Trey Songz might want to call his lawyerz (I’ll show myself out), because Keke Palmer appears to want to take their music video drama to a legal level. Yesterday, Keke appeared on Larry King’s show Larry King Now to discuss the messy social media situation that happened after Trey Songz released a music video featuring a cameo by her without her permission.
To recap, Trey invited Keke to a party at his home in Miami, which ended up being a video shoot for his song Pick Up the Phone. Keke says she repeatedly told people that she didn’t want anything to do with the video, which led to a drunk Keke hiding out in a closet. Despite her requests not to appear in the video, her face ended up in the final cut due to Trey using “sexual intimidation” on her. The video has since been yanked down, but that’s not enough justice for Keke. She plans on pursuing legal action.
She also sort of explained further what Trey Songz’s “sexual intimidation” included.
“I feel, as a female, often I’m put in situations where sometimes males will use their masculinity, their sexuality, to taunt you…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 no more.'”
Confused hermit crab Larry King probably thought, “I don’t remember ever being a little girl, but okay.”
Keke’s lawyer should have no problem convincing a judge that their client was tricked into appearing in that video. It’s not a real video shoot without proper release forms and a craft services table full of granola bars and a big bowl of apples. Did she sign release forms? Did she grab a handful of granola bars and a red delicious for the ride home? No? Case closed!
