Keke Palmer Might Sue Trey Songz For Putting Her In His Music Video
Washed up Drake forerunner Trey Songz allegedly pulled some shady shizz on Keke Palmer this week. But the gag’s on him cuz it looks like she’s gonna take his butt to court.
Earlier this week, Keke Palmer Instagrammed a still of herself from Trey Songz’s new music video. She claimed she never consented to be in his music video.
“How am I in this video Trey?” Keke asked. “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.”
She continued, “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.’”
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?
Unsurprisingly, Trey Songz brushed off her complaints saying, “Babygirl buggin. Point blank period. Got my number, coulda called, saw the cameras and the lights, heard action.”

But then a curious thing happened.
The music video was removed from the Internet.
In an interview with Larry King on Wednesday, Palmer elaborated on what went down that night.
“When I started to see cameras, I was like, okay, they filming a video. Ain’t got nothing to do with me, you know. Until they started asking me to be in it. Because I wasn’t in the right mind. 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.”
“I feel as a female, often, I’m put in situations where sometimes males will use their masculinity, their sexuality, to taunt you. I hate to have to bring and say that and make it known, but, I mean, look, I an’t the first person who’s gone through this.”
Men do this sort of thing all the time.
Maybe they’re not all secretly filming you for their music videos, but we’ve all been in a situation where you’ve told a guy you don’t wanna hook up with him but he can’t take a hint and spends the rest of the night trying to wheedle his way into your bed, right?
Keke also said in the interview that she hasn’t heard from Trey Songz since all this went down, but that won’t stop from from taking legal action against him.
More power to you, Keke.
Teach that guy that no means no.
