Actress/Singer Keke Palmer is fuming mad that she found herself in the latest music video of singer Trey Songz and now she wants justice. According to her account of the situation, she was invited to a party at Trey Songz house but learned soon after arriving that he was shooting a music video which she was not prepared to be in. After after allegedly telling him she didn’t want to be a part of the video he agreed however a video was released with her image in it. She took to her instagram page to give him a piece of her mind and to let her fans know she didn’t green light her appearance in said video. She accused him of taking advantage of the fact the she was under the influence of alcohol and kept the cameras rolling. Here is what she posted on her IG page:
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. 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. 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. 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. Let this be a lesson to all, I’m not for the bullshit. I’m serious about my business and you will not use my likeness without MY permission. When you in front of a boss you treat them like one, like I treat YOU. NO MEANS NO!!!!!!! People have to listen to women and stop questioning them and their intelligence. Speak up, cause when you look someone in the face and they say “I understand. You don’t have to feel pressured to do the video” and they STILL put you in it, it is a violation. It would be great to be able to handle these things privately but why when they aren’t respected?
Trey Songz had his own response to her claims:
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.
Do you think Palmer should have just called her friend Trey on the phone and ask he remove the video?
