video in question is Trey Songz and Fabolous‘ remix to the Travis Scott and Young Thugsong, “Pick Up the Phone,” which was released on YouTube yesterday.
This is preposterous. How am I in this video Trey? After you found me in a closet HIDING because I was so afraid of anymore conflict,” Palmer writes. “Literally my last option was to hide because you all would not listen when I said I did not want to be in the video the FIRST time.”
She continues, “Just cause you give someone food and alcohol and throw in a little sexual intimidation doesn’t mean they will buckle. Yet, you still disrespected me as a young women, whom you’ve known since she was TWELVE. YOU STILL, defied my wishes and in turn showed your lack of respect for a brand that took me fourteen years to build and put me in the video against my wishes.”
Palmer then claims Songz and his production team secretly filmed her during the music video shoot. In the video, the 23-year-old briefly appears sitting on a couch taking selfies on her phone. Her likeness also appears in the track’s lyrics, as MIKExANGEL raps, “I palm her p–sy like KeKe / Like KeKe, Like Keke”
“Come on bruh, I clearly said no and you said okay, yet I was being secretly filmed when you told me “let me just show you the idea”?? Wow. This is what I’m referring to in my previous post, this is the sexism and misogyny I refer to because if I was a dude, he wouldn’t have even tried me like this,” Palmer adds.
Trey Songz address the sexual intimidation allegations
Trey Songz released another statement on Instagram to defend himself. “So sorry for those that believe everything without knowing anything. However, I cannot devote my life to responding to, or clearing up every side of every story you hear about me, when would I actually live? I know my character, I know my truth, I know my heart. God does too. Words to anyone who’s being tested right now…I feel you, it’ll pass, I’ve been in a million storms…they all pass. Don’t let the noisy thoughts of others drown your inner voice, or inner peace for that matter.”
This is a really sticky situation for singer Songz. Maybe he can make it up to KeKe by giving her a substantial amount of money and an apology.
