After Trey Songz put Keke Palmer in his video for “Pick Up The Phone”, Keke Palmer has made it public that he had no authorization to put her in it and is now taking up legal action against the singer.
Palmer went on Larry King to speak of the matter and spoke her side of it.
“I wasn’t in the right mind,” she said. “I had been drinking and eating and it wasn’t a professional environment. It was not a place where I was like I’m in the right mind to decide if this works with my brand, if I like the artist, I don’t know nothing about the artist that’s also in the song.”
When the video first released, Keke publicly bashed Trey stating that he used “sexual intimidation” against her to persuade her to be in the video.
King asked her to elaborate on what she meant by sexual intimidation in which she explains “I feel as a female often I’m put in situations where sometimes males will use their masculinity, their sexuality to taunt you.”
Palmer continued with an example, saying, “It would be like you going to a party where the biggest jock is there and the whole time he’s like you can get screwed, you can get this you can get that, ‘You ain’t no little girl anymore.'”
In regards to the legal action the actress justifies why she is doing so “My point isn’t to say it’s just specifically about this guy and what he did,” she said. “It’s the overall idea that you can’t just do stuff to people and it’s alright — no matter who you are.”
