Keke Palmer Accuses Trey Songz of ‘Sexual Intimidation’ After Unauthorized Music Video Cameo

Keke Palmer: I Was Sexually Abused
Keke Palmer got real about her experiences as a sexual abuse survivor.

Keke Palmer isn’t too happy with Trey Songz.

The former Disney star blasted Songz after she was featured in his “Pick Up The Phone” music video without her consent. Palmer voiced her frustrations on social media on Saturday (Jan. 21, 2017), writing, “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.”

Palmer, 23, further accused the 32-year-old singer of using food, alcohol and “sexual intimidation” to get her to agree to the cameo.

“Just cause you give someone food and alcohol and throw in a little sexual intimidation doesn’t mean they will buckle,” the actress continued. “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.”

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?

I didn’t even know they were filming. Meanwhile I said I did not want to be in the video. I said it more than once and kept being pressured,” Palmer also wrote on Twitter. “I literally said no. I can’t believe they still put me in it. I said no!”

She also shared her own story in-person in a series of videos shared on Instagram. 

Songz since responded to the accusations, tweeting, “Babygirl buggin. Point blank period. Got my number, coulda called, saw the cameras and the lights, heard action … I don’t do this twitter shit, girl you know me and got my number f*ck outta here.”

The music video, which also features Fabolous and MIKExANGEL, has since been taken offline.
