Drama! Keke Palmer Slams Trey Songz Over “Unapproved” Music Video

Published: Sunday 22nd Jan 2017 by Sam

Keke Palmer is unimpressed with Trey Songz and wants everyone to know about it.

The singer-actress had a volcanic outburst against the R&B playboy over a video she features in that she not only didn’t approve, but wasn’t aware she was even being filmed for.

Full story below…

The ‘Scream Queens’ star appears in the clip for Trigga and Fabolous‘ new song ‘Pick Up The Phone’ which also features MIKExANGEL.

Explicit lyrically, the visual spotlights Palmer at the exact point her name is sung by MIKE (“I’m palm that p***y like Keke”). [Play from the 0.34 mark]

Well, according to the 23-year-old she learned she was in the video when everyone else did.

Taking direct aim at Songz, she said…

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. Come on bruh, I clearly said no and you said okay, yet I was being secretly filmed?? 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.

Life is life. This stuff happens everyday ain’t no different in “hollywood.” I guess I should say sorry for being real, but I won’t.

She also verbalised her frustrations via a series of Instagram clips…

Given the gravity of some corners of Keke’s claims, Songz seemed to have no choice but to respond. Defending himself, while vaguely addressing the drama, he posted the following on Instagram…

2017 may have just begun, but the “gag is” that the mess is already piling on thick and fast.

    This is a weird situation. If Keke didn’t want to be in the video couldn’t she just have left the party? Also don’t like how she keeps going on about “you’ve known me since I was 12.” I feel there’s some sinister intention behind her mentioning that. Regardless, if she didn’t wanna be in the video then they should’ve respected her wishes. Did she even try resolving this in private before running to social media?

    • January 22, 2017

      nothing sinister about knowing someone from they was a child, you are clearly reaching for something that isn’t there.

      • FIERCE January 22, 2017

        I agree but my point is more about Keke herslef because she kept pointing out how Trey has known her since she was 12 and then talking about how “sexual intimidation” wasn’t going to work. It’s like she wants us to link her 12 year old self to this when they aren’t related at all.

    • Meme January 22, 2017

      She was intoxicated and she knew trey personally. She shouldn’t have to leave the party. If I tell my friends no, it’s no. They respect that…I shouldn’t have to leave.

    • BAE January 22, 2017

      Keke is becoming the new internet thug. She now getting into loads bs drama.

      But still what trey did was lowdown bottom queen move. If she says no like she said..

  2. SNF January 22, 2017

    Why is Trey making music? The label
    Should save that money…

    • FIERCE January 22, 2017

      Now this I agree with. The song is trash. I’m sick of this trap style music. It’s ruining urban music

  3. Sheeno Mandela January 22, 2017

    Hahahaha keke is hot and talented, but come one homegirl, you’re grown and s*** ass could have simply left the party. Plus, you have trey’s number why not reach out to him privately rather than blasted him social media. I do feel a publicity stunt in the making. It seems fishy lol.

    • FAF January 22, 2017

      Because the vid was released to the public so it makes them think she was compliant in that line “p**** like keke” like she’s some thot cool with that

      How do y’all not see the problem

      She’s drunk and called uber

      Uber takes 5-6 mins on New Years probably longer in Miami

  4. Duffster Lovato ? January 22, 2017

    If she didn’t want to appear in the video then they should have just kept it that way.

  5. Jeans January 22, 2017

    Keke Bye! Sit down! You have legs and could’ve left the party! You just want something to post about. Sit!

    • Jason January 22, 2017

      Did you not hear her say she called an über?! And she is a celebrity, so I wouldn’t be walking down the street at night on New Years either. No means no, that’s all!

    • JustCoastWitHa January 23, 2017

      orrr.. just don’t put me in the video like I asked.

  6. Meme January 22, 2017

    Everyone saying she could have left the party…NO she shouldn’t have to leave anything. She clearly stated she was too drunk to make any business decisions and didn’t want to be in the video. That’s that, end of situation. Weather she stayed or not isn’t the question. They edit the video and she’s still in up. Did he not understand when she said no? Or he just didn’t give a F?

