Keke Palmer has called out Trey Songz for supposedly putting her in the music video for his song “Pick Up the Phone” without her consent.

Palmer took to Instagram to share the issue. She posted a screenshot of a tweet made by a fan expressing their excitement over seeing her in the video. The actress answered the tweet, saying: “This was not approved. You cannot use someone's 'likeness' without their approval.”

In the caption for the screenshot, Palmer asked Songz directly: “How am I in this video Trey? After you found me in a closet HIDING because I was so afraid of any more 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.”

Palmer said that she went to Songz's place thinking that they were just going to party with their friends. The singer-actress said she explicitly told Songz that she was not going to be part of the video because her mindset at the time was not on business and that she came there as a friend. She also said that Songz used sexual intimidation to make her agree, but he remained unsuccessful in getting her approval.

While Songz has not addressed Palmer's message directly, he did post something on Instagram which appears to be alluding to the situation he and Palmer are in. In the caption of a photo of himself having a good time, Songz said: “So sorry for those that believe everything without knowing anything. However, I cannot devote my life to responding to or clearing up every side of every story you hear about me. When would I actually live?”

The singer added: “I know my character. I know my truth. I know my heart.”

Palmer has since clarified that she has no problem with being part of videos made by friends for free, but the problem with Songz's situation is she already said no but was still filmed.
