Keke Palmer has accused Trey Songz of "sexual intimidation" after he included her in his new ‘Pick Up the Phone’ music video.
The 23-year-old actress has hit out at the musician, accusing him of being intimidating towards her and insisting she never wanted to make a cameo appearance in the video.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Keke wrote: "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. (sic)"
Keke also claimed that the same situation would not have occurred to a guy.
She said: "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 bulls**t. 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?