  7. Mo January 22, 2017

    She hid in the damn closet

  8. B2B January 22, 2017

    I’m convinced these new artist have no idea what a publicist is. She knows better you’ve been in this industry far too long keke! She probably did more harm by blasting him, should’ve just had the video pulled. Low key sounds like free promo for both they asses

  9. Fancy BISH January 22, 2017

    I’m trying to figure out why he’s still around lol…I’m not used to artists just lingering like they do these days! Back in the day, you were lucky if you made it to your second album…Iggy is getting traditional record company treatment lol…how many albums does Trey have? Does he have more than TLC? Destiny’s Child? Boyz II Men? If so, then it’s time for him to go! Cause he’s just wasting space…like, for real…what has he done that’s so memorable? I’m longing for the days when record companies would replace dat a** with the certified quickness…Tommy Mattola would have BEEN replaced Trey Songz with Grey Notez by now…you ain’t got to go home, but you got to get the hellz outta here! It’s better for you to go home than to not have luggage…cause they can send you your luggage, but don’t miss your flight *Beyonce voice* lol

    • FAF January 22, 2017

      He has s** songs and a decent body that’s why

      But he has no accolades

      He should be on love and hip hop

  10. Lake Erie January 22, 2017

    Ugh, this is a interesting situation. But I will say that Treys response was very broad and passive lol.. meaning I THINK I believe HER. As of the past couple years, the only thing that had Trey trending was when he when to jail probably a couple weeks ago and now this. So for him to say he can’t speak on everything that is said is hilarious! Lol. Because no one has really been saying anything about him lol in years prior. So he could have went deeper or expounded because it’s out here so now its up for discussion. And like someone said above, she trusted him, this wasn’t a label decision for them to link and they were actual friends so he should have respected here word..

    Idk what’s going on with him but if true, this is really a thirst mode move, especially for him. He has really changed over the years.

  11. Shakira Stan January 22, 2017

    Whenever I see Trey, I can’t forget that prince shade LMAO! That summarised everything about his career.

    • Fancy BISH January 22, 2017

      Exactly lol

  12. Coolness January 22, 2017

    It never ceases to amaze me how people (especially other WOMEN) will always find a way to blame her for being disrespected by a man all while totally absolving him of guilt. Regardless of Keke’s recently raunchier public image, Trey had no right to use her image without her permission. IDGAF if she was sprawled buck naked while smoking a blunt at that particular event, if she said no, then she said NO! Btw, I can’t be the only one who is just about tired of Trey at this point. Between his wack music and him seemingly getting into controversy all of a sudden, I think it’s about time we realise his 15 minutes is over. He was cute for a good three or four years when Chris Brown was still trying to get back into the public’s good graces. However, seeing as he now wants to swerve into Chris’ unapologetic bad boy lane, I saw we let him tank his own career.

    I’m so tired of this Rihanna wannabe, always looking for attention on social media. Gurl BYE. You could have called him instead of jumping on instagram.

    • Baddiebeymyfav January 22, 2017

      How can you call Keke a “Rihanna wannabe” when she’s not an industry whure like her? Keke is her own person. Nothing about her reminds me of RHIGOAT…. so please STOP IT. ?

    What’s funny about the Hip-Hop community is their inability to see their own hypocrisies. The lyrics of which popular songs recorded in a studio under consent that are littered with the word p–y and all manners of vile language. I was at a barbecue yesterday for the birthday of a 3-4 year old black girl in a typical hood city etc. There was a bounce house and kids running around ages 2-11 etc. I brought my kids there also who were exceedingly uncomfortable at the music playing which was typical trap hip hop etc. Every word was p—y, f–k, bit%%, d@#$,a$$, n**gg* etc. I thought to myself as I looked at the dilapidated houses, broken down cars, dirty streets, and I wondered who is causing this? The mind state of a collected groups of individuals produce their surroundings.Everything in a culture is interrelated and inspires the other. the food inspires music~dance~education~relationships~politics~health~crime~clothing~drug use/non-use etc. in a cyclical dynamic that reverberates and pulses to give a group its essence. So when people say music does not influence poverty,disease, crime tell them that they are full of s***.

    • Belladonna January 26, 2017

      Wow! You just said what I have been feeling for like 2years. ??

  15. eric January 22, 2017

    I understand her frustration, but hasn’t Trey proven he’s not really big on being a person of good character? That being said, what was she doing at a party in such poor company to begin with? Why would she choose to associate with people who make such lousy music and who always find a way to demean women? You don’t go to a party with people who continuously demonstrate that they have no respect for themselves and others. This one is on you Keke. Choose different friends.

    • Teflon Boy January 22, 2017

      Can you honestly say everyone in your life is of virtuous character? I mean, you can answer with a confident ‘yes’ but the truth is you don’t know what someone is truly capable of until they bring their personal brand of disrespect to YOUR door (as opposed to someone else’s). Maybe Trey’s behaviour was cool up until this incident, sounds like that to me. I never understand why victims are blamed in these type of instances.

    Work ain’t honest, but it pays the bills! Ain’t like she’s getting booked anyway else…

    Who is she?

  18. Caleb January 22, 2017

    I used to be such a fan of his, but after the video came out a few years ago of him being rude to an excited young fan, and now this… he’s just not person I envisioned him to be earlier on in his career.

  19. Now time yca ritish wauyz January 26, 2017

    Smdh what a hot mess
