publish date: 2017-01-25
Keke Palmer said she is pursuing legal action against Trey Songz after the singer put her in his "Pick Up the Phone" video allegedly without her permission.
Speaking with Larry King, Palmer explained her side of the story with the video, which has now had the footage of her removed. She said she was at a party in Miami for New Year's Eve that wound up being a video shoot, but she specifically told the video's producer, assistant producer and Trey Songz himself that she didn't want to be involved.
"I wasn't in the right mind," she said. "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."
