KeKe Palmer Accuses Trey Songz of ‘Sexual Intimidation’ After Adding Her Cameo in His Video Without Permission
According to E! News, the Scream Queens star found out that her likeness appeared in a video for Songz and Fabolous' remix to the Travi$ Scott and Young Thug's song, "Pick Up the Phone.” Palmer jumped on her Twitter and Instagram accounts claiming that she was secretly filmed at a party and that she told Songz that she didn’t want to take part in the visual.
In the lengthy missive, the actress accuses Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson, of using food, alcohol and a "little sexual intimidation" to pressure her into appearing in the video. "This is preposterous. How am I in this video Trey?" she writes. "After you found me in a closet HIDING because I was so afraid of anymore conflict. 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."
"Just cause you give someone food and alcohol and throw in a little sexual intimidation doesn't mean they will buckle," Palmer continues. "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. 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."
Palmer then goes on to explain that "no means no," and that when it comes to her business she is to be respected and not be taken advantage of. "I'm serious about my business and you will not use my likeness without MY permission," she states. "People have to listen to women and stop questioning them and their intelligence."
Palmer later explained her position in two IG videos, which you can watch below.
Currently, Songz's "Pick Up the Phone" video still features Palmer's unauthorized cameo. Reps for Trey Songz had no comment on the matter.
