Keke Palmer announced a pursuit of legal action against Trey Songz following his decision to feature her in a recent video without seeking permission. Keke told Larry King that even though the video has been taken down, the lawsuit is more about “the overall idea that you can’t just do stuff to people and it’s alright.” In a new interview, however, Keke admits that the entire situation has been resolved.

Keke Palmer is taking legal action against Trey Songz for including a clip of her in a music video for “Pick Up The Phone.” Keke said as much in a new interview with Larry King, where she confirmed that she never consented to her likeness being used in the video. She also explained what she meant by “sexual intimidation” when she addressed the incident earlier in January.
“Just that: sexual intimidating,” Keke said when Larry asked her what it meant. “I feel, as a female, often I’m put in situations where sometimes males will use their masculinity, their sexuality to taunt you.”
Keke said she’s not crazy about addressing the issue, but knows she isn’t the first person to deal with it. In order to explain it better to Larry, she used the example of a high school party, 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,’ and ‘You ain’t no little girl no more.'”
While Keke didn’t accuse Trey of that sort of creepy language, she did share her side of the story from the night in question. According to Keke, she told Trey, his producer and an assistant “no” when they asked her to appear in the video.
Keke Palmer caught wind of her cameo in Trey Songz’s latest music video, “Pick Up the Phone,” and she is now accusing him of using footage without her consent. In a storm of social media posts, Keke takes serious aim at Trey for allegedly using “sexual intimidation” to pull the whole thing off. She used this most recent incident to speak out against how women are treated in the industry.
Nick Jonas recently found his way to the set of an upcoming Kevin Hart music video. A few Instagram posts and a video seem to confirm Nick’s involvement in his “Jumanji” co-star’s project. The photographs suggest that the video is for Kevin’s track with Trey Songz called “Push It On Me.” Nick, Kevin and Trey were all tagged in the posts from a woman who appears to have been working at the Agoura Hills studio location. “We even had a Jonas brother slide thru,” she wrote in the caption of one post.
