Keke Palmer has slammed rapper Trey Songz after he reportedly used footage of her in his music video without consent.
The Scream Queens star makes a cameo in Songz and Fabolous‘ video for the remix of Travis Scott and Young Thug‘s track Pick Up the Phone. In the promo, Keke is seen sitting on a couch, looking at her phone and taking pictures.
The video surfaced on YouTube on Saturday (21Jan17) and the 23-year-old has now taken to Instagram to express her anger.
“This is preposterous,” she writes. “How am I in this video Trey? 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.”
Palmer also accuses Songz of trying to intimidate her to appear in the video.
“Just cause you give someone food and alcohol and throw in a little sexual intimidation doesn’t mean they will buckle,” she 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…”
Trey has responded to Keke’s claims, insisting fans need to hear both sides of the story before forming an opinion.
“So sorry for those that believe everything without knowing anything,” he writes on Instagram. “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…”
